    Heather is amazing. If you find yourself in the difficult position of needing psyciatric services, I urge you to consult with Heather. Our journey together was amazing, and I can tell you I would not have made it without her. She is tough. She holds you accountable to agreements made for the betterment of your health. This is the kind of service provider that can help change your life and empower you to continually take care of yourself after the crisis. I will always be grateful for this incredible woman. I am a better person, self, grandma. mother, wife, and employee thanks to her.

    I agree whole heartedly with Terri’s comments. I know that with Heather I have a provider who believes in me 150% and who is as committed to my journey as I am. The level of accountability I have with her is unparalled to any other provider I have had, and the improvement and quality of my life is just miraculous thanks to the partnership she offers. I feel genuinely listened to and respected by her and feel I can come to her in a safe environment and be open without feeling overly embarassed or judged as other providers have made me feel. I could not have the amazing life I have and be as successful as I am without Heather’s undying support and unwavering faith. An aspiring woman and mother, she is a wonderful role model for all women, particularly the young women she sees. I urge you to take the time to meet with her and see how she can transform your life.

    I am a counselor and I recently met Heather because she was someone I wanted to get to know as a mental health provider. I was impressed with her philosophy of psychiatry and her and commitment to her patient’s recovery and wellness. I would recommend her for anyone who is interested in participating actively in their own mental health and well-being.
