I enjoy my sessions with Russell and actually look forward to them each week. He’s very supportive of me and is helping me to love myself and have confidence in my choices. He’s super easy to talk to. 10/10 highly recommend
I never thought i would be comfortable with a male therapist and Dr. Hilliard has proven me wrong in 4 sessions without even trying. He is incredibly insightful, patient, and kind. He has made me think in new ways I never would have. I love that he assigns homework! I personally think that is a vital part of therapy, it makes you think and do work even when not in session. He respond quickly and he is also incredibly honest without being “harsh”. He is absolutely wonderful.
1000 thanks for Dr. Hilliard’s patience, kindness and support. I feel very lucky to have him on my team.
Dr. Hilliard has been a fantastic therapist. Our sessions have been so beneficial for how I manage anxiety. Highly (highly) recommend
Dr. Hilliard has so much compassion and empathy for me. He shares his wisdom without judgement, and gives me the space to express myself. He has been seriously helpful.
He is the best!
