Clinical Psychologist

Dr. Hilya has been working with children and adolescents in various capacities for over 20 years. She dedicated the first half of her career to working exclusively with children with neurodevelopmental disorders and was a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and Clinical Director for an ABA agency supporting and training clinical staff to provide naturalistic and play based behavior intervention. Over time, she pivoted from this role into full-time private practice where she adopts a much more relational approach that recognizes and values neurodivergence. Over time Dr. Hilya expanded her knowledge base and training to support individuals with anxiety, learning and processing differences, ADHD, and behavioral challenges. Whether through therapy or testing, Dr. Hilya's mission and passion is to collaboratively form an in-depth understanding of your child's social, emotional and learning needs. From this place of understanding it becomes possible to move towards creating meaningful changes and implementing supports to foster your child's growth and maximize his or her potential.

Dr. Hilya completed her bachelor’s degree at UCLA, received her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University, and received post-doctoral training in conducting psycho-educational evaluations. She is most proud of the two young daughters she has the joy and privilege of raising, and recognizes time and again how humbling parenting can be, even for a pediatric psychologist.
