About Me

Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes even the strongest people among us need a little help to work through some of life ‘s most challenging problems. Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. My focal point is providing a safe, supportive, nonjudgmental, and compassionate space for adults, couples, and families to share their experiences and to help navigate through some of the most difficult life changes [positive or negative]; to create more balance in your life. I enjoy working with individuals who are motivated to make changes to improve their lives, find purpose, and meaningful fulfillment. I would love the opportunity to help you create a personalized treatment plan that will be supported from evidence-based methodologies that will allow you to work with and through your current experiences.

I received a master’s in professional counseling in 2012 from Grand Canyon University. I have more than nearly 20 years of experience in the helping professions. I have had the pleasure of working with a range of people experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, family conflict, and symptoms of severe, persistent mental illness (SPMI). Over the past 7 years I have worked in mental rehabilitation centers as well as intensive outpatient programs. I believe in fostering the skills needed for effective coping mechanisms for overall wellness. I have ongoing collaborative initiatives with psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, primary care, social service agencies.

Deciding to engage in therapy can be overwhelming. Finding a therapist whose personality and style is a quintessential component in the therapeutic alliance. I view the member/client as the expert in their life experiences with unique values and needs. I look forward to helping those to effectively pursue their values and explore what keeps them from being the best version of themselves.

Harriette has an amazing energy. She has made me feel extremely comfortable and safe. First sessions for me are usually not the most comfortable and Harriette flipped that right on its head. Making me feel som comfortable to open up and be vulnerable right off the bat.

Im grateful I got matched with someone who really listened to my specific situation and who immediately responded acknowledging my situation and working together to find a way forward.

Harriette is a kind and understanding therapist who provides salient advice and thoughtful questions. As a trans person, it can sometimes be scary to talk to new people; however, Harriette created a safe and open environment free of judgement. Highly recommend.

Written by I.S. on Oct 18, 2021 after therapy with Harriette for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, family conflicts, grief, self esteem, coping with life changes, and coaching

Harriette has been the light through some dark woods. I have been through a couple other therapist before I found her. I felt like a number or just another appointment for previous therapist the experience was not genuine and it seemed very textbook like. Harriette's unique approach on therapy is genuine and truly personalized per person. She listens to understand and not to reply. She has given me hope that times when I haven't felt there was none for me. I would recommend her and her approach on mental health. With 20 years of wisdom in this industry should somebody grateful to have on your side. Definitely has given me hope!

I knew within minutes of our first meeting Harriette was the perfect match for me. She lets me speak and guides me in finding my own answers. Her warmth and empathy are felt even via video calls. I appreciate the tools Harriette gives me so I can continue the work between our scheduled sessions. I am so grateful for Harriette and look forward to working with her more!

Harriette is truly a godsend to my life. I was so nervous to start therapy for years and once my life hit rock bottom, betterhelp was my only solution.

I am a first time member of any type of adult counseling/therapy program and I didn't know what to expect. I booked a session with Harriette and I felt I had a better understanding of the program. It felt good to vocalize my inner feelings and accept my current being.

Written by Z.A. on Oct 05, 2021 after therapy with Harriette for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Harriette displays excellent listening skills and is extremely personable. In addition, she is very knowledgeable and her experience is evident from the word go. She listens and tailors her advice and knowledge to your situation in a very perceptive and kind way. She doesn’t recite a textbook to you, she uses her knowledge to communicate with you in a very non-judgmental manner and her understanding of my unique and non-conventional lifestyle is very helpful.

Work with me!
