About Me

Hello! My Name is Heather. I have lived in Maine most of my life but am not a
native as was born in Kansas City, Missouri. I love spending time outside but
also love the hustle bustle of big cities. I have been living in the Bangor area
with my family for the past 21 where I’ve enjoyed the pace of life but also love
to travel to Boston or further afar as much as possible.
What brings me joy is seeing the best in others and feeling connected to a community. My approach to therapy is centered on supporting self-efficacy and personal knowledge. I focus on empowerment and growing toward living your best life. I consider it a privilege to be able to accompany people as they endeavor to move forward in all their goals. I truly believe that we each know our own self better than anyone else ever could and my goal is to help you nurture this.

What has been your most embarrassing moment (that you are willing to share)?
There are many to choose from but one memorable moment is the time I was walking down the hall at work feeling very put together when my coworker pointed out to me the back of my skirt was tucked into my pantyhose!

What is your favorite food?
I love all things spicy and vegetables whether cooked or raw. My favorite thing is to get a salad with as many ingredients as possible from Sweet Greens.

Favorite quotes
”Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Mary Oliver
“Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good.”

If you could take a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Paris, France, where I would walk for hours taking in the people and colors, sit in the outdoor cafes, and exploring the thrift stores.

Professional Credentials and Interests
Master’s Degree in Social Work, University of Maine.
Bachelor Degree in Psychology, University of Maine.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2014.
I am a clinical social worker who enjoys providing therapy as well as coaching others to reach their goals. My theoretical framework includes a mix of cognitive-behavioral therapy, strengths-based perspective, whole body, and mindfulness. I believe people hold the secrets within themselves for how to heal and that we in the counseling profession are here to support them in self-discovery.
