About Heather Emery
Prior to embarking on a career in the mental health field, I worked in education for more than 20 years. I have taught grade levels from kindergarten through high school and worked as a school counselor. My area of expertise was Exceptional Student Education, which taught me the importance of looking at an individual’s needs, strengths and readiness for change.
The past few years I have worked in the areas of substance abuse and trauma, but I also enjoy working with young adults. My treatment approach is based more on an individual’s needs. I feel the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important elements for successful treatment, and I strive to create a safe, supportive space to promote insight and self-understanding.
