About Me

Welcome! My name is Hillary Phillips and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Michigan. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Youth Studies and Master of Arts in both Professional and School Counseling from Central Michigan University, FIRE UP CHIPS! Since graduating in 2010 I spent six years working at a local community college, serving as both adjunct faculty in the psychology department and in a full time role as an academic advisor. In 2016 I began working as the sole School Counselor for a junior and senior high school building with nearly 500 students. I have worked extensively with youth aged 12-21 but also have experience working with adults who might be struggling with career related concerns.

Let's be real. Life can be HARD. Sometimes, life can be so hard that it's almost impossible to see the good that lies right in front of you. Let me help you tackle what is within your control and figure out how to appropriately cope with the things that are not in your control.

Hillary is incredible. She's patient and kind, she knows when to listen and when to make me laugh, and she cares. She just truly cares, and that makes all the hard work of therapy absolutely worth it.

Hillary has been a wonderful counselor! She takes the time to listen and make sure that you feel heard with whatever your issues are. She challenges you to find the root meaning of the situations, and takes the time to understand. Overall, she was wonderful and I will definitely use her again if I need, and would be more than happy to recommend her to anyone in need of a therapist!

In the few sessions I have had with Hillary, I feel like she has understood and directly addressed my needs and wants out of therapy to help me best overcome what I started therapy for. She is extremely relatable and makes every session constructive and personal to make you feel more comfortable, while also feeling accomplished by the end of the session. I could continue to rave about Hillary, but I will leave it at I highly recommend her!
