Hilary Green, Registered Psychologist

I work with both adults and couples, including first responders, military members, veterans, and people of all gender and sexual identities. I help people facing challenges related to posttraumatic stress and trauma, grief and loss, mood and anxiety, navigating interpersonal relationships, life changes and transitions, stress management and burnout – and other areas within yourself, your relationship(s), or your life that you feel most affected.

The foundation for this work is a strong therapeutic relationship in which you feel seen, understood, accepted, supported, and empowered. My approach is collaborative so that your unique goals, values, and needs are integrated into the therapeutic process. I take an attachment and trauma-informed approach to therapy, viewing each person and their presenting concerns within a larger generational, systemic, and sociocultural context.

I have extensive training in and integrate several evidence-based therapies, including Emotionally-Focused Couples and Individual Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I am dedicated to ongoing learning and keeping my clinical skills up-to-date through training, consultation, and supervision.

I am originally from Ontario but now call Nova Scotia home. I hold an Honours Bachelor of Arts with Specialization in Psychology degree from the University of Ottawa (2010), as well as a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology degree from Acadia University (2013). I have experience working in hospital, crisis intervention, university, and private practice mental health settings. I am committed to creating a safe space for people of different gender identities, sexual orientations, romantic/sexual partnerships, communities, and cultures.

“Wholeheartedness. There are many tenets of Wholeheartedness, but at its very core is vulnerability and worthiness; facing uncertainty, exposure, and emotional risks, and knowing that I am enough.”
