Heather was my therapist for just over 1 year. I have heard countless stories from friends and family members about the arduous 'hunt' for a good therapist, or at least a good fit with one. Arguably, no where is this harder than in the Bay Area where clinicians, yogi's, healers, etc., are a dime a dozen. This just made me feel all the more grateful for finding Heather.
From the gate Heather was at once responsive and unflinchingly accepting. Without fail she held, for the entirety of our work together, a remarkably warm, compassionate space that both nurtured and supported me in some very crucial growth/work. Her skill in 'client-centered' therapy is truly noteworthy. With a flexible combination of open/supportive listening, reflective feedback and poignant insights, her overall focus seemed to be on facilitating a process wherein therapeutic 'progress' or 'growth' was, in a way, self-directed. The impact of this process was huge. Almost every time I left the office I was in awe of what had just happened. I would leave feeling altered, kind of rocked, shaken up in the most grounded and deeply satisfying way possible (even when it hurt or left me a bit disoriented). Since then I always look for the opportunity to recommend her... I could not have imagined a better fit for me.
