Email about Heather

Heather Schultz is a licensed social worker who earned her bachelor’s degree in Community Health from Governors State University and her master’s degree in Social Work from Aurora University. She decided to become a therapist because she wanted people to have a chance to tell their own story and truly feel heard.

Heather’s previous experience includes working with people to help them overcome disordered eating and focus on health and weight loss. At Willis CC, she’s excited to work with any young adult or middle-aged guests seeking to find peace. Feeling that she sees the world through the eyes of others, Heather is confident she can help guests reframe the picture of their lives and achieve their goals.

Those who know Heather would describe her as caring, supportive, and loyal. As a therapist, she hopes to help empower guests to live by their values and show them that they have options in their lives. She’s genuinely curious about what guests are facing each day and would like to be the non-biased support they need to express themselves freely.

A native of Kankakee, IL, Heather is a foster parent whose favorite movie is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. In her spare time, she loves reading, hiking, running, and drinking coffee.
