Professional statement

Dr. Hilary is a Clinical Psychologist in New York, NY who specializes in working with couples and individuals to realize their full potential. From Dr. Hilary’s perspective, people must be seen in context as a whole, integrated person who inherently exists in relationship to others. Working from a strengths-based perspective, she empowers individuals and couples to transform their lives through awareness of choice, helping to remove blinders and expand the range of options available to people who are looking to create a different reality for themselves and in their relationships.

She firmly believes that she can’t give you the answer, because you know what’s best for you. Rather, her goal is to guide couples and individuals in how to create their own solutions and construct the realities they have always desired (and deserve!) through honest dialogue and skills building.

In addition to her doctorate and masters degrees in Clinical Psychology, both granted by Yeshiva University, Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Dr. Hilary also received training through internship with The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, and as a Post-Doctoral Scholar in Clinical Psychology with UCLA’s ground-breaking program, Operation Mend.

In her training and private practice, Dr. Hilary has worked with a diverse population of people from all walks of life; artists, writers, musicians, veterans, college students—you name it! And she is eager to share her expertise to help you blossom into your favorite version of yourself!

She loves to travel, to learn about and explore the ever unique expanse of human minds, is bad at plants but good at animals, and gets cranky when her mindfulness meditation practice falls off.


Message to clients

Talking about one's most tender vulnerabilities is a challenge- especially with a stranger! But we are more than the sum of our least favorite parts, which is why I like to assess not just where things aren't working, but also your unique strengths, skills, and areas that are working very well to see what you already have that we can use to help you create the change you would like to see. The most mutative element of any therapy is a trusting relationship between therapist and client defined by trust, openness, good communication, and curiosity. With that in mind, I seek to create a relationship with each of my clients that is characterized by warmth, non-judgement, collaboration, and accountability. Feel free to check out my website for more about my approach as well as some free resources
