Heather Adams



Hi, my name is Heather Adams and I am a Clinical Professional Counselor - Intern and have my Masters in Mental Health Counseling. I use an integrated approach for each of my clients to ensure the most effective treatment for your personal healing and growth. If you are looking for someone to guide you through grief, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, life-transitions, or even complex trauma, I have the training and experience to provide relief of symptoms while examining the root causes. I also perform play therapy and applied behavioral analysis for children and adolescents that struggle with pervasive developmental disabilities and/or behavioral issues such as attention deficit disorder. I utilize the most up to date empirical evidence to guide my practice and am rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic, humanistic, and solution-focused approaches.

My goal for you is guiding you through a process of developing new insight and therefore skills that will bring about genuine lasting change in your perceptions, beliefs, thought patterns and behaviors. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is collaborative, and I also believe the process is challenging; both resulting in a rewarding relationship with yourself and your environment once you leave the office. To schedule your first session with me, call or text our Counseling Center at (702) 716-0908 or click here.
