Welcome! I know it is not easy to reach out for help but I am so glad that you did! I am sure you may have some questions about me, so let me tell you a little about myself.
I am a license clinical therapist, certified trauma specialist, and meditation and mindfulness coach. I have over 10 years experience and I am from Missouri. I coach others to explore their full potential through traditional therapy techniques as well as meditation and mindfulness practices. I use these skills to help clients shed anything that is covering up the highest version of themselves, or what I call their essence. My main goal is to assist others in self discovery of their gifts, talents, and infinite worth so that they can become their best self and create a life they love.
I have worked with clients with a broad range of concerns including: anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, addictions, trauma, and abuse. Sometimes clients are not able to name their concern other than feeling that their awe, happiness and zest for life has been replaced with a low grade numbness and they would like to reclaim their life. I welcome all clients exactly where they find themselves and work with them to get where they want to go.
My counseling style is warm, accepting and easy-going. We will work together to achieve your goals. In my view, we are all doing the best we can in this moment and we have infinite potential and possibility for growth. My approach uses techniques from acceptance therapy, client centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness therapy, and trauma informed therapy.
I want you to know that you are not alone and if you chose to move forward with me, I will be here to support and help you create the life you want, It would be my honor and privilege to assist you. Namaste, Heather

Heather is a great listener, she seems to be sincerely interested in me, my story, and my concerns. She wants me to get rid of my limitations to see me growing personally and professionally. She wants to see me being freed from my fears and insecurities. I feel we are like a team and I value her support.

Excellent. Extremely patient and understanding. Without her I would never have learned how to cope with anxiety through the easiest of measures
