Heather Styes, LMSW

In her own words…

quotes  Empathy begins with understanding life from another person’s perspective.

Life is unpredictable. Sometimes you need someone to walk with you through its tough challenges. I am here to do just that—to sit with an empathetic ear to listen to your story and your truth. Whether you are working through trauma, anxiety, depression, or grief, I am here. I am passionate about working collaboratively with my clients to help them find their inner strength and hope. Together, we can develop tools and coping skills to heal from yesterday and be ready for what tomorrow may bring.
