Heather Keizur, LPC
"I also have a way of quickly connecting with individuals, honest and will read your readiness to be challenged and pushed. I am open about this early on."
"I think I set myself aside from others by bringing a large part of myself into my office. I don’t hide who I am, though I do not make it about me. I also have a way of quickly connecting with individuals. I am honest and will read your readiness to be challenged and pushed. I am open about this early on. Though I hope you have not had this experience, I do believe this is a calling and not a job. I have always known this is what I am meant to be doing."
As a client seeing me, you can first and foremost expect me to be patient, warm, and hopefully easy to talk to. For our first visit, I will do my best to orient you to the process of therapy if you have no prior experience. I am directive if you ask me to be, or I find that is what you need, but I believe this is your time and I allow you to take the lead. There will not be an agenda for you unless together we create one. My only motive is to give you the space necessary to heal. If I am seeing you as a couple, you will quickly find that I am not biased and will work hard on providing each of you the opportunity for your voice to be heard. Clients find that I am open and warm and while maintaining boundaries, allow you to get to know me, avoiding the that you are not allowed to know anything about me.
