Hilary Henson, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles
I believe that you have a right to therapy that meets your needs, and works towards your goals. My job is to collaborate with you in whatever way is helpful. I am non-judgmental, and supportive, and will work with you to enlist your strengths and energies to bring about the changes you want in your life. If you are looking for an alternative to 12 step programs and abstinence for a substance problem, I can offer you the harm reduction approach which respects your intelligence and your ability to make choices.
I work with individuals and couples, children, adolescents, and their families. I offer play therapy for children. I have a particular interest in working with people struggling with issues of substance use. I also work with survivors of childhood abuse.
I am a supervisor of new therapists. I teach at Antioch University, Los Angeles. I am British in origin, and enjoy working with individuals dealing with a move to the strange world of Los Angeles.

Hilary Henson's Groups

Harm Reduction Group

A new way to take charge of your drinking and drug use. Do you want to change your substance use, but question the need for total abstinence for ever? Are you looking for an alternative to AA, or wanting to research all your options? The harm reduction approach respects your right to make the best choices for yourself. Join a group of like-minded others to explore how your substance use does and does not work for you, investigate ways to change your use to reduce problems and decide for yourself if you want to give up using or not.
