I have experience working with adults, adolescents, young children, couples, and families. I focus on a variety of areas including anxiety, PTSD, depression, grief, relationship issues, family conflict, parenting and anger management classes and more. For me, the main goal of counseling is for the client to discover what is important in their life as an individual and to focus on self-improvement.
I see the counseling process in which the client and I, the PLPC, will come to understand and trust one another. It is the goal of the counseling relationship to choose new behaviours to implement in your life that will create a positive change.

Are you struggling with relationships, anxiety, or depression? Has daily stress become so overwhelming that it interferes with work, school, or parenting? Is a painful or traumatic event surfacing as a loss of control, fear, and profound sadness? Left unchecked, these concerns can negatively impact our health and prevent us from experiencing a full range of emotions. I have seen the transformative power therapy has in the lives of individuals and families.

Has grief stolen your joy? Has trauma ripped the rug out from beneath you? Have you experienced an unexpected or sudden loss? If so, I’d bet you’re overwhelmed with how to find your footing in a world that doesn’t slow down. I’d also guess you’ve begun to distance yourself from friends and family because you feel misunderstood, and maybe even minimized, in how you're navigating the aftermath. The weight of grief and trauma can be paralyzing, causing us to disconnect from the support we need. I'm Heather, and I’d love to help shoulder some of that weight while we integrate the grief and trauma in a way that doesn’t feel so heavy.
