Bio – In a Nutshell:
Heather began practicing Mental Health Counseling in 1992 in Home Based Family Therapy Services. Her patients were referred by schools, the Office of Mental Health, and the Department of Child and Family Services. They were in need of therapeutic intervention to stabilize their abusive and/or neglectful family systems.
In 1996 she completed her Master of Arts in Psychology Degree and began providing Group Therapy and One-On-One Counseling to adolescents, adults, dual diagnosis, and geriatric patients in an Inpatient Psychiatric Hospital setting. These patients were considered a risk of harm to themselves or others due to the acuity of their symptoms.
In 1998 she earned her License as a Clinical Professional Counselor and began Supervising and Directing programs at Outpatient Mental Health Centers. These centers focused on community, family, individual, and school based mental health.
She then began providing Clinical Care Management to hospitals nationwide, offering clinical guidance and authorization for psychiatric, mental health, and substance abuse treatment at these facilities.
She began her Manhattan Based Private Psychotherapy Practice in 2009 – where she provides Counseling and Coaching services today.
She is an MBTI Certified Practitioner offering Career, Relationship, Executive and Corporate Coaching services. Her guilty pleasure is writing blogs for Psychology Today on a variety of therapy and coaching topics.
