About me

My name is Heather Trimmer, but please call me Payton. I have been in private practice for over 19 years and have committed my career goals to better understanding how to help autistic people achieve their goals after high school.

I'm a LPC therapist who happens to be autistic. Because of this combination, I can truly relate to autistic people and help guide them through their mental health journey. I wasn't diagnosed with ASD until I was 46 years old. I went through graduate school and received a MS in mental health, specializing in ASD-while the entire time not knowing I myself was autistic. Once diagnosed it became more clear on why I was able to treat autistic children and adults with a higher success rate than my colleagues. I now understand the phrase "takes one to know one".
