Hi I’m Heather Knox
I know that picking a counselor can be a difficult process. I have been working as a counselor for the past 10+ years. My primary focus is in trauma and mood disorders. I currently hold a Masters degree in mental health counseling and am in the process of obtaining a PhD in psychology.
All of the education in the world though can't compare to the education I've gotten from working every day with my clients and learning about their lives. My goal in counseling is to allow my clients to thrive in their given situation. No two people are the same and I would never expect to treat them the same. I take a person centered approach to counseling. You are the expert in your life, I am an outsider who may be able to offer a different perspective.
I have expertise in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. If those don't mean anything to you, don't worry. They are tools that I have to help guide you through your process of self-discovery. As a member of the gamer/geek community myself I have researched and tailored video game based therapy for those clients who would benefit while also providing LGBTQIA+ affirming treatment.
