Hilary’s primary focus is on educating individuals and providing them with the most effective and advanced tools, techniques and therapies to meet their health goals and optimize their lives. Since the brain is the master organ and responsible for every action, emotion, memory and decision you make, if it’s not healthy, you’re not healthy.

At Duke University Medical Center, Hilary received her clinical and Biofeedback training in the Chronic Pain Clinic and decided to merge her training with brain wellness.
