*Full currently! Are you an adult looking for objective perspectives to issues you are dealing with in your life? Perhaps you could benefit from self reflection and change? Want to be challenged in a gentle way to live up to your full potential? I use a variety of approaches to my counseling style as each individual has different needs and brings something unique to the counseling relationship. I offer a comfortable and safe, nonjudgmental environment. I believe correcting faulty thought patterns can be helpful for clients ruminating over negative or unrealistic thoughts or feelings, so cognitive behavioral techniques are used.
Having a better understanding of our pasts and healing old wounds can create a healthy self, so psychodynamic techniques are often used. Humor can be used sensitively at times which can be effective. As a trusting working relationship develops, I challenge clients to help them in areas where they may feel stuck and need a push to make positive change.
If looking for individual, daytime counseling and feel like I may be a good fit for your goals, feel free to start the process for your mental and emotional well-being by making that first appointment. I see many of the commercial insurances-please indicate in your email or call what you have along with availability. I look forward to working with you!

Heather is a wonderful therapist. I worked with some of her clients after she left a practice we worked at together and her clients had such amazing things to say about her. She is knowledgeable and has a very calming presence about her.
