About me

Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Heather, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oklahoma. I want to take a moment and acknowledge you for being here. It is not always easy to reach out for support when we need it. However, when done well, I am a firm believer that therapy allows us to feel heard and empowered to make the changes necessary for us to overcome our barriers. As a clinician, I believe that my role is to provide guidance and direction and to bear witness to your journey.

I began my journey in 2015 and have had the pleasure of gaining experience working with adults, adolescents, and children in outpatient settings, substance abuse treatment, inpatient settings, communities/homes, and college settings. Some of the barriers that those individuals were experiencing involved substance abuse, depression, anxiety, attachment issues, PTSD, family/relationship conflicts, life transitions, severe mental illness, and abuse.

My therapeutic style is an integrated approach; this also allows me to be more flexible in my style and to be the therapist that YOU need me to be. No matter how similar their stories may be, no two individuals are ever the same, which is why I pull from different theories. My style means that I can meet you where you are and support you while you identify where you want to go and tailor our interaction to what you need. If you need to just be heard, I can listen to you, and I can be that. If you need tools that you can begin to use immediately, I can provide you with those. If you are interested in change, I can support and assist you in this. I will be there to guide you, offer you direction, possibly even challenge you, and I will be there to bear witness to your journey.

I am also the founder and writer for, a mental health blog where I write about mental health.

Thank you, and I look forward to working with you!

Heather was very understanding and easy to talk to. When I started working with her I was going through a very difficult time in my life - she helped me find the clarity I needed on my situation to get through it, and now I have tools and awareness to continue building my confidence and strengthening my relationships while I rebuild my life for the better. Heather is warm, honest and quick to point out the important aspects, feelings and considerations in my given situations. I know I'm better off for having worked with her!
