Philosophy of Christian Counseling:
Heather has found counseling to be more challenging without integrating the love and forgiveness of God and the hope of eternal life into the therapy process. Believing in God helps persons cope with self-esteem, depression, addiction, anxiety, loss, and forgiveness issues. Heather sees clients at the Port Charlotte Seventh-day Adventist Church.
