“A thoughtful, professional, and intelligent therapist. Highly recommended.” Psychotherapy Client
Working with Heather was my first experience with having a life coach. I learned from Heather that there is a difference between having a vague goal (I want “balance in my life”) and a concrete goal (“I want to work for myself so I can have time for my family”). Heather helped me break down my large overwhelming goals into small achievable steps. What seemed insurmountable was made possible by her helping me identify the tasks required to take the first steps towards my dreams. Heather did not “tell” me the answers; rather she helped me discover them on my own! She is a motivator and a cheerleader, yet compassionate. If you hit roadblocks she will teach you how to hurdle them. She helps you draw your own map and guides you along the path you created. I would highly recommend Heather as she gave me the jump start I needed to make my goals a reality! – Nicole R.
