Heather Treat, PsyD
(she/her/hers)
 
 
Mindfulness is a way of life for Heather and it helped her develop her identity as a therapist. Heather now identifies as a contextual behavioral therapist using Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) interventions/skills and an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach to intervene with her guests. She has one criteria for her guests: Willingness. Guests experience her as someone who teaches skills and helps them set attainable goals. Heather believes all people inherently have everything they need to move forward in their lives. She likes to help them find what they need and use it.
 
Her specialties include working with both adolescents and adults struggling with all different types of anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and relationship issues. She is adept at helping others find ways to improve themselves and their relationships with other people.
 
Heather brings a sense of genuineness, empathy, and warmth to her therapy with guests. She uses behavioral techniques, experiential activities, exposures, and family work to help guests improve the quality of their lives. She likes to use visuals and guests will often leave with a drawing or handout to help them in their treatment.
