LPC #PC011695 (Expires: 2023-02-28)
I have been to a couple of therapists over the years and I can quickly tell if someone has the skills needed.
Heather is fantastic! She is a great active listener, prompt, organized, prepared ( not fumbling around or rereading last sessions notes during the session), tender hearted, attentive, very kind, appropriately personal without over sharing etc, responsive, skilled at high frequency questioning very knowledgeable and just very professional. She’s a gem.
She is an extraordinary listener and knows what questions need to be asked. Provides a lot of support and understanding as things are shared.
Heather is a very good listener and doesn't rush to make quick judgments or responses but waits patiently to gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics being discussed. Her warm manner has really helped us feel free to discuss things just as they are, bringing better self-understanding and real improvements in our relationship.
