Heather is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who earned her degree from South University. She has worked in a variety of environments treating all spectrums of mental illness. She enjoys watching her clients change through the therapeutic process.
Heather has a strong history of working with trauma, and PTSD. She is a trained EMDR therapist. She prefers this technique because it is not about reliving the past. Clients change their relationship to the trauma and reduce their emotional response to the trauma through the EMDR process. While dealing with trauma is uncomfortable there is no reason to continue to suffer from the past event. She has a caring and empathetic approach that is non-judgmental and will help the healing process.

She has been married for over 25 years and has a unique view of what it takes to keep a relationship functioning effectively through the stages of life.
