About me

My work is mostly with parents. Parents, trying to figure out how they want to nurture and guide their children and to find guidance and help. My approach encourages parents to observe and describe situations that relate to their concerns and to brainstorm possible solutions. I frequently add to their list of possible solutions thus giving information and suggesting relevant skills. Parents decide which of their brainstormed ideas to implement by answering questions about their beliefs, values and the needs of their family members. Discussions about the questions and solutions gives parents an opportunity to raise additional parental concerns such as those related to work outside the home and those of being at home, family conflicts, stress and anxiety in parents and such issues as sleeping, eating problems and just plain misbehavior in children. Clients are encouraged to try different solutions and to report their degree of effectiveness and, if necessary to look for other solutions and to raise additional issues.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Harriet Heath. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Dr. Heath has been extremely helpful as I process my grief after losing my beloved dog after 14 years. She is a very good listener, very empathetic, and being able to talk about the way I've been struggling with the loss has made it a little easier to bear. I would recommend Dr. Heath to anyone seeking a compassionate knowledgeable therapist.
