She is a graduate of Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi with a Master of Science degree in Counseling with an emphasis in Couples, Marriage and Family Therapy.

Heather is currently dually licensed as a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor Intern. Heather’s professional experience working within counseling has allowed her to become skilled and comfortable in her particular style. Her theoretical orientation aligns with Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy; however, Heather holds a strong belief that a counselor should possess technical eclecticism and be comfortable and well versed in many theoretical orientations and interventions in an effort to accommodate the varying and diverse individual needs of clients. With that goal in mind, Heather continues to stay immersed in other styles such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Narrative Therapy, to name a few, while also maintaining a Humanistic approach at the core of her counseling approach. When working with couples and families, Heather utilizes Family Systems Therapy, Structural Therapy, Strategic Therapy and Transgenerational Therapy approaches as treatment modalities. Heather is also Gottman Level I certified and enjoys utilizing the Gottman Approach when working with couples.
