Hilary (she/her) is a Speech-Language Pathologist helping diverse people of all ages, genders, and identities use their voices to express themselves with greater authenticity, clarity, ease, and confidence.
Certified by the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA), and licensed in CT and NY, Hilary holds a BA from Harvard and MS from Southern CT State University. She is certified in Lee Silverman Voice Technique (LSVT), and has trained in voice and acting at the Linklater Center for Voice and Language, and Kimball Studio in NYC. Hilary has worked as a speech pathologist in hospital, rehabilitation, skilled nursing, home health, and school settings, including Gaylord Hospital, Backus Hospital, Apple Rehab, Kindred at Home, VNA Community Healthcare, and Hartford Public Schools.
Now in private practice Hilary enjoys using her training in voice to help others find theirs. She uses a whole-person, team approach in which she values the importance of networking with her patient's healthcare team in order to provide thorough and comprehensive treatment. She treats speech, language, and cognitive impairment for those affected by neurological conditions such as stroke (CVA), Parkinson's, and traumatic brain injury (TBI). She also works with school-aged children whose speech and language skills are newly developing. She works with trans and gender nonconforming individuals to help find and create the voice that best represents who they are. And through her experience in theater, she assists actors and professional voice users with voice projection, accent/dialect modification, articulation, and ahealthy pattern of vocal use that conveys emotional depth and range. Hilary also treats voice injuries to heal, restore, and create healthy patterns of vocal use.
A long-time student and practitioner of meditation and former teacher of Hatha yoga, Hilary incorporates mindfulness practices into her healing work. All of her passions combined have equipped her with a broad array of tools to help creatively access, open, and free one's authentic channel of communication with gentleness, patience, and compassion.
