About Me

Hi, I’m Hilary! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LISW-CP) in South Carolina. I have experience working with adolescents and adults with a wide range of concerns including trauma and PTSD, depression, anxiety, substance use, self-esteem, stress, ADHD, motivation, health and wellness, anger, parenting, and coping with challenges and adjustments. Throughout my career, I have worked with individuals on an outpatient and inpatient basis within community agencies, private hospitals, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and my own private practice. Ultimately, providing therapy through this virtual platform has become my favorite modality for therapy as it breaks down barriers, opens up doors and allows you to communicate with me when and how you want.

My passion is to help you move forward by taking the steps needed to move in the direction you want to. To do that, I use evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I am also certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure and Focused Health Coaching. The approach we take together will depend on your specific situation. As everyone is different, I tailor these approaches to your specific needs, goals, and situations. Throughout our journey, I will remain warm, gentle, empathetic, and firm while pushing you to reach your goals through honesty, support and effective techniques. I work with each individual to develop and practice cognitive and behavioral coping skills to manage stress and stressful situations throughout life. I believe in finding the strengths within each of you, and using these strengths to adapt, cope, and grow.

I often reinforce that if you continue to do what you’ve always done, you’ll continue to get what you’ve always gotten. So, what does all of this mean if you choose to begin therapy? It simply means we will work together to figure out how to change. We will find some thoughts and behaviors that may be keeping you “stuck,” and find more helpful thoughts and behaviors that lead to feeling better emotionally and reaching your goals.

I also believe the basis of any life-changing journey is a strong therapeutic relationship, and I enjoy spending time getting to know each of you to foster that support.

When you are ready, I look forward meeting you, getting to know you, and supporting and empowering you to reach your goals and live the life you want to live.

Hilary is truly an exceptional therapist. I was ready to give up on therapy until Hilary was recommended to me. She’s incredibly insightful, knowledgeable, kind, and extremely well spoken. Not only does she help me with processing life’s many inconsistencies and troubles, but also helps me be kinder to myself and accept all parts of me. I am not sure if I’ll ever be able to fully put into words how much she has helped me. I now recommend therapy to all of my friends and family because of my exceptional therapist.

I took a break from Betterhelp for a year due to financial strain, but the whole year I couldn't wait to talk to Hilary again. She's incredibly caring, and listens in an unbiased, professional manner. I have benefited greatly from my sessions with her, and have recommended several friends to Betterhelp because of her.
