Therapist in Irving, Texas Veranda Hillard, LPC

Veranda Hillard, LPC

Veranda Hillard has worked in mental health for more than a decade. Since earning her Master of Science in Clinical Psychology in 2012, she has gained experience with psychological assessment, behavioral and social coaching, and a variety of therapeutic models, including cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, mindfulness-based, attachment-based, and somatic therapies. These experiences influenced her current client-centered, strengths-based, and trauma-informed approach to counseling.

Veranda celebrates the beautiful and unique diversity of humankind. She recognizes that society does not always share this viewpoint, however, and this drives many people towards self-abandonment — forgetting or doubting themselves due to shame, people-pleasing, emotional suppression, and relational trauma. Veranda acts as a gentle guide, supporting teens and adults in better understanding and remembering their authentic selves, unlearning harmful programming, restoring the connection between mind and body, and developing resiliency and self-determination. Veranda believes when people recover and honor their whole selves, they are best suited to contribute to a healing-centered, collective transformation of society.

As a natural advocate, Veranda aligns with those who may have experienced discrimination and/or systemic oppression. She most loves working with teens and adults who identify as persons of color, neurodivergent, and/or LGBTQIA+.
