Heather uses a very personalized approach to her work with her clients.

Having worked with Heather for career counseling sessions, her expertise was evident from our first meeting but beyond that, she tailored our meetings based on my specific goals/needs. Heather is a coach and a mentor and also the advocate for her clients, until the clients learn to advocate for themselves. She guided our sessions by continually asking clarifying questions and by doing so, made me verbalize what it is I wanted out of our time together.
