Welcome! I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Iowa. I have 8 years of experience working with clients. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and supporting clients through life changes. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and existential theories. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
Additional areas of focus: Trauma and abuse, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue

Heather is very communicative and a great listener, which I really appreciate! She asks a lot of good questions also!
