A. Nikki Hilton, PhD, LHSP
(865) 213-2751


At a young age, I knew that I loved listening to people’s stories. This started with my ability to get lost in books, TV shows, and films, and then led to studying theatre. Eventually, I realized how I could combine my passion for stories, the empathy I felt, and the joy I experienced from being a helper – by being a therapist.

As a therapist, I offer an authentic, non-judgmental space, filled with unconditional care and, I guarantee, laughter. I will work with you to establish goals, and, with patience, accomplish the change that you want in your life. I identify strongly as an ally and I have a special interest in codependency recovery; grief therapy, especially the loss of a parent or pet/animal family member; life transitions, such as adjusting to college, retirement, a new job, move, or relationship change; men’s issues; LGBTQ+; and the use of Cognitive Processing Therapy for trauma recovery.

When I’m not working with clients, I enjoy providing supervision to therapists-in-training or for licensure; walking and listening to audiobooks, just about any kind of music, and podcasts; ridiculously decorating my house for various holidays; spending time with my partner and 14-year-old Basset Hound; cooking; and binge-watching TV shows.
