Heather not only offers a wealth of knowledge and support, but is as compassionate as she is wise. She responds to my messages in a timely manner and has somehow mastered the complicated art of listening attentively while still offering the right amount of counsel and advice. If you are looking for a counselor who is trust worthy, and warm, yet extremely competent then I would highly recommend her.
