George Andrew Hillis, MRC, LPC-Intern

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern, with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Political Science from Texas Christian University and a Masters of Rehabilitation Counseling from The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center-Southwestern School of Health Professions. My previous clinical experiences include internships at UTSW Zale Lipshy University Hospital and UTSW University Rehabilitation Services and research at The University of Texas at Dallas-Center for BrainHealth.

Through counseling that is goal-oriented and based on a collaborative client-counselor relationship, I seek to address and treat the ongoing challenges posed by anxiety, ADHD, depression, social disorders, stress management, and other difficulties that an individual can be experiencing. With the focus placed on the specific needs of clients, I am dedicated to providing a superior standard of care that enhances the quality of life for not only each person I work with, but also their loved ones.

Services Provided: Individual and group therapy
