Heather L. Hurwitt
She/Her/HersRegistered Mental Health Counselor Intern, RMHCI Marriage and Family Therapist, MFT Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Heather specializes in providing abuse and trauma-focused mental health treatment. Many of Heather’s clients have previously experienced traumatic events, leading to painful memories, difficulty trusting others, or continued feelings of danger. Heather works with these clients to process their trauma and move forward in their lives. She also supports clients who are going through major life transitions, including the beginning or end of relationships, switching jobs or careers, or adjusting to a new way of living.
Heather’s style is kind and empathic while encouraging clients to challenge themselves and grow from their experiences. She is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, which is an evidence-based treatment for emotional distress caused by trauma and abuse. Through this modality, clients are able to de-couple from the burdens of trauma and triggers and find hope for their futures. Heather also addresses concerns using talk therapy to work through emotions, negative thinking patterns, relationship problems, or situations that hold them back from living joyfully and peacefully. She utilizes Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help clients reflect on their values and assess whether or not they’re living by these values. Her goal is to help her clients live meaningfully through healthy relationships with themselves and others.
Heather graduated Summa cum Laude with a Master’s degree from the University of Massachusetts, Global. She collaborates with her clients, never pushing them to disclose or address certain parts of their traumas or emotions if they are not comfortable doing so. She supports her clients as they gain a better understanding of the current state of their lives and supports and encourages clients as they take healthy steps toward developing a true sense of authenticity.
