Hi, I am Heather. Nice to meet you!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who has more than 10 years of professional experience working with individuals, couples, and groups.I specialize in assisting those who have a range of concerns including chronic illness, depression, anxiety, panic disorders, relationships issues, parenting challenges, behavioral problems, as well as mood and personality disorders. I also have expertise in working with the geriatric population as I worked for many years in the healthcare industry before becoming a social worker.
I received my Master's degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California.
I utilizes a variety of clinical approaches that are targeted to client needs including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solutions-focused therapy, and mindfulness-based methods.
I believe there is not a one-size-fits-all approach, so I meet each client where they are while working to improve their strengths and address weaknesses.
My goal is to make clients feel as safe and comfortable as possible. I believe in assisting others in meeting their goals and I have a desire to partner with clients to help them have the greatest success. I feel that it is important to assist others in identifying their strengths to overcome all of life’s challenges, and I am ready to help you too!
