My husband and I cannot thank Heather enough for the help she gave us in finding a treatment center for our daughter. She spent at least half a day with us and our daughter was able to get the help she needs to learn to manage bipolar disorder in sobriety. Sylvia R Bellingham, WA

My husband and I had already started divorce proceedings last year when we decided to give counseling a try. Heather had a lot of patience with us as we worked through anger, resentments and a lot of frustration. She worked with us to learn new communication techniques that finally helped us work through diificult issues that had been festering. Its not all rainbows and sunshine but we realize that together we're a great team. We'd forgotten how to love without fear. Jenna & Paul G Anacortes

I really took a lot from the Breakthrough program and a few individual sessions with Heather really helped me dive a little deeper into past trauma. The work on transitioning from an inner critic to listening to an inner coach has made a huge difference in how I feel about mysef and achieving my goals. Thank You! Sandra Beardon, Oak Harbor, WA

As this course of Breakthrough ends I cannot say enough about your encouragement and…yes humor! Tackling depression and weight loss has been a decade long struggle and I appreciate your dedication to mentall and physical health. Understanding how I ate my inner critic helps me look at food and realize “I may want it…but I don’t need it”. That you chose this path to overcome the grief of losing your family is truly a gift to those of us who need extra encouragement. Brittani Mason, Oak Harbor

For nearly two years Heather has been here for our family as we dealt with a difficult deployment, difficulties with 2 children diagnosed with autism and the untimely the death of my father. We;re getting ready to move back to South Carolina and I cannot express how supportive Heather has been. Even when she had to be gone she answered calls and emails helping us with IEP transitions and continued coverage. Thank You!!! from the bottom of my heart, Linda Sams, Mt Vernon WA

I was really unhappy with my care as the therapist talked about herself most of the time and repeatedly told the same stories over and over and they weren’t all that helpful. Also, she likes to take a lot of six week vacations without much prior notice leaving me with no care unexpectedly. I’m currently seeking other care.

I rarely do on-line reviews but the last 9 months with Heather has been more than I ever expected. She is empathetic, compassionate and insightful. I never had homework before in therapy and or specific goals but that was a big part of recovering my sense of self and my strengths. She has a great sense of humor and I appreciate everything she did to ensure I will be able to continue feeling good and sticking to a healthy lifestyrle.

I feel so fortunate that Heather was willing to work with our 15-year old son in recovery from crisis. She was understanding, emathetic and went the extra mile to ensure we got all the services that helped support his recovery. Thank You so much for making 2018 a great year for us.

Nothing could have helped me get back on track better than the Breakthrough program and Heather's approach to recovery from depression, mid age blues and a decade of weight gain. If you've been wondering whether its time to get help...dont wait as long as I did. Im not done losing weight but I am done gaining it. The staff is great on the front end and they made a big difference too. Topher Mt Vernon, WA

If you are looking for someone who will give you a no- BS treatment and get straight to the source of whatever issues you are dealing with, Heather is your girl! I really enjoyed that she shared her experiences which made me feel more comfortable to discuss very deep routed issues. I took away from each session a new tool to apply to my relationships with my family and just life in general. Do yourself a favor and go see Heather!

Ms. Hamiton listens carefully, cutting through the junk to get to the actual issues. She calls on rich life and extensive professional experiences to guide the client to the next steps. Heather is sensitive and responsive; caring enough to tell the truth without sugar-coating it. She offers honest reality-checks, responding with what you NEED to hear, which may not be what you WANT to hear. Heather will help you be proactive and make the tough decisions that will put your life back on track.

I feel so fortunate to have been able to see Heather Hamilton and work through the BreakThrough! program. The patient workbook was challenging but its helped me to work through a lot more than depression. Unlike therapy in the past I felt like there was a plan, there were goals and solutions. She is warm and humorous in her approach but at the same time she pretty quickly got to the stuff that has kept me stuck for too long, Her time was my greatest gift of 2017.

I started counseling before my husband Ryan deployed for 9 months. She was able to help me get on solid ground and I learned a lot of communication skills and ways to avoid or recover from conflict. I had a lot of insecurities from past relationships that ended badly. Now I get that some worry is healthy but I feel so much better about myself that I don't get stuck anymore. My marriage is a lot better and I am a lot more balanced . I like the new offices!

I loved every session with Heather. She helped me work through huge social anxiety and feel comfortable with who I am. I stopped beating myself up and feeling as though I wasn't "enough", or pretty enough when my boyfriend broke up with me. There were times I really needed to talk to someone after my Mom passed away and she always returned my calls. I can't say enough about how much better I am doing now.

I am grateful for the opportunity my family and I had to work through difficult issues with Heather. She helped me recover from deep depression, and recover my sense of self. I had withdrawn from life and as we worked through grief, losses and some past issues, I was able to be the Mom I wanted to be. Sue E H

We went in so hopeful, to our disappointment that wasn't what we got. 3 visits with my husband/me 20 minute meeting with my daughter she decided she knew all about her. We were told she was a sociopath who needed to be hospitalized immediately and she would turn us into CPS if we didn't do so. Thank god we went Heather's mentor and got actual help, real diagnoses and now she is very sucessful in school and life with the correct diagnosis of anxiety, OCD and neurosensory disorder.
