Introduce yourself to our readers:
My name is Dr. Tequilla Hill Hales and I'm a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist & owner of Hill Psychotherapeutic Services, LLC. The central goal of my work is to help people create emotional wellness and healthy relationships within their lives.
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest?
Upon entering college I realized how much I enjoyed learning about people through my social sciences courses. Volunteering at shelters, working with children, and doing crisis work deepened my passion for the helping professions.
What advice would you share with those interested in a similar pursuit?
If you desire to work with people from a systemic, collaborative and strength based way, it behooves you to seek out a COAMFTE accredited program to obtain the appropriate educational training.
Discuss a professional challenge and how you overcame it:
Learning how to let go of multitasking and fully embrace montasking. Monotasking is simply paying attention to, and completing, one task at a time. I find that I can do more creative work when operating in this way. I’ve learned to be flexible about how I do things but not why I do things.
What is next for your brand/business in 2017?
This year I will be offering Dating coaching to Singles. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have taken my clinical expertise to create an interactive and solution focused approach to dating.
