Providing You With the Tools to Access Peace of Mind

Are troubling events from your past interfering with your present? 

Trauma and anxiety can make you feel stuck in a web of dread and overwhelm. 

Have you experienced…?

  • Persistent worrying
  • Troubling memories that keep coming up
  • Nightmares
  • Panic attacks
  • Constantly feeling on alert
  • Shame and guilt over the past
  • Racing thoughts
  • Relationship problems
  • Struggles with working

You’ve tried dealing with this on your own, but it is still getting in your way.

Imagine what it would be like if:

… trauma and anxiety no longer dictated your choices 

…you had the tools to handle it

… you could wake feeling rested and content

… you could be confident and hopeful

1. Get Your Free Phone Consultation

During this 20-minute call, we will:

  • Talk about what you want to accomplish
  • Answer your questions
  • Determine if I’m a good fit for you
  • Get you scheduled for your first appointment

2. Attend Sessions

I am in Wilmington, NC, and all sessions are conducted using a secure video conferencing system specifically designed for medical practices. This means that, as long as you are in the state of North Carolina, I can see you even if you are out of town. You will miss fewer appointments due to work, childcare, etc. which allows you the consistency necessary for progress.

3. Accomplish Your Goals

In our first meeting, we will discuss your goals in more detail. After the first meeting:

  • You will learn strategies to reach your goals
  • You will put these into practice outside of sessions
  • I’ll guide you with the goal of you doing it independently

When you have accomplished your goals, you’ll be able to take the progress and skills with you!

Lillian Hood, LPA

Danson Counseling & Assessment Services began in 2013 and is a solo practice where all services are provided by me, Lillian Hood, a psychologist in North Carolina. I started this company because I wanted a better way to help people.


I’m always looking for ways to be more effective and to help my patients have the best chance of success. I have found that because of work schedules, child care, chronic illness, disability, and other reasons, people have a hard time getting to an office appointment.
