The mission of Open HeART Space, LLC is to help people empower themselves to live a better life, particularly those who struggle with mental health issues. Having said that, you do not have to have a mental health diagnosis or any type of art training to benefit from these services! You are the expert on you. As a facilitator, my role is to walk with you as you navigate the road to healing and provide you with tools along the way. Each person’s journey is different, which is why I co-create a unique road map with you to help you reach your destination. 

The services I offer are aimed at you finding the freedom that comes with releasing the things that no longer serve you. I am not here to label or diagnose you. I am here to offer you a safe, creative, and judgment-free space. It is a space where you can explore your roadblocks, but also identify your strengths. You will be offered a variety of strategies and specific interventions throughout our work together. Then, you can choose to implement the ones that work best for you.

Whether you struggle with symptoms of depression, anxiety, or low self-esteem, adjustment issues, relationship challenges, or trauma, I am here to support you in finding a way forward.

This is your invitation to Explore, Create, and Heal.

Review from a client:

"After participating in some free events, and a couple of Open Art Studio events, I was pulled to return for some individual sessions. The space just feels safe with Heather’s welcoming and warm presence. She is non-judgmental and totally accepting. Making art bypassed my resistance to addressing difficult feelings.
The results of putting color to paper said so much without my having to articulate it. I learned that the process of using of various art materials is more important than the end product. And that the end product is not necessarily the end. The picture on my fridge continues to give me feedback."

Review from a workshop participant:

"I would highly recommend everyone take one of Heather's workshops! This was an amazing way to meet new people, get creative, and practice some self-care. It was insightful and fun. You are missing out if you don't check out one of her workshops!! Heather Was amazing throughout the entire two hours. Five out of five stars!!"

Client Review:

“I can write so many wonderful things about my experiences at Open HeART Space. Heather has great warmth, compassion, and so many other qualities I think a great therapist should have. Her creativity, insight, and passion for what she does is evident in the workshops and sessions I've attended. In particular, the process painting series opened up many levels of self discovery and healing under her gentle guidance. Heather is a gifted therapist that surrounds you in a trusting and safe environment to play, explore, and achieve a higher sense of well being and certainly to have some fun."
