Heather R. Nower is a licensed clinical social worker. As a therapist, Heather works to understand her patients’ experiences and their goals for the therapeutic process. She sees therapy as a place to help individuals explore emotions, stressors, mental health symptoms, and substance use concerns. Heather’s goal is to support her patients in achieving the positive change they’re looking for. She pursues this goal by providing a comfortable, non-judgmental safe space to build a therapeutic relationship. She lets the patient set the pace and mood of each session.
Heather uses a combination of therapeutic processes to meet her patients’ needs. This includes person-centered, strengths-based, trauma-informed, and cognitive-behavioral approaches. Heather believes a healthy therapeutic relationship is vital to the change process. Heather has been providing therapy since 1998 and works with patients ages 18-65. She specializes in helping patients struggling with stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, and substance use. Outside of work, Heather loves music, art, food, watching movies, learning about history, and traveling. She also likes crafting and playing Tetris.
