About me

Hello and welcome! I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Pennsylvania. I earned my Master's degree in Social Work from Marywood University in 2006 and have been practicing since, providing individual, couple, and family therapy for a hospital network. I have previously worked in school, psychiatric hospital, and residential settings. I have helped families effectively communicate with one another. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, relationship issues, and OCD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in meeting a person where they are at and helping them explore what their own goals are. It is important to me that each person I work with is treated with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, mindfulness counseling, and yogic techniques. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. As a teen, it is difficult finding the right ways to communicate and understand thoughts and feelings. My hope is to help you find your own voice and feel good about yourself. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Heather has been extremely helpful and attentive with any situation I’ve been faced with. The last 2 years were filled with triumph and obstacles and Heather has been a wonderful guide through it all. She’s very professional, attentive, empathic and caring. She radiates kindness and love. It’s a true honor to have had her as my therapist. Thank you so much Heather ❤️

Heather became my therapist during a time of personal crisis nearly a year ago. Her expertise guided me through that time and, since then, supported a number of life changes and adjustments that have made a profoundly positive impact on my life. I'm in a much more stable place personally and professionally, and better positioned to keep growing as a person and to productively deal with life's inevitable challenges.

Heather is amazing! :) She made my feelings feel valid. She never judged or gave her own option. She always listened and helped! I’ve been to therapy before and I didn’t think it was working for me, until now. I can’t thank Heather enough for all the help and support.

I have only had a couple of sessions so far with Heather to deal with my pregnancy anxiety in the last couple of weeks of my pregnancy. But she was so great. She could relate well to the issues i was having. She was easy to open up and talk to and definitely helped me through a difficult time.

Heather is a fantastic listener and challenges me to examine the "why" behind my preconceived notions and actions. She asks meaningful, thought provoking questions that have helped me to better understand myself and my emotional responses to situations. She's also given me great advice and guidance on how to better manage my anxiety. Talking with Heather has helped me.
