Heather Alesch, Doctorate of psychology


 

Heather

I use an integrative and systemic approach to therapy with an emphasis on building a strong rapport with my clients. My unique skill set, being both a clinical and school psychologist, provides for a distinctive perspective on mental health. Positivity, laughter, music, and creativity are essential elements of my practice. I enjoy helping my clients to identify strengths while expressing difficulties through modalities that fit their abilities and preferences.

I have over 10 years of experience serving children, adolescents, and adults in community based programs, group homes, alcohol and drug treatment, hospital and detention/forensic settings. I have also provided services for multiple school districts.

I am happy to join you through life transitions, aide you in reaching optimal wellness, or help you and your family navigate the special education and 504 systems. I believe that you are strong and resilient. With a bit of guidance and support everyone has the ability to improve their health.

In addition to helping people, I am passionate about parenting, writing, music, and healthy living. I like giraffes, tea, and the beach.
