Hello, I'm Heather Hunter. I'm an LPC in the state of Idaho. Much of my professional experience has been working with children and adolescents, and I am widening my scope to include therapeutic services for adults. I have experience with trauma and abuse, motivation, self-esteem, anxiety, and depression.
I take a person-centered approach when working with my clients. As Carl Rogers explained "It is the client who knows what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, what experiences have been deeply buried." In our work together, I will walk along side you in your journey of self-discovery, healing, growth, and wellness. My goal is to facilitate a safe space for exploration, a space where vulnerability and truth can be shared without judgement.
I often share resources, information, and homework that relate to your therapeutic goals. These are optional and can be done at your leisure and discretion. Remember, this experience is your own. I am here to help in a way that is meaningful for you. I am grateful for the opportunity to facilitate spaces of healing and human connection. I look forward to hearing form you soon. Take care!

Heather is calming to interact with. She isn't patronizing at all. She seems to understand my unique situation. She gives grace but isn't overly permissive. Works well for my needs.
