What is The Hillsman Center for Wellness, LLC?

How We Help

This Mental Health Support Group was started with the belief that every single one of us is resilient, and that our resilience can be fostered with the help and support of a community. Our members provide the place and space for personal growth, self-reflection, learning, and bonding. We invite you to find out more information and hope you will join us.

What We Offer

Several Options

African American Women Grief groups

Every grieving experience is different. A person may be able to continue their day-to-day routine after one loss, yet not be able to get out of bed after the loss of someone else. Grief and bereavement groups have been proven to help whatever your symptoms are.

If you are experiencing grief-related thoughts, behaviors, or feelings that are distressing, please get in touch with me today for a free consultation.

Serious Look

Depression Group for African American Men

African American men do not usually look for groups, counselors, and the medical community to help them with their bio-psycho-social concerns. If they do or be encouraged to do so, they become vulnerable to many dynamics against them. As a previous researcher on this topic, I had an opportunity to work with African American Males in the southeastern states to discuss depression. I was able to complete my dissertation on this subject matter. So, I want to continue the conversation and offer groups to these men to help empower them in their lives and help them to discuss depression to allow them to begin the healing process. Depression in men is 9 percent (2010-13).

This group will be interactive, focusing on everyone’s narratives about depression and how they define it.

It will explore their coping, and education will be provided on new coping methods to help them obtain new roles in their lives.

This group is about learning from one another and how they managed their depression and insight to help their brother.

This group will provide a safe space for all.

 Our only goal at The Hillsman Center for Wellness, LLC is to make you feel safe and supported, so don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Anger Management

When you’re angry, do you start name-calling? Do you get angry when someone wants you to open up and share your feelings? Do you lack patience? Are your family members or kids afraid to talk to you?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, it may be time to consider anger management therapy.

Anger Management has proven to be effective for the following types of individuals:

  • Violent offenders

  • Bullying behaviors

  • Traumatic brain injury

  • Behavioral changes associated with posttraumatic stress

  • People experiencing substance dependency or undergoing recovery

  • People with cognitive or mental health issues that make it difficult to control anger

Anger issues aren’t uncommon and the first step towards change is an admittance of the problem. Learning to stop isn’t as simple as some may think, but together we can come up with a game plan tailored exclusively to you.

If you or someone you know is experiencing anger management issues, contact me today for a free consultation.
