I love accompanying women through the challenges of life. Women are often expected to take on a variety of competing roles and responsibilities that can lead to exhaustion and burnout. These unrealistic expectations take a toll. We all go through periods in life where, because of life circumstances, developmental stages, and stress, we experience difficulties. However, these are also opportunities for growth and healing. By providing a non-judgmental and safe atmosphere, you will feel secure enough to do the work it takes to heal trauma, make meaning, and find joy. Together, we can transform suffering into thriving. I will be right there by your side for this journey.
My name is Heather Lindh-Payne and I have over 20 years of experience helping women just like you through myriad issues. I have a particular interest in helping women navigate relationships. Each person is unique in what treatment works best for them, and I pride myself in the ability to connect people with the support they need to feel “nurtured-well”. I am a graduate of Smith College of Social Work and completed my undergraduate studies locally at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. I am a dedicated life-long learner and work hard to stay up-to-date on best practices and current research in my field.
