Heather Hawthorne, MA Associate Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
My passion is to work with couples and families to help bring hope and change as you navigate life’s challenges. Choosing to come to therapy is a brave decision, and it is my goal to walk closely alongside you as we face these difficulties together. You can expect that I will meet you in whatever place you are with sensitivity and empathy. Building a trusting relationship in order to create a safe and positive environment is one of my top priorities in order to make this a helpful experience for you.
I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist with my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Wheaton College. In my training, I have worked with a wide variety of individuals, families and couples. I have training in play therapy and have worked with children and families around issues of anxiety, self-harm, gender identity, complex trauma, and conflict within the family. I also enjoy walking alongside people working through life transitions and grief/loss issues. Before joining Stenzel Clinical Services, I worked in the foster care system with at-risk children and their families.
I consider it a great privilege to hold hope for people as we walk together through difficult situations and move towards greater healing and wholeness. I look forward to starting this process with you!
