Hi, my name is Erika Hill, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia. I have ten years of experience in the mental health counseling field. I am well versed in working with children, adolescents, and adults. I am a doctoral candidate and graduate-level teaching assistant for Counselor Education and Supervision. I received my Master’s in School Counseling and a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Contemporary Mental Health Services.
I like to use a humanistic approach to help clients focus on the power that is already within them. I mostly use theories grounded in solution-focused brief therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, reality therapy, family systems, mindfulness-based intervention, and client-centered. I have worked in settings such as Middle and High School, College and Universities, Behavioral Residential Treatment Centers, and Private Practice. Working in those settings have heightened my experience in working with:
- At-risk youth
-Children with ADHD
-Families going through a divorce
-Life transitioning for young adults
-Understanding life after experiencing grief
You have taken a very positive step by deciding to seek therapy. The outcome of your treatment depends largely on your willingness to engage in this process, which may, at times, result in considerable discomfort. Remembering unpleasant events and becoming aware of feelings attached to those events may bring on intense feelings of anger, depression, anxiety, etc. I cannot promise that your behavior or circumstance will change. However, I can promise to support you and do my very best to understand you, any negative repeating patterns, and help you clarify what it is that you want for yourself.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Parenting issues
- Self esteem

Erika is not only extremely understanding and supportive, but she’s also invested in helping me through current issues and in my healing of past issues. At times, she has to speak hard truths, but she does it in a gentle manner. She will also laugh with me when needed or listen while I struggle to speak through tears. She’s a great cheerleader when I need it, too! I would highly recommend Erika. Several people in my life have commented on the difference it has made in my life by working with her.
