About Therapy

Welcome to Mountain Life Counseling & Coaching in Park City, UT. Mountain living offers us many wonderful benefits, including incredible outdoor opportunities for recreation, clean air, and small-town support and community.  Yet the stress of managing relationships, work, finances, and family obligations including raising self- sufficient kids can prove to be challenging no matter where we live. To maximize the benefits of mountain life and the opportunities available to us here in Summit County, it’s important to develop balance in an increasingly unbalanced world. As the founder of Mountain Life Counseling & Coaching, LLC I utilize current and brief evidence-based interventions to relieve symptoms, develop emotional intelligence and empower clients to reach their full potential. As a seasoned Therapist and Coach, I rely heavily on knowledge and experience to guide my interactions with adults experiencing the following: headshot2

  • Low self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Adjustment to a difficult life transition
  • Low mood and anxiety
  • High Stress
  • Relationship problems
  • Desire for goal-setting
  • Parenting



Research shows that the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important indicators for successful treatment outcomes. The right fit is very important and it can take time to find a therapist that works best with your personality and style. In other words, if you don’t feel some sense of connection with your therapist, you cannot build the kind of trust and respect that is essential for movement through barriers towards lasting change. I work together with my clients to promote healthy growth and increased wellness through a collaborative, strength-based and flexible approach.

I look forward to working with you.

Warmly, Hillary Poor
