Hilary McCulloch, MACP, RP (Qualifying)
Hilary McCulloch is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). Hilary obtained her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University and attended Queen’s University where she earned her Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Biopsychology. As part of her Master’s degree, Hilary completed an educational practicum at Cambridge Memorial Hospital where she provided individual therapy to adult clients in the outpatient mental health clinic.
When meeting with her clients, Hilary prefers to utilize a range of therapeutic approaches that best meet the needs of each client as a unique individual. Some of the primary approaches that Hilary draws from include acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), person-centred therapy, compassion-focused therapy (CFT), mindfulness, and cognitive-based approaches. In addition to traditional therapeutic approaches, Hilary practices from an intersectional, anti-oppressive, and holistic lens to ensure that clients feel safe, respected, and understood.
Hilary has experience in working with individuals who present with trauma, anxiety, depression, self-harming behaviours, relationship problems, as well as general stress and difficult life transitions. Regardless of the presenting issues, Hilary’s primary goal in providing psychotherapy is to meet each client with warmth, empathy, and acceptance, while working collaboratively with them to highlight their strengths, accomplish their therapeutic goals, and encourage personal growth and self-reflection.
Hilary is passionate about the work that she does and she acknowledges the complexity of mental health and how the experience of it differs for each client. She aims to help clients discover their own strengths and resiliency, while compassionately supporting them in their mental health journey. Hilary is interested in supporting teens (16 and older) and adults while offering both evening and daytime appointments.
