If you are, a strong black woman, first-generation America, struggling with relationship, or seeking premarital/couples counseling, I would love to work with you! I am passionate about awakening the divine feminine strength and providing a space for women to embrace their inner truths unapologetically. I understand how sometimes we all need a gentle push in a certain direction. We will discuss underlying needs, repetitive cycles, and discover strengths for new life normals. Working with me will be a journey, full of self-exploration, self-talk, self-love, and self-truth.

Ancestral psychotherapy supports Black , Indigenous, People of Color, LGBTQIA+ to reconnect with their power, reimagine their sense of self worth, restore their ability to trust in their own inner wisdom and resource their ancestral resiliency.
Do you experience a constant and unyielding inner critic that points out every mistake and every flaw you have. Do you often feel like an imposter—not good enough and unqualified? Like you, my clients are people at the top of their class, leaders in their career, recognized creators, yet they feel unaccomplished and undeserving. They describe many moments feeling panicked and alone in their feelings. Their anxiety causes them to overextend themselves to get validation from others. They experience cycles of burnout and depression. They put their own needs last—every time. They find it hard to say no and practice healthy boundaries.

I am a woman of color, who identifies as (Mixed; Black and El Salvadorian), and am a proud ally of the LGBTQ+ community.
I believe every person is unique with skills and challenges that make them who they are. By highlighting strengths to improve identified challenges, we can work towards you becoming the ultimate person you desire. I work with youth, their families and individuals who would like to see themselves as their best self. My work extends to those who struggle with, or are a support to someone who struggles with, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and trauma disorders. I believe incorporating culture into my work, and continue to explore and learn from cultures other than my own in order to provide the best quality services to my clients.

As a Black woman who is often seen as "having it all together," it may be challenging to admit that you are having a difficult time. You may automatically say that you are "good" or "well" when people ask how you are doing but know deep down that this is a mask of how you are really feeling. Recognizing and admitting to yourself about the mask is the first courageous step to getting support. Even though many of us have been told to not let our guard down by showing others that we do not have it all together or that only "crazy" people who do not look like us go for therapy (not true!), you know what you need for yourself.

As a Black female, therapist, and mother, I am committed to serving our world while living a pleasure-filled life.
You are a thoughtful, professional, artist, who feels the gap between the life you created and the one you crave. Your drive has given you the career of your dreams, but now it feels in conflict with the partnerships, parenting, and home life you desire. The truth is, you are not "what you DO" to those who love you. You are "how you make them feel." By learning to trust and invest in the relationships around you, success in love and art can co-exist. I work with you to tame the anxiety, remove the falsehoods, and focus on clarity instead of chaos so you can have a life that truly brings you joy and belonging.

“We grow through what we have gone through” Let’s be honest, life is tough, especially when trying to maintain a work/life balance and forget all the pain we have experienced in the past. Black men and women have their own unique set of challenges, but one commonality is the societal pressures, the weight of expectations, and the layers of individual and generational traumas that leave us confused, hurt, scared, and seeking answers. Despite these feelings you are experiencing, always remember, you still have the ability to control your own path even when things appear out of control.

I have a considerable background working with the African American community & other communities of color, and the LGBTQ & non-binary communities.
Maybe you remember this scene from a movie; picture it, a peaceful airplane ride becomes turbulent. The plane begins losing altitude rapidly. The flight attendant urgently instructs you to "put your oxygen mask on first" before helping others. That simple, but critical statement, is just as important in our everyday lives. Remembering to take time to yourself, non selfishly, can be difficult for anyone who tends to place others' needs first. Together, we'll explore your thoughts, feelings, decisions, choices, wants, and needs in your therapy. I will assist you in" finding your voice" and help you to "put your oxygen mask on first.

I work with a diverse clientele, and specialize in providing social justice oriented psychotherapy to Black people and other POC, as well as members of LGBTQIA+ communities. I provide culturally responsive therapy, which focuses on the strengths that you already have. I tend to use a cognitive-behavioral theoretical approach (CBT), while also paying attention to your environment and access to social support. I work with you to build a safe space where you can share your experiences without the fear of being judged, and where you can focus on becoming clear about what you want, and how you want to go about making that happen.

Whether you searched “EMDR therapists near me”, “ Black therapists in Los Angeles”, or “therapists for professional women and people”, you’re probably in the right place.
Before we go any further, I want you to know that you are deserving of the person you’re trying to become. Got it? Cool. So here we go. I’m Dr. Hill and I’m here to heal (see what I did there?). I’m audacious, authentic, and unapologetic. I believe in boundaries, transparency, and owning your shit. If you broke the egg? You broke the egg and that's okay because healing isn't always bubble baths and yoga. Sometimes it's messy. If you’re looking to process the childhood you never recovered from, your mother’s inability to nurture you, or a toxic workplace environment? You've met your match!

The decision to start going to therapy is a powerful one that can be difficult for some to make. As a human that identifies as Black /Filipina, queer, millennial, and a survivor of childhood trauma, I know that decision isn't always easy. Therapy is the beginning of realizing the possibility of a more whole and fulfilled sense of self, and it is also the inception of achieving goals that can greatly improve your quality of life. That being said, making the decision to personally invest in an experience such as therapy is an important one!

My areas of focus include psychological assessment, counseling therapy with pediatric, adolescent and adult clients, and African American psychology for clients with autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, learning disabilities, blended families, and military or veteran related stressors.
Hi! In a world where so many of us regularly get the message that we are flawed, I think it is important to start by saying something that we might not hear so regularly, which is, that it is okay to be you. But if I’m being honest, being yourself is not always an easy thing to do. As a therapist, I place priority in creating a therapy environment where clients feel safe to share the most authentic versions of themselves without fear of judgement. In addition to a safe therapeutic space, my goal is to assist clients on their paths towards self-expression and self-acceptance no matter where they are in their journey.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in California, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in California listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
