Counseling with Hilary
Hilary Yurtin, M.S. is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. She has over 10 years of professional experience in the DFW area, including corporate experience.
She loves her work as a therapist and enjoys collaborating with her clients to uncover their goals for happiness, balance, and satisfaction in their lives. This is not just someone telling you what to do. This is an opportunity to share your experiences, worries, stressors, and dreams with a professional counselor who can remain objective and non-judgmental while helping you sort out your goals. After deciding what you want to achieve, Hilary will help you develop an action plan to reach those goals.
The psychological approach will be theory based (CBT, Mindfulness, Goal Oriented), but really it’s just talking, listening, and a little education. Hilary tailors her approach to counseling based on the needs and goals of each client. It’s okay to be serious and then not so serious… Laughter is indeed a healing medicine.
Hilary is a therapist in Frisco, TX who specializes in the treatment of Anxiety and Depression, Couples & Family Counseling, Individual Counseling for adults and older adolescents, Coaching for Improved Lifestyle and Career, Sex Therapy, Stress Management, and Women’s Wellness (confidence, body image, hormonal issues, infertility, pregnancy, and postpartum)
Hilary meets with many first-time counseling clients in Frisco who have questions and express hesitation or doubt about what therapy is…
Do I have to lay on the couch?
No, but you can if you want. Sit straight up, lay on the floor… Be comfortable!
Is what we say private?
Yes, with a few legal exceptions that we will discuss during your first session.
Don’t only crazy people need counseling?
Absolutely not!! What is crazy, anyway? Hilary believes that everyone hits tough spots in life that need a little smoothing out. Releasing those negative experiences, thoughts, and emotions into the open with a trained counselor can be relieving and an amazing process of self-discovery and growth. Think of it like a deep tissue massage for your brain and your soul. Can be a bit painful at times, but overall it’s good for you to release the tension.
Will you think I’m crazy or make me take medication?
Again, what’s crazy? What’s normal? Your personal goals are all that matters. Health will, and should, look different for you than it does for others! A consult with a psychiatrist for medication may be recommended as part of a treatment plan, but not forced.
What will a therapist be able to tell me about my life and my relationships that I don’t already know?
Very little. That’s not the point. You are already as strong and as capable as you need to be, although it may not feel like that right now… It’s easy to be blinded by the fog and the excuses of our own stories. You may not have discovered the path to your own strength yet. You may need to tell your story from a different point of view. Working with a counselor can inspire you to uncover your healthiest self and help you feel like You again!
Will what I say be the craziest thing you’ve ever heard before?
Counseling doesn’t have to be scary or embarrassing. In her Frisco, Texas therapy practice, Hilary will work with you at your own pace to develop a plan of action to help you accomplish your goals for increased happiness and well-being.
