Hilary’s blend of work in the health/wellness field and media has given her a chance to truly connect with people on a much deeper level. Through her own healing and use of the Havening Touch®, she has a deep understanding about why we need to “be kind to our mind”. She has a passion to guide others on their healing journeys towards finding the balance in living happier and healthier. Hilary considers it a gift to hold that space for healing and says it is often the place where the heart opens and allow the best and most beautiful part of ourselves to thrive.
In addition to being a certified Havening Techniques® practitioner, she is also a certified holistic health coach (Institute for Integrative Nutrition), has a MA in Psychology, is a university faculty advisor and volunteers with GallopNYC, a therapeutic horseback riding program for special needs children.
