Hilary Yurtin, M.S. is a Licensed Professional Counselor experienced in working with individuals, couples, families, and groups. Hilary graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2010 with a Masters degree in Counseling from Southern Methodist University where she received extensive training in marriage and family therapy, couples counseling, sex therapy, and career counseling.
Hilary has over 10 years of professional experience in the Dallas/ Collin County area, including experience in corporate settings. Observing and experiencing the lack of balance, self-care, and overall satisfaction that can exist as we struggle to occupy ALL of our different roles inspired her to become a helping professional.
Hilary works with her clients to increase positive coping strategies and promote self-care and resiliency. She relates to her clients by looking at the whole picture. Not just the past, but also the situation surrounding them now: home life, work environment, stress factors, and relationships.
The treatment Hilary provides is Cognitive Behavioral and Solution-Focused in nature. She strives to create a warm, yet goal-oriented environment for her clients geared towards creating and maintaining positive change. She understands that change can be difficult. She works collaboratively with her clients to create a program for change that moves at a manageable pace.
Hilary has developed programs and workshops for both individuals and organizations including the administrative staff of a nationally recognized professional sports organization, Fortune 50 Companies, and the staff of the local Non-profit Frisco Family Services.
In her consulting practice, Hilary has facilitated team building workshops. She also works with executives in a corporate setting to set and achieve goals for the improvement of Work/Life Satisfaction and to reduce the stress and guilt that often arise as we struggle to “be everyone and do everything” in our stressful lives.
