(PhD, LPC, NCC)

About Me

Hello! I am Dr. Vivia Hill-Silcott, I earned a PhD. in Counselor Education and Supervision. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a National Certified Counselor with over 5 years of direct counseling experience. I live in Georgia with my family, 2 dogs, and a betta fish named Vivia. I helped clients who suffer with anxiety, stress management, depression, identity intersectionality, grief, and trauma. I have spent many years working with college students, African-American gay men in college, and adolescents. I also help African-American youth to explore their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, and also how to remain resilient.

I believe that each client is unique and diverse, as such, I prefer to integrate perspectives from multiple theoretical approaches that is a suitable fit for the client. I utilize assessment instruments to help clients understand their concerns. I believe the intersectionality with each client’s identity should be affirmed. I am trained in multicultural therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and solution focused brief therapy.

I prefer engaging in warm dialogues with clients. I believe that when a client experiences warmth from a counselor, unique opportunities emerge for the client to engage in honest communication. My only goal for counseling is to assist my client regain control and eventually lead healthier, happier, and a more fulfilled life.

I am committed to assisting you to overcome the challenges that you are facing. I feel honored and privileged to support you along your journey.

Vivia has been a wonderful counselor. She listens to me, challenges me (productively), and supports me 100%. She knows the right questions to ask and brings in examples from her own life to remind me that struggle is universal, that we are resilient, and that we will all be okay.
