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.

I have a PhD in Clinical Social Work. During my graduate studies and career, I have worked with students in High School and College to determine their goals in life. We would complete career assessments, discuss likes and dislikes (as far as subjects) and then, we would try out some jobs (either through interviewing individuals in the field or by coordinating a day for the student to follow an individual in a specific field).

Sign Language

I was born deaf and utilized ASL as my primary language until I was in my late teen years. When I was a child, I was enrolled in and attended a school for the deaf where the focus was on communicating through ASL. Since then, I have worked as an interpreter for the deaf and hard of hearing in various settings, from medical appointments, to legal settings to church. I taught 3 classes for ASL in the past, beginner, intermediate and advanced. In the beginner class, students were taught sentence structure, basic words and basic communication skills. In the intermediate class, students were introduced to more in depth communication through ASL and communicating with facial expressions. Participants in this class are encouraged to focus on using ASL to communicate instead of their voice. In the advanced class, participants were to only communicate through ASL. At this level, students would be invited to attend an all deaf/hoh event where their only means of communicating was through ASL.

Possesses Master's degree in Counseling Psychology and currently ABD with PhD in Clinical Social Work. Have worked in the mental health field for 12 years working with a variety of individuals ranging from children to older adults. When working with individuals with special needs, I tend to use a variety of techniques including, using tactile, kinestitic, and physical ways of learning. This could include, using blocks to teach mathematics, singing states in order to remember them, using a ball that bounces for addition problems, etc. Each child is different and therefore needs to be assessed to determine which ways are going to work out best for that individual.

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.

A Professional and Master Mind...

If you are looking for a tutor who truly knows their craft, look no more. Heather helped me navigate through some extremely tough waters [logical research methods]. She also helped me discover the benefits of program evaluation, processes, and outcome evaluations. The tutoring experience was worth every dollar spent!

Mike, 2 lessons with Heather

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Heather really met me where I was at in my understanding and helped me to talk through the theories and processes that. Not only did she ensure that I had a basic understanding of the concepts she also ensured that I was capable of applying it.

Quality tutor, and very friendly.

Heather helped me review strategies for studying. She helped me to identify how to improve my accuracy on especially difficult questions. She helped me identify ways to reduce test anxiety and increase focus. She gave me materials to study to help me be fully prepared. She's very enjoyable to talk with.

Super helpful!

Heather was friendly and full of guidance for my ASWB clinical test including specific direction on what areas to study. She knew the newest direction the test is heading for this year which I found particularly helpful. Thank you!
