About me

I am licensed in the State of Arizona with 15 years of professional work experience. I specialize in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma recovery, and coping with life changes. I believe in providing a safe environment for healing and wholeness, treating everyone with respect and compassion. Our sessions and treatment plan are customized to meet your unique and specific needs. I embrace a holistic body-mind-spirit approach to therapy and utilize the following treatment modalities: Nervous System Regulation, Strength-Based Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Breath Work, Emotional Freedom Technique, Bilateral Stimulation, Mindfulness, Yoga, Trauma Recovery, and Feedback Informed Therapy.

Taking the first step to seeking a more peaceful and fulfilling life takes courage. I am here to effectively support you in that process. I believe we all are on a healing journey. There are times in our lives when we need some extra support and guidance for what is showing up. There is no trigger or trauma too big or small to safely process and bring into wholeness.

I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Sociology from Grand Canyon University in 1992. While working full-time as a Social Worker, and completing two internships, I earned my Master of Social Work degree from Arizona State University in 1997. After two years of clinical supervision I became a Certified Independent Social Worker in 2000, which converted to Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 2004. Furthermore, I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist–Individual (CCTSI) through Trauma Institute International.

Heather Wiest — LCSW, E-RYT®500, YACEP®, CCTSI — is beyond blessed to LOVE, SERVE and INSPIRE her family and community as a Christ-Centered Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher, Retreat Leader, Holy Fire® III Karuna Reiki® Master, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and contributing author. Her holistic sessions are engaging and rejuvenating, leaving one feeling balanced and inspired. Love Serve Inspire LLC was founded in 2018 to encompass all of Heather’s experience and skills as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master, and Trauma Specialist. Heather’s busy life as a wife, mother, and guide, encourages her to find the pause — embracing every moment of connection, presence, and peace. A passionate, yet simple girl at heart, you can find Heather breathing in another radiant Arizona sunrise or sunset.

I have not worked with Heather for more than 2 weeks but I can tell she really cares about helping me through this time. She’s excellent at communication and has a very positive attitude. I look forward to working with her and our weekly meetings.
