Mrs. Hilary Akman

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, LMHC, LPC


Focus on the Family's Christian Counselors Network

Hilary has been a psychotherapist for 20 years and a Jesus follower for 27 years! She is also a trained Parent Coach helping parents to connect more deeply to their children. Recognizing that pain and suffering are part of the human condition, Hilary seeks to utilize spiritual healing as the foundation for emotional, mental , and psychological integration. She helps people break free from old school legalism that cripples their growth in Christ while embracing all that God desires them to be. Her clinical focus is on anxiety, with a specialty in social anxiety and panic disorder as well as depression and bipolar disorders. She works with adolescents, parents, and adults. She graduated from Eastern University with a Master's Degree in Counseling in 1999. She completed post graduate work at Villanova University. She worked in Community Mental Health as a Senior Clinician before starting her own private practice in 2004. She is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida and a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of New Jersey. She provides in person counseling appointments at The Local Church in Davie, FL. She also provides online counseling sessions.

Through a mindfulness cognitive-behavioral approach Hilary partners with her clients to reveal beliefs that drive thoughts, feelings, and behavior. While awareness and insight are critical to change, Hilary recognizes it is not sufficient to create the lasting, transformative shifts her clients seek. Hilary taps into client’s strengths and to develop individualized strategies and solutions they can implement once the session ends. She believes that the power of God and the therapeutic relationship, are the conduit through which meaningful change can occur.

Hilary is a Florida native and has been married since 2004. She has felt called to homeschool their two children for the past 6 years and hasn't looked back.
