Hilary Childers, Therapist
(MS, LPE-I, TF-CBT)
I am an Independently Licensed Psychological Examiner (03-06EI) providing mental health services to children, adolescents, and families at Chenal Family Therapy in West Little Rock and Conway. I received both my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Masters of Science in School Psychology at the University of Central Arkansas.
Children’s mental health is an essential part of their overall health. My passion lies in providing effective care to children, adolescents, and families in order to help them live happy and healthy lives. I have provided 15 years of mental health services which have included individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, crisis intervention, behavior management, parenting skills training, intensive family services, consultation, and psychological assessment. I have worked in a variety of settings including pediatric daycares, community mental health centers, human development centers, public schools, therapeutic group homes, acute/residential facilities, detention centers, and medical centers.
I provide a safe and supportive environment for my clients to express themselves, work through the difficulties they are experiencing, learn and practice coping skills, build confidence and self-esteem, and strengthen relationships. I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and currently working toward a certification in Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP). I also use a variety of other techniques to help clients (cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, person-centered, and therapeutic play). I have provided services to individuals experiencing challenges such as anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, grief, and behavior problems.
When not working, I enjoy volunteering at a therapeutic horseback riding facility in Greenbrier, AR.
