Lilian Hobbs, LMSW
Lily works with clients of all ages, and especially enjoys working with children and adolescents to help them address concerns related to anxiety, depression, and big life changes. She completed her final internship as a Behavioral Health Consultant for Tiger Pediatrics, where she worked with children and their families to provide mental health interventions for a variety of areas including depression, social anxiety, adjustments at school and home, and behavioral concerns. Because of her background in integrated health care at both the IBHC and Tiger Pediatrics, Lily takes a multi-faceted approach to mental health, and works with her clients to examine all areas of their life that have an impact on their mental well-being.
Before pursuing a Masters of Social Work, Lily worked as a paraprofessional with the public school system helping children with developmental disabilities adapt to the classroom setting and build communication skills and social connections with peers. She is passionate about helping kids feel more comfortable and confident expressing themselves both at home and at school.
Lily believes everyone should have access to a therapist who supports their unique identities and helps them feel safe, accepted, and understood. She takes a client-centered approach to therapy, focusing on client strengths and insight to guide her practice. She has knowledge of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI), and utilizes an array of evidence-based techniques to help her clients develop new strategies to cope with whatever challenges they are facing. Lily hopes to become certified in TF-CBT in order to help children and adolescents impacted by trauma. Finding a therapist can be an intimidating and anxiety-provoking process, and Lily hopes she can help make the process a little less scary for you.
