Hilary is registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. She has expertise in anxiety, depression, work stress & work/life balance, eating disorders (particular emphasis on over-eating/binge eating) self esteem issues, borderline personality disorder, and trauma recovery.
Hilary's approach to therapy is eclectic & client centred. She believes that every client is unique, and suits her counselling style & techniques to clients' individual needs. She draws on cognitive behavioural (CBT), dialectical behavioural (DBT) solution focussed, strength based, & psychodynamic therapeutic models, among others. She also offers accelerated resolution therapy (ART) which is a therapy that uses bilateral stimulation & image replacement to resolve trauma, anxiety, & other issues that tend to be stored in the body, or in images in the mind, & do not lend themselves well to talk therapy.
