Sometimes? Getting your shit together requires a level of honesty that takes many of us years to find.
If you’re here reading this? You’re probably on the right path.
If that’s the case? I’m elated we’ve found each other!
If not? Let’s see if we can get there together.
My name is Dr. Chyna Hill and I am an Associate Clinical Social Worker at Thrive Psychology Group, a private practice in Los Angeles that primarily focuses on serving the needs of professional women.
Although I’ve earned the academic title of Dr., I prefer Chyna. I’m the daughter of a single mother, the granddaughter of a single mother, and the great-granddaughter of sharecroppers.
I think sweet tea and water are interchangeable. Publix is superior to any grocery store in existence. I can talk to you about machine learning and programming algorithms, but I can also recite all the words to Bodak Yellow and Girls in the Hood. I read stats manuals for fun. I’m an anime enthusiast. I love my dogs like I birthed them. Kobe surpassed Jordan, Octavia Butler will never have an equal, and it’s Gryffindor until my dying breath.
I’m a Social Worker. I’m a Researcher. I’m a Project Manager. In fact? I’m a lot of things to a lot of people. But I’m also very human.
Interesting right? Keep reading! It gets better.
Very early, I developed a keen understanding of the magic possessed by Black women and other women of color. However, it wasn't until I became one of these women that I understood the superhuman existences that some of us live. Lifting while we're drowning. Persevering when we're depleted. Laughing when we're numb. Somewhere along the way, we learned to admire overexertion… learned to aspire to overexertion. We learned we couldn't break. We learned we weren't allowed to break. This is the Black womanhood I've admired, the Black womanhood that was stressed to me, and this is still the Black womanhood that so many of us aspire to.
Here’s the thing. WE bruise too. & That’s where I come in.
While I enjoy working with ALL clients, my expertise tends to attract:
Black women and WOC battling debilitating anxiety but dare to exist anyway.
Black women and WOC who for the first time feel safe enough to speak to their traumas
Black women and WOC who can’t afford to respond to people or situations in the way they used to.
Black women & WOC who are introverted af but navigate extroverted systems every day.
Black women & WOC forced to live fragmented lives, and navigate imposter syndrome and systemic oppression
Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Problem Solving Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy, I help Black women & Women of Color move THROUGH their anxiety and trauma.
If we sound like a match rooted in reality? Shoot me an email or head over to my website, where you can book a free 30-minute consultation. I can’t wait to hear what you have to say!
Black girl magic today. Black girl magic tomorrow. Black girl magic always.
