Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Best of the Best!
I met Heather via my insurance during a deep depression. She was a blessing to me and saw me through the worst time in my life. Always empathetic and insightful. When my insurance changed I willingly paid out of pocket as I cannot imagine going to a different therapist. She is honest and reliable and saved my life. Her advice is always spot on and she has a vast experience level. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

The best therapist I have had by a lot!
Heather is kind, understanding, receptive, and insightful. She is a positive person. Her ability to empathize is a strong trait she possesses. This helps a lot when it comes to very vulnerable moments in therapy. I have never felt as comfortable with another therapist as I have with her. I consider myself a POC and an issue I often have with non-POC therapists is that they do not stay in their lane when comes to issues they may not be so experienced in. I have had terrible experiences with white therapists who were very dismissive of issues POC have had to deal with. Heather is the opposite, she will acknowledge the issues POC face and be honest about her lack of experience when it comes to these situations. She stays in her lane, and does research and offers solutions/ resources if that is ever the case. She has the drive to learn more about others experiences and it reflects in her work. I have never felt shamed by her. I have never felt like she was condescending. She is the best.

Heather is an exceptional therapist!
When I started seeing her, I was in a really dark place in my life . Now, looking back, it somehow seems like a lifetime ago. Her calm and consistent energy really helped me pull myself out of that dark place. She knew exactly how to make me feel comfortable and safe. That’s something I so desperately needed. Thanks to her, I have learned how to heal things that I didn’t know needed to be healed. My whole outlook on life has improved for the better. I will carry the tools she has given me for my whole life. I am forever grateful. Highly recommend her!

Above and beyond therapist
Heather is very on time and professional, she goes above and beyond every session. Very patient and understanding, I felt comfortable opening up a few sessions in. I’ve been seeing Heather for three years and my therapeutic relationship with her has only grown stronger and the progress I’ve made has been consistent thanks to her patience and realistic perspective.
