I am an Educational Psychologist, holding a PhD in Clinical Social Work, and 2 Master's degrees; 1 in Counseling Psychology, the other in Spiritual Growth and Development. I currently am self-employed working with children who have been displaced from the mainstream educational system due to their mental health issues. My goal is to provide individualized education, while focusing on curtailing problem behaviors in a positive manner so that re-integration to the public education system can occur.
I have over 15 years experience working in the field of Counseling and Social Work. I have worked in a variety of settings, including: college mental health, inpatient psychiatric, outpatient psychiatric, crisis evaluation, Emergency Room, Hospice and Palliative care, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and elementary/middle schools. I have spent much of my career working to educate others to ensure that we are all providing the best possible services available to our clients, no matter their circumstances.
While working with students, my first goal is to find out what learning style/s are best for that student. I utilize a very positive, encouraging, Person-centered approach to tutoring, to facilitate a learning environment that supports growth and knowledge development.

A research methods expert in the field
I am struggling with getting the concepts of research methods. Heather makes learning fun and easy. After a session with Heather I was able to share what I learned and explain the concepts to the rest of my class members in everyday terms.Tovakyshe , 19 lessons with Heather

Led a great company lunch and learn about bias!
My company recently hired Heather to conduct an informal lunch and learn session for our employees discussing the Psychology of Bias. Heather pulled together the presentation and materials herself and led an engaging conversation with over 60 people about personal biases, how to be aware of biases, and how to change biases. A few employees even inquired about continuing the conversation 1:1 with her after the meeting. Heather has been great 1:1, and was great and engaging for a larger corporate setting as well. Highly recommend!Erika, 1 lesson with Heather
Heather is very knowledgeable and she makes you think and analyze the question and the answer. I felt much more confident in my answered and I totally understood the logic behind it. I highly recommend Heather if you want to get an A in your class or exam.Emma, 3 lessons with Heather

Great tutor patient and very knowledgeable
I've been taking a course Assessment and diagnosis this semester and I've been so lost in the class. The professor complicates this course and doesnt go in depth with anything. One hour with Heather and she was able to break things down for me so I could finally grasp what the professor has been teaching for 9 week. She is super patient and knows her stuff.Judith, 2 lessons with Heather
Knowledgeable and patient
Heather became apart of my academic journey at a time when I needed it the most. As a MSW student takes the time to break down the theories and reviews with me how to apply them in my writing.MICHELLE, 6 lessons with Heather

Very Knowledgeable and experienced in the field
Heather is so smart and I like the way she helped me to realize what I already while at the same time helping me learn more information. We talked the paper out which was very helpful because I came up with so much more for the answers to the questions. She is now definitely apart of my go-to helpers.Linda, 2 lessons with Heather
