Dr. Hill is a licensed psychologist in California and Texas, consultant, and curator of transformative spaces. She is a proud native of northern Louisiana and possesses an enduring love for assisting others, specifically Black women, in their journey of self-discovery and holistic growth.
Dr. Hill specializes in culturally sensitive and inclusive group work, individual therapy, curated conversations, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) consultation and transformative experiences. Dr. Hill’s work experience spans across contexts. It includes, but is not limited to, private practice, academia, hospitals, and the federal justice system.
Dr. Hill has facilitated individual and group therapy as well as workshops for Black women since 2017. As a Black woman, she not only utilizes her education and professional experience to serve her clients but also her own lived experiences. Her passion to empower and liberate Black women with diverse intersectional identities informs how she approaches her work; through a critical component that seeks to understand Black women in their cultural context and the challenges they face such as integrating their race, gender, and sexuality into an identity that is authentic and fulfilling, leading their families, and navigating unique challenges in the workplace. As their champion, Dr. Hill is committed to helping Black women cultivate new narratives, ways of being, and engagement that reflects their values and humanity.
Dr. Hill also specializes in sexual wellness for Black women and women of color. She is a provocateur of change who holds space for women to embrace their full sexuality, passion, and fierceness while shedding internalized messages that are oppressive and self-sacrificing. Dr. Hill’s philosophy is built on the notion that as individuals we do not exist in a vacuum. Therefore, she assists her clients in exploring the cultural, contextual, and systemic factors that may be restricting and limiting ultimately impacting their overall psychological health and well-being.
Dr. Hill is currently accepting new clients in Texas and California who are Black professional women experiencing challenges practicing vulnerability, navigating race related stress, boundary setting, relational and interpersonal challenges, grief, and role transitions.
