A Message from Heather

As part of the human experience, we sometimes encounter events and stressors that require extra support. My goal as a counselor is to hold a consideration for how someone developed their understanding and perspective of the world while focusing on its impact now and how we can create more positive alternatives.

Throughout my professional career I have gained work experience with diverse demographics of age, diagnosis, symptoms severity, ethnicity and race. However, I am dedicated to continued education in order to provide the best support and most beneficial treatments to the individuals I treat.
