I am a highly qualified Licensed Clinical Social Worker [LCSW] with over 25 years of experience dealing with diverse populations of clients that include working with individuals, couples, families, young children, and adolescents. I hold a doctoral degree from Indiana University, 2008, and I received a Master’s degree in Social Work from Case Western Reserve University in 1982. My career involves organizational management, clinical supervision, and extensive experience with completing psychosocial assessments, treatment planning, and collaborating with multidisciplinary teams. I have proven success with engaging clients by empowering them to make positive changes in their lives. I do not view people as fundamentally flawed. I believe people know themselves better than experts in the helping professions. My approach to therapy is based on guiding my clients to work along with me to resolve their identified issues in treatment. When dealing with faith-based issues, I combine theology and spirituality for the benefit of my clients. It is imperative for me to understand clients' spiritual beliefs, without imposing my religious beliefs and values on them. A relationship with a therapist is one of the most intimate bonds a person can have in life. Who do you trust with your most private and vulnerable experiences? This is the reason why I take the time to build trust and rapport with my clients. Building trust is a critical part of achieving success in therapy. I am compassionate with strong communication, and interpersonal skills.

Dr. Hill has been the perfect match for this season of my life. It's easy to be very open and honest with her with no shame of experiencing a temporary mental challenge in life. Her response is very straightforward and encouraging which is what I needed during this time of transition.
