About Our Therapists
Hilary Varner


My name is Hilary Keil-Varner. I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#112195) and an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor (#6377). I completed my Masters of Science Degree in Clinical Psychology at California State University, Fullerton in 2018. I completed my training at Straight Talk Counseling in Orange County, working with many types of populations and presenting concerns. I am now located at a private practice in Newport Beach, California and one in Tustin, California.

I have a background in conducting psychological research, and base my therapy practice on empirically validated forms of therapy. As your therapist, I will walk with you on your journey to support you, and help you to find the solutions you seek. Finally, I am an ethical, competent, professional and personable therapist who can be a helpful partner to you on your journey of growth and change. I will provide a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental environment for you to speak freely about your fears, desires, and emotions.


What To Expect

Please contact me for a free and brief consultation before your first in-person appointment. The consultation will consist of sharing with me the issues you are currently experiencing in order to determine if I am a good fit for you. It is during this consultation phone call that we will set up your first appointment.

At your first appointment, we will go over the rules and regulations of our counseling relationship. You will learn about your confidentiality, the limits of confidentiality, the boundaries of the therapeutic relationship, and your rights as a client. I will provide you with detailed information about my training and experience and give you the opportunity to ask questions. I will also go over my scheduling and financial policies with you. Finally, I will begin to collect a detailed history from you regarding your symptoms, family, relationships, and your present concerns.

Therapy will be weekly scheduled appointments. In some cases, bi-weekly appointments are recommended. I look forward to hearing from you and joining you on your healing journey.
