Heather Sawyer is a Licensed Clinical Social Work Associate and belongs to both the National Association of Social Work as well as the Clinical Social Work Association. She received her Master’s in Social Work from North Carolina State University in Raleigh and her BA in Behavioral Science from Metropolitan State University of Denver in Colorado.
Her previous experience in the field of social work includes working alongside children and adolescents in a behavioral health hospital specializing in the treatment of eating disorders. She has also worked in the medical social work field as a clinical intern at Duke University’s High-Risk Obstetrics Clinic.
Heather has experience in working within clinics which specialize in therapeutic techniques including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic based therapy, and crisis intervention. Her interests include the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Inner Systems work. She is incredibly excited to learn and grow with these therapeutic modalities.
Outside of her practice, Heather enjoys spending quality time with her several pets (2 cats, a dog, 5 chickens and a rooster), her step daughter and her fiancé. She is an avid outdoors person, for which her Coloradoan roots are partially to blame, and she appreciates the healing that can occur through a connection to nature. Similarly, her long standing practice of yoga has cultivated a deep appreciation of body awareness. Heather frequently employs this awareness in working with clients confronting issues surrounding body image.
