Announcement icon Now conducting in person sessions at my Ferndale office. COVID-19 precautions followed.
My practice as a clinician is deeply embedded in a holistic approach that incorporates the mind, body, and soul. It is my philosophy that in order to achieve our greatest potential we must focus on strengthening the communication between each of these three elements to gain a greater understanding of the problem at hand. I encourage my therapeutic relationships to thrive on honesty, openness, and empathy so that I am able to help clients feel emotionally supported and heard during each session. Together, we will develop a unique approach that is tailored to your individual needs so that you are able to flourish during your journey.
Heather got her Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Michigan State University in 2017 and her Master's in Social Work from the University of Michigan in 2019; currently holds a limited license in Social Work, and specialty training in Addiction Counseling, CADC; as well as a certified yoga instructor specializing in mindfulness, breath-work & meditation.
