Queer therapist specializing in Emotionally Focused Therapy with couples as well as relational concerns, grief and loss, trauma, and identity development, and attachment issues.

Hi, I’m Heather. I support individuals and couples to establish, build, maintain, and grow their relational and emotional bonds with the self and others. I see healing as directly connected to emotional processing, awareness, and the ability to re-experience relationships in a new way. I utilize attachment based approaches to help clients understand and re-imagine relational patterns in their life. I come from a family that experienced generations of separation and divorce. Understanding the impacts of intergenerational patterns directly correlates to my interest in attachment and how relationships can impact entire family systems. Thus, I often work from a systemic view in therapy, seeing how identities, external stressors, environments, and relationships can all impact the way a person moves through the world.

My therapy practice is rooted in emotion-focused, narrative, attachment, humanistic, and strengths-based approaches. Additionally, I use a systemic lens in the counseling process, seeing a person in the context of their values, intergenerational patterns, salient identities, and societal experiences. Salient identities that I hold include my lived experience as a white, lesbian, queer, and cisgender female. Understanding my places of privilege as well as experiences of marginalization has brought more nuance to the ways I understand myself and connect with others. My favorite part of my work is seeing clients discover parts of themselves and integrate them into their preferred new reality. I also love emotion processing and supporting clients to build a greater sense of home within themselves through emotional connection with self and others.
