Heather Heide, MA, LMFT, CSAT
Heather has a tight knit family and a love for spending time outside. In the summer, you can find her on the ATV with grandma spraying thistles, listening to vinyl on her turntable, or reading on her deck. Winter months aren't her favorite so she is generally planning her next vacation or working on perfecting her sourdough recipe.
