    Finding Heather has changed the trajectory of my life. I wish I could share her services with all my friends/loved ones. She’s top notch- you can see by other reviews that anyone who’s been a client of hers would agree. I’ve waited most of my life for a therapist as skilled as she is.

    I have been under Heather’s care since 2013. She has guided me through many life obstacles, including interpersonal relationships, career, depression, family, spousal, regret, fertility, pregnancy, personal boundaries, and most importantly communication. With Heather’s help, I am a better wife, mom, manager and overall human being. I have learned to appreciate and respect myself to a fulfilling level, and am proud to have become a powerful, successful woman. Self improvement takes time and effort, and Heather’s tools and guidance lead to peace, well -being and quality of life. Heather’s quick wit, compassion, sense of humor and repertoire of suggestions make the sessions enjoyable.

    If you’re looking for unicorns and rainbows you should probably keep going, but if you’re interested in real growth and change, and willing to put in the effort it takes to get there, you’ve definitely come to the right place. Heather creates a space that invites, expects, and is designed for frank, probing, and revealing dialogue. It’s a safe space where I found I could express myself honestly, get to understand my true feelings, and come to understand how past traumas created very unhealthy coping mechanisms.

    Heather is an authentic, compassionate and insightful therapist - she truly helped me gain insight into ways that I had been ‘getting in my own way’. Not only is she knowledgeable, but also warm and compassionate in her approach. I can’t recommend her highly enough!

    Heather is great at not only helping with immediate issues but will also address the underlying reasons as to how/why we got there. We sought marriage counseling to improve our relationship issues but came out of it with so much more. My wife and myself would highly recommend her if your looking for sustainable change.

    My experience with Heather was nothing short of profoundly transformative. Heather helped me face and grapple with many issues that I have been dealing with for years, and also helped me look at them from a different and more helpful perspective. I left every appointment feeling refreshed, challenged and validated. I felt comfortable sharing things with her that I normally wouldn't tell even some of my close friends, and knew that she was never judging me but always trying to help me.

    If you are looking for counsel on personal/family issues, Heather is a top choice provider. She is a great listener, easy to talk to, and has consistently provided direct, practical, and effective advice. Her guidance has helped me manage obstacles in complex personal relationships by providing a deeper understanding of the underlying dynamics. She has provided objectivity, support, challenged my thinking, and has given me the tools I need to move forward more confidently.

    I have been seeing Heather for 6 months now. If you are new to therapy or if it has not worked for you in the past Heather is the perfect place to start, or restart. I have been in therapy on and off since childhood and I have made more progress with Heather than I have anywhere else. Any positive characteristic applicable to a therapist could be attributed to Heather. I'd recommend her to anyone.

    I began seeing Heather while in Graduate school, and I could not be more happy with the progress I made from seeking her assistance. She is driven in delivering the most effective approaches to address concerns, accommodate in financial struggles as much as possible under the Social Work Board of Ethics and very compassionate. I had to relocate, and she made sure to follow up as necessary; even filling out a reference form I needed for an application. I would absolutely recommend her.

    Heather is professional, kind and easy to talk to. She offers valuable advice and counseling that leads to positive change. I've been seeing her for nearly two years and have been able to cut way back on the frequency of my appointments due to the help that she's provided.
