About Hilary Boydston, PA-C

Hilary believes that mindcare is an underserved area of medicine that has the greatest potential to improve one’s general health and functionality. She entered the field of psychiatry after realizing how ubiquitous conditions like depression and anxiety are in society. As a provider, she knows that the people she works with come from all different walks of life, and that, therefore, management of mental health conditions needs to be individualized and cannot be handled in a “one-size-fits-all” manner./ She wants her patients to feel comfortable honestly sharing the myriad symptoms they may be struggling with so that she can work together with them to achieve remission of those symptoms./ Ms. Boydston is passionate about patient education; she has seen how patients’ understanding of what is going on within their minds is one of the best ways to foster good outcomes.

My care team is responsive and really does try to help me find solutions when things stop working or if I have an issue. Hilary is awesome to work with. She gives me options and we work through those to try new things. She explains things well and talks with me instead of at me . I definitely recommend her.

I really appreciate the feeling of not being judged or different with this provider and the staff. I really enjoy going to my appointment with Hilary Boydston every three months. I genuinely feel that she is concerned not just with my health on paper but my overall mental state and life. She seems genuinely happy for me and any/all successes. Small or large!
