Wayne Hill

(MS, LPC)

About Me

Hi, my name is Wayne Hill and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have over 14 years experience in the field of mental health counseling. I specialize in working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, grief, social problems, relationship problems, and compulsive behaviors. I have experience working closely with individuals who have found themselves stuck and don't know what to do about it. I have had the pleasure of assisting countless individuals, couples and families with resolving these problems so that their self esteem and positive self regard is improved, leading to a more fulfilling lifestyle.
My approach is to develop an empathic (understanding) non-threatening relationship with my clients. I believe that it is essential, to achieve a positive outcome, that I am able to identify with your unique situation (s). Together we will identify the exact nature of the problem and then, through cognitive behavioral and client centered techniques, develop the goals and objectives to produce results that you desire.
I completed my masters of science degree in Psychology (Community Counseling)and my bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Science at National Louis University. I also completed my certification in Human Services Counseling (with high honors) from The College of DuPage, Glen Ellyn Illinois.
My professional experience includes various roles in the mental health sector in an inpatient and outpatient clinical setting. I have taught in the public school system and I currently work with kids and teens in community based programs. I have found that listening to adolescents and helping them work thru their problems has broadened my understanding of the family systems. I am also a U.S. Army veteran and welcome the opportunity to assist veterans as well as others dealing with any mental health or life challenges.
If you are seeking help identifying and resolving any mental health, personal, emotional, or social issues , I am here for you, and would welcome the opportunity to assist you.

Wayne has helped me get through some pretty serious issues and I can say I'm in a much better mental state today than when I started.

Written by R.O. on Mar 05, 2018 after counseling with Wayne for 1 week on issues concerning relationship, self esteem, and career

Wayne has been a great help in discovering the right path to take and in sorting through relationships. I was given very good advice and encouragement. It's nice to have another opinion from a counselor that cares about the needs. After just a short time I feel I have been given the confidence and wisdom from this counseling to move forward with more clarity and certainty. Thanks again.

Wayne's insight is like a fatherly voice speaking sense and logic into my thought process, calming and steering me back onto track whenever my mind wanders.

Wayne takes the effort to understand my situation and provide priceless insight, no matter how long and complex the email I send him every couple of days, which I appreciate very much.

Thank you, Wayne!

I have only worked with Wayne for a couple of weeks, but so far it is going well. I get the impression he wants to not have a rushed process, which I appreciate.

Wayne Hill is an excellent councelor, who makes a great effort to also understand very complex situations. My feeling is that he also has a very good and strong intuition about people, which improves with every iteration and which leads to great personal advice. For me, the sessions with Wayne were very helpful to go through a more difficult time, and his advice was good to keep things still realistic and not too negative, but actually realizing the potential that there was. I want to thank him very much for this!

Written by P.A on Nov 02, 2016 after counseling with Wayne for 3 weeks

At the beginning I was very skeptical about BetterHelp, but Wayne has been extremely supportive, has provided very spot-on insights that I never realized myself and has given me very good advice on how to change myself. I believe that he is such a good counselor because he loves what he does and he genuinely cares about the people he works with
