Heather Barker, LPC

One of the main goals of psychotherapy is to not only process emotions and experiences, but to learn a broad set of thinking, feeling, and relationship skills to facilitate resilience to stress and the ability to navigate relationship problems. On a personal level, I bring unconditional acceptance, an emphasis on grace for self and others, and genuine compassion to each one of my clients.
