About Me

Are you ready to GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY? And enjoy yourself while doing so? If so please click underneath and let's get to work!

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor located in Kentucky working as a Lead Therapist at a Substance Abuse Program for which has been designated for women who have earned felonies and can admit to a substance problem located in a local jail. I have over 4 years of experience counseling individuals and groups. Over the years I have helped people who struggle with symptoms of depression, anxiety, fear, paranoia, and distrust in general. I have helped individuals with Major Depressive disorders, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia disorders, Adjustment disorders, Attachment disorders, a variety of Personality disorders, and Co-Occurring Disorders.

I have experience mostly with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders-- but this has blossomed in the past years to a better understanding of individuals who just feel "stuck" and even at points "helpless" or "hopeless" and drugs were just their way out they felt at the time. I have experience in working with Mothers who are working on particular character patterns that have resulted in negative consequences in the past--including loss of rights-- to improve/create attitudes and behaviors that can improve not only their lives, but also provides for reunification in the future. I also have worked hard over the years to develop many resources to advocate for individuals.

I am a counselor who prides myself on this work as I have also been in the dark and realized my own light. I can testify that being in Recovery from both a mental disorder and addiction is the best choice I've ever made. I will candidly admit that if you would like to "work hard", enjoy yourself while "working", and get through some of the toughest areas of your life I would LOVE to work with you. I am a counselor who believes in earning your respect through holding you accountable, playing your "Devil's advocate", and challenging your own thought processes to help build self-esteem and help you to like I said before GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY!

Written by S.A. on Jul 31, 2020 after counseling with Heather for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

I feel like she has helped me a lot to process certain things happening to me but then at the same time to process the way others are thinking or what they are going through which at the moment I am not able to do which shows me the experience she has but at the same time is there to help me get through things
