    Heather sees clients in our Villa Rica office

    I am an experienced licensed therapist treating children,  adolescents,  and young adults. I have worked since 1999 in outpatient treatment settings. I have 5 years experience in residential treatment, partial hospitalization, and community based programs. I was a college educator for many years and a school counselor.   I love getting to facilitate play and expressive therapies, working with families, and doing career counseling. I have attended workshops around the country to build my skills in play therapy and MBSR.

    I will work hard to build a safe space for you to explore your emotions  and change your thought  and action patterns. I actively give feedback and encouragement to support your growth and mental well-being.

     I have 24 years of experience in successful outcomes with treating the following problems with children, adolescents, and young adults, beginning at age 2 to age 35:

    o attention deficit and hyperactivity/impulsivity

    o stress management

    o depression

    o reactive attachment

    o self esteem problems

    o anger management

    o anxiety

    o obsessive compulsive behaviors

    o eating disorders

    A little about me:  I am from Newnan, GA, where I grew up on a 70 acre farm.  I went to high school in Carrollton. I attended  University of West Georgia, earning my Bachelors Degree in 1998 and Masters Degree in 2000. Both degrees are in Psychology. I have my license in Professional Counseling and I am a Certified School Counselor. I have lived in Carrollton all my adult life. I enjoy hiking with my four dogs, watching sports and movies, traveling, talking about Psychology, going to music concerts, art appreciation, and horseback-riding.
