Registered Psychotherapist, B.A. Hons., MDiv, RP, OACCPP, Prepare & Enrich Couples certified
My name is Heather and I am a Registered Psychotherapist. I have been a counsellor with the Blue Oaks team for 3 years now. My educational background includes a B.A. Hons. in Clinical Psychology as well as a Master’s of Divinity in Clinical Counselling. I am registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario as a Psychotherapist and am a member with the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP).
As a counsellor I believe that every person has a voice that needs to be heard and respected in their personal journey. I provide support through even the hardest of times by helping clients tap into their own strengths and resiliencies for change and healing. A positive counselling experience marked by genuine positive regard can be the beginning of healing and the first step towards greater peace and healthy relationships.
My focus is to support individuals and couples, as they walk through the various challenges of life. I also work with families and children, providing counselling services that can make a practical difference towards greater peace and joy in their family life.

Outside of the office I enjoy being with my young family, which consists of my husband of 14 years, three children, two cats, one dog and three fish! Together we spend a lot of time at the beach and hanging out with good friends. During the summer and fall, camping trips are a highlight and winter brings the snow and slopes.
