As the news surrounding COVID-19 evolves, the main priorities of Hillcrest Psychological Associates remain the same, to provide a space where our clients are supported on their journey to self-fulfillment and healthy relationships.


For the health & safety of our clients and staff, all psychotherapy sessions at will be held exclusively online through a HIPAA compliant telehealth or video session portal that is encrypted and secure, until further notice. We will be doing initial appointments via telehealth. We will move to face-to-face sessions when it is deemed safe.
