Hillary Metz
Alternative and Complementary Health, Counselor

Hillary brings intimate and unique insights to clients as she has experienced The Sanctuary program as a client working through her own addictions, and later, as on-campus staff and an energy medicine practitioner. She began studying energy medicine in 2008 and is a graduate of the Four Winds Society’s Light Body School.

Hillary is an Associate Certified Coach through the International Coach Federation. She practices ontological coaching which focuses on supporting clients in creating new ways of being with themselves, others, and the world while achieving their goals and dreams.

Hillary facilitates individual sessions and a weekly group at The Sanctuary. As our Transition Wellness Coach, she supports clients in continuing to integrate and expand upon the work they accomplished for 60 days after completing their in-residence program
