Recovery is… Freedom.

A journey towards personal freedom through self-discovery and a return to wholeness. This restoration can be accomplished through finding balance of wellness in the body, mind, heart and spirit. “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” – Rumi

Mini Bio

Heather grew up on the central coast of California and has lived in New Mexico for the last 12 years. She earned her BA’s in Psychology and Sociology from The University of New Mexico. She went on to complete her MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at UNM.

Heather came to The Evolution Group to begin her Master’s internship and found a genuine connection in working with individuals in recovery. She is now part of our team of licensed therapists and provides individual, couples, and group counseling. In addition, she works as a treatment provider for the Metropolitan Recovery Court program. Heather approaches treatment from a humanistic, person-centered orientation, emphasizing non-judgment, empathy, authenticity, and congruence. She believes we are the best experts on ourselves and seeks to accompany individuals on their personal journey to wholeness through healing.

In her free time, Heather enjoys spending time with friends and family, cooking, dancing, and traveling. She has discovered the importance of taking care of herself through connecting with nature and her yoga practice.
