Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist | PsyD, LMFT
Despite working full time to pay her own way through college, Dr. Heather obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors from U.C. Santa Barbara. She was then rewarded with a full ride scholarship to attend Ryokan College (a private college specializing in psychology) to obtain her Masters degree in Clinical Psychology. She completed her doctorate in 1994 from the same institution. After logging more than 3,000 in-residence counseling hours under the supervision of nationally-known and respected doctors Michael Fenton and Michael Faust, she became a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in 1997.
Growing up in a secular household, Dr. Heather has a unique perspective on why healing must involve both the mind and soul, and the danger of omitting either one from the process. By creating an environment where people create their own unique synergistic emotional healing plan of action, she helps people facilitate quick resolutions…as long as the patients work their plan.
Dr. Heather became a Christian 23 years ago during her studies and work in psychology. Her faith colors her work. She views all issues as a dynamic physical manifestation of a spiritual challenge.
Dr. Heather has been healing hearts and minds since 1997.
She specializes in helping individuals, couples, and families break through old, sometimes hidden emotional barriers that prevent permanent change.

This tough time.
This stuck place.
This lousy situation.
