About Me

Are you holding it together on the outside when you’re struggling inside? Are you frustrated with trying to “self-help yourself” and not getting the results you want? Are you just overwhelmed? I am here and ready to help.

I have over 25 years of transformative counseling experience treating anxiety, stress, loss, transition, loneliness, relationship issues, financial worry, and compassion fatigue.

I specialize in helping people better understand themselves and the world around them so they can live full, satisfying purpose driven lives. Weaving in scientifically proven therapeutic methods such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy we will walk a path together starting where you feel is best and proceeding at the pace that feels right for you. Areas of exploration could be relationships, emotional health, physical health, work and leisure time, and financial stability. My clients describe me as: down to earth, compassionate, patient, comforting, witty, non-judgmental, “get it”, insightful and trustworthy.

Reaching out for professional help and guidance can be very intimidating especially if you’re already wrestling with issues. You are exactly where you need to be and that is right here. Please do not wait another day to start your journey toward feeling better. Gain momentum with your good intentions today.

Only had 2 sessions, but Heather has helped tremendously. Highly recommended.

Written on Nov 23, 2022 after therapy with Heather for 1 year and 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, and self esteem

Heather has helped me ground myself in life. I truly believed I was one of those people who "never needed a therapist" but she relates to my problems and helps me know that I am not alone in the problems I deal with.

Written on Jul 08, 2022 after therapy with Heather for 1 year and 9 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, coping with life changes, and coaching

The question is off: I would not recommend my therapist to a friend or a colleague, I like to think I’m the only one to have that privileged relationship in my entourage. Still I would recommend Heather at 1000%. She helps me progress in a non judgemental way, and doesn’t let me simmer in my moods but rather accompanies me through the thinking processes that lie beneath my behaviour, it is really the best for me.

Heather has helped me make major positive changes in my life in just a few short months. I am a 40-something professional with a family whose long standing depression and anxiety were exacerbated this past year. Right away Heather was able to hone in on some of my issues and give me meaningful, concrete ways to start working on them. I’m thankful Heather was my therapist and doing much better as a result of working with her.
