Heather Hanson

(MA, LPC)

About Me

Having grown up in a Christian home, I was always surrounded by other believers and had many opportunities to learn and grow. As I got older, I saw more people going through devastating, painful situations, and felt my heart pulled toward walking with them through it. Then my own painful circumstances came and I had words and a new understanding for how to come alongside. Those real life experiences led me to a career in counseling, where I am able to daily see God guide me in helping others. I am far from perfect, but in my imperfections, God is able to use me for His glory to help others heal.

I first started talking to Heather a little over 2 months ago, and talking with her has helped me immensely. My anxiety was getting out of control and she really listens to me and gives me great advise revolved around faith which I love so much. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without her.

Heather absolutely exceeded my expectations as a counselor. As counseling is a familiarity because of my profession, Heather adhered to professional etiquette while maintaining that intimate trusting persona. She had just the right skill to be able to challenge me and hold me responsible yet encourage me and nurture me throughout my process! Heather is beyond exceptional! Highly recommended and admired!!

My councilor has a way of getting info out of a session without pushing the subject. I find myself expressing matters that connect in ways most would find confusing, yet Heather’s capabilities sift the gold through the rough, and her professionalism is above par.

Heather is a life-saver! She listens to me repeat the same thoughts and anxieties over and over again while giving me the advice and support that I need. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone searching for support, honesty, and biblically supported advice.

This is my first time with online counseling and I honestly wasn’t sure how long I would continue doing online but so far I love it!! Probably because Heather is great! I’ve only been seeing/talking with Heather for a few weeks now but I love working with her. She really cares and gives me great advice that has been helpful. It’s a blessing to have someone who knows how to battle mental illness but keeps faith at the center of it because that’s important to me. I can’t wait to continue with her as my therapist!

Heather is amazing and everything I wanted in a counselor. She has the perfect schedule to meet my needs, is willing to schedule appointments when I need them and messages me back in a timely manner. She is also full of Godly wisdom and provides sound biblical advice. I have already told family and friends about her and couldn't be more pleased with my experience.

I enjoy talking with Heather Hanson and she has helped me through a difficult relationship breakup...she listens and makes suggestions and always considers my feeling first, but she also gives me perspective of what my ex-boyfriend might be feeling or thinking and that is what has helped me the most..she gets back to me in a timely manner and I have enjoyed our phone session...I would highly recommend her for counseling.

During a stressful time, I contacted Faithful Counseling for help in understanding my reactions to several incidents. She helped me uncover underlying issues that were causing me to overreact, strive for perfection, and take things personally. She asked me how I viewed God. That really made me stop and think. I had become so self centered in my thinking that I had forgotten to seek God first. I am very happy with the guidance I received.

Compassionate, honest advice given in a timely manner! Very thankful to Heather for being here for me. Having someone to talk to about a very sensitive matter was wonderful ! Thank you, Heather!

Written by N.I. on Dec 15, 2017 after counseling with Heather for 2 weeks

One thing I liked about her is that she never told me that I’m doing wrong but through the research and The assignments that she gave me I realized myself that I am on on the wrong path I think that works better than somebody directly tell me that. She patiently listens and tries to understand where I’m coming from. She was responsive and available for video/audio session which helps me to address my issue more clearly. My problem is still there but I can see that I’m walking in the right direction with her help. Sometimes in life regardless of how smart and wise you are, you still need help from somebody who’s expert. Especially somebody who has god in their life. I definitely recommend her.

Written by J.E. on Oct 19, 2017 after counseling with Heather for 2 weeks

Heather seems to always have that word aptly spoken that is like apples of gold in settings of silver. Even when my communications involve that I am feeling well, she still manages to encourage or exhort me.

Heather has done an excellent job supporting me as I go through this journey. Being a mental health professional myself, I am beyond impressed with her skills and ability. I feel that incorporating faith into the sessions has helped me grow stronger in my faith while also helping me to become a stronger more balanced individual.

Heather's insights are spot on and her Godly wisdom is expressed in a way that soaks into my soul. I can't thank her enough for how she's helped me see clearly in so short a time things that I have struggled with for decades! May God bless her richly and deeply all the days of her life!

Heather has been the understanding ear that I needed, and has walked me through some amazingly difficult situations in my life. She seems to understand where I am coming from, and is able to counsel from a Christian viewpoint. It's nice to have someone who can help me see the right side of the coin, listen to my woes, and respond with positive and helpful counsel.
