Now for the fun part 🙂 Hi all, Heather here. Alongside the professional aspect of my job, I also want you to know that I’m a genuine person who gets frustrated, makes mistakes, and likes to eat the frosting off of cupcakes. Yes, I’ve even seen a few therapists of my own. Some of my hobbies are DIY projects, discovering new music, and making desserts. I am fond of nature, especially mountains and the ocean. My husband and I live in Southaven with our crazy cat, Olive. Our first session likely won’t end without me mentioning I love my job; if you choose to work with me, I think you’ll find that I take joy in my work!
