Sierra Hillebrand, MA, TLLP
Master of Arts, Clinical and Humanistic Psychology, Center for Humanistic Studies (now Michigan School for Professional Psychology)
Ph.D. Candidate, Clinical Psychology, Pacifica Graduate Institute
Sierra’s work at Hygeia Center for Healing Arts draws on over 15 years of professional experience supporting individuals and families in their efforts to live healthy, joyful, and fulfilling lives.
In 1997, Sierra began working as a midwife, doula, and childbirth educator. She co-founded Trillium Birth Services in 2001.
Inspired by the inner transformation that she witnessed in her midwifery clients, Sierra began her studies in Clinical Psychology in 2005, earning her Master’s Degree from the Center for Humanistic Studies. She then went on to pursue doctoral studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute, completing her coursework in 2009. Sierra’s clinical training has emphasized developmental psychology, attachment theory, dream work, and mindfulness-based approaches to emotional wellbeing.
Sierra’s clinical work is grounded in a profound respect for the innate wellness and healing capacity of each individual, regardless of the challenges or concerns they face. Sierra believes that the client-therapist relationship is a foundation of trust that allows a client to feel safe enough to explore and resolve the feelings that are the hardest to face in everyday life. What clients can expect from her is an attitude of acceptance, respect, and compassion.
