Hi, my name is Wayne Hill and Iâ€™m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have over 15 years experience in mental health and behavioral counseling. I specialize in working with individuals struggling with relationship problems, depression, anxiety, grief, social issues, and compulsive behaviors. My goal has always been to give hope to people who feel stuck, lost or overwhelmed. I have had the pleasure of assisting countless individuals, couples and families improve their self esteem, and positive self regard, leading to a more fulfilling life.
My counseling approach is to develop an empathic (understanding) non-threatening relationship with you. So, together we can identify the exact nature of your problem (s) and then, through cognitive behavioral and client centered techniques, develop the goals and objectives that will help you get your life back on track.
I have a Masters of Science degree in Psychology (Community Counseling)and a Bachelorâ€™s degree in Behavioral Science from 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 both inpatient and outpatient settings. I have taught in the public school system and I have worked with troubled youth in community based programs. I am also a U.S. Army veteran and welcome the opportunity to work with veterans as well as all others suffering from emotional, mental health, family or social issues.
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 work with you.

I have been attending counseling sessions with Wayne for six months now. He has really helped me go from being depressed and lost in my life, to a situation where I have not felt depressed in the past two months. Our sessions combine counseling and coaching, which the latter has helped me identify goals to focus on so I keep moving forward, which helps me not feel depressed and lost.
I am very grateful to Wayne for his help, understanding, experience, support, motivation, and challenge. I see our sessions as an investment in my life. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
Wayne is incredibly patient and does his best to understand your issues. He has a good sense of humor as well which makes it easier to open up about issues you're dealing with. And even if you don't have any issues, he'll often ask questions that make you look a bit deeper into yourself to find areas you can work on for self-improvement.
I highly recommend Wayne. He is knowledgeable, helpful & a great listener. He is gentle, yet direct in a compassionate way. His insights are invaluable.

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.

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!

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
