ABOUT

Kheia Hilton M.A. LPC

Ms. Hilton is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Virginia, a Board Certified TeleMental Health provider (BC-TMH) and has been a mental health clinician for several years treating a wide range of symptoms.

Ms. Hilton has earned a B.A. in Sociology from Hampton University and an M.A. in Professional Counseling from Liberty University.

Ms. Hilton has spent several years helping people experiencing a wide range of mental health symptoms as an emergency services therapist. Though Ms. Hilton valued her work providing emergency mental health care in the public sector, she has dedicated her practice to helping people by giving them the tools they need for mental wellness before they are in a mental health crisis.  Ms. Hilton decided to follow her passion for preventative care and symptom management by helping young adults learn and apply the skills that will allow them to live the life they have always dreamed of. Ms. Hilton can help her clients achieve this by reducing the stress and anxiety that often robs clients of the freedom necessary to thrive in both their personal and professional lives.

 

Through her experience providing counseling services in a range of settings from emergency mental health to university counseling centers, Ms. Hilton fully understands many of the challenges people experience. These experiences have helped Ms. Hilton develop a unique counseling style which integrates skill building therapeutic techniques, self-exploration, and psycho-education into all services provided. This therapeutic style helps clients become knowledgeable about the symptoms they are experiencing and the form of treatment that will be used to garner the best possible results.

 

The decision to specialize in treating anxiety and stress management came easy, as many people express how their more significant mental health issues were triggered by the build-up of smaller stressors and life events that were not adequately addressed. In addition to treating stress and anxiety, we also treat depression with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and PTSD with Cognitive Processing Therapy. Christian counseling services are also available by client request only.

 

The unique experiences and pressures placed on young adults have led her right here for you! So why wait any longer? Send us a message and see how Ascension can help you reach new heights in your mental wellness.  Do not let fear and uncertainty continue to hold you down; let us help you break free and soar.

Stress is unavoidable and effects everyone. The key difference between those who appear to be able to thrive through stressful situations and those who seem to really struggle through it is how each person copes with stress.

 

People use many coping mechanisms in an attempt to manage stress but all coping skills are not healthy. It is important to evaluate both the short and long term effects of the coping skills used, to ensure they are having positive effects on their lives.
