Dr. Hill has worked in a wide variety of settings and in communities large and small. She received her Ph.D. in 1991 from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She has been with Child Psychiatry Associates for 14 years. She sometimes says she works with “ages 4 to 64”, but in truth she has worked with individuals and/or their families outside that range. As most therapist do, she works with people who have depression or anxiety. Her history of providing mental health services in rural communities required her to develop competence in treating a very wide range of problems and her intervention skills span the range of managing short-term crises to the treatment and support of individuals with chronic mental illness. Her area of expertise is Autism Spectrum Disorder and she has extensive experience working with dissociative problems. She works primarily with individuals and families. Her approach varies to fit not just the presenting problem, but to fit how the individual works best. She incorporates education about the individual’s disorder, skills development, and human development into the counseling process.
