Heather's Philosophy of Care

I believe in:

  • harnessing your natural power and resiliency.

  • the power of mindfulness (or Spiritual connection with Higher Power).

  • the natural ability for people to be able to become the best version of themselves.

I believe that you:

  • deserve unconditional love.

  • can feel pain without suffering,

  • know the direction you want to take your life, just need some guidance to change tracks.

I believe that therapy works best when:

  • both you and your therapist are invested in your healing.

  • you and your therapist meet consistently.

  • you are able to take charge of the path you want to take.

I believe that change is possible when

  • with consistent and persistent action one moves forward.

  • when you allow yourself to ask for help and take action.

  • when you take the steps to accept the help offered.
