Shala Hill


4 years of experience

My name is Shala, I'm an LPCC who works with clients from all walks of life to address some of today's most common concerns. I've worked with people in recovery, people coming out of the prison system, survivors of childhood trauma, people with personality disorders, and individuals questioning their identity and their spirituality. My passions are incorporating mind-body approaches to help you stay present in the moment, teaching skills that you can use in tough moments, offering education on communication and relationships, and incorporating spirituality into the counseling process.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I like to spend the first session getting to know my clients. We'll briefly look at your current situation, and the "big picture" of your life such as your family, close friends, practical concerns, hobbies/strengths, history, and the main concern that brings you to therapy. I'll never require clients to talk about something that they're not comfortable with, and it's important to me to meet clients where they're at in the process. Finally, we'll look at your symptoms and diagnoses (if applicable), and then we'll decide what kind of approach will work best for you.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My patience and compassion, willingness to provide education about a client's concern, and the range of techniques and coping skills that I offer.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

There are many things we can't control in life, but our thoughts and our actions are two things that we can gain control over. CBT offers many techniques to help you identify and change problematic thoughts and behaviors so you can live the life you want to lead.

Mind-body approach

I apply lots of breathwork, calming, and grounding skills to help you understand the relationship between your mind, body, and emotions.

Person-centered (Rogerian)

I bring the humanistic principles of genuineness, empathy, and unconditional positive regard to every session. I believe that each of us has a unique path and identity, and only you can truly know what that is.


Psychology shouldn't be a secret. I can provide a bit of education about your concerns, whether it is in the realm of human development, communication and relationships, diagnoses, or general functioning. It's important for you to understand how these things are playing out in your life.


In existential therapy, we'll explore some of the deeper questions in life, such as: "What do I want to do with my life?" "Who am I underneath it all?" "What do I believe happens after death?" "What's most important to me?" "How does my life fit into the 'grand scheme of things?'" and others. This is an exploratory approach that helps you gain a deeper understanding of yourself, your personal values and beliefs, and a greater sense of empowerment.
