What happens in our therapy group stays in our therapy group. This is a place for a community of people to support each other and learn from a therapist. Sometimes you might not even need to speak to feel less alone because there will be someone that might be experiencing sometimes so similar to you. Try it out :)
Heather is a multicultural client-centered therapist in Pasadena. She tailors her therapeutic approach based on individual need, personality, and cultural background. Many of Heather’s clients come in to address depression, anxiety, trauma, and life transitions. Heather works with adults, children, and couples. She has worked with BIPOC (Black Indigenous and people of color), different socioeconomic backgrounds, and the LGBTQ+ community.
Heather uses CBT, Psychodynamic, mindfulness, and holistic approaches, in which we use the therapeutic relationship to build connection, understand thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that isn't work and develop healthier ways to view self and world. In session, Heather helps clients understand the relationship between thoughts and emotions. This approach supports clients to feel more relaxed, present, and able to make decisions that are more related to their wants and needs.
Heather's style is warm, non-judgmental, and goal-oriented. When clients first start therapy, she will learn and understand client's history, establish a comfortable connection where they feel safe and heard. She wants to help you find who you are in this world. She believes that you have the power to figure out your wants, needs, and desires so she will walk by your side, support, and guide you to the best version of you.
