Professional statement

Dr. Hillery Keith is a psychologist in Houston, Texas. She has been in private practice for over 25 years and she also teaches and supervises other clinicians in training. Her practice is inclusive, positive and supportive of the value and beauty of diversity for all people.

Hillery uses a personalized, supportive approach rooted in our social connection to others. Her work offers her clients the opportunity to explore their overall wellbeing and learn how experiences that have happened in the recent or historical past may have played a part in developing a story that is incomplete or even painful. Hillery supports her clients in making gentle changes in behavior, thoughts and feelings. The work of healing could include talking, writing, breathing and emotional/physical awareness.

Hillery specializes in working with people whose lives are just not where they want them to be. They are trying hard, but perhaps anxious thoughts or sadness get in the way of relating to others or reaching their goals. Hillery has worked with both adults and teens who have suffered trauma ranging from general family or relational dysfunction to physical and sexual violence. She also works with teens, and adults across the age spectrum, who are experiencing the stress of life transitions.

She practices near West University/Greenway Plaza and offers individual, couple and group counseling.

Message to clients

When you are in pain or confused, it's not always easy to know where to go or with whom to talk. Therapy offers you a safe and confidential space to tell your story and explore that story's effect on your life right now. With support and feedback, I offer my clients an opportunity to feel more at peace with who they are and to make new decisions about themselves. You may even feel ready to try new behaviors and change the story of your life.

I tend to be informal and interactive and am focused on your goals for therapy. The most important aspect of the therapeutic experience is developing a relationship with someone you can trust. As a result, I try to keep it simple and work with the concerns that you want to address.

I am available to meet in person or via Tele-health video as well as secure electronic registration and payment. Our office follows Covid-19 protocols that allow for social distancing, hand washing and mask wearing.
