About Me

Hi, my name is Heather Dominguez. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Alaska with over 20 years of experience working as a clinical therapist with various populations throughout the United States. I began my career in Alaska 8 years ago as a Parenting with Love and Limits Therapist. I worked to help put many families back together again. My most recent experience, the last 4 years, has been as an Itinerant Therapist in the North West Arctic. My experience includes but is not limited to: vocational counseling, crisis intervention, trauma, chemical dependency, grief and loss, family, and spiritual matters.
• Bachelor of Arts, Psychology, Blue Mountain College, Blue Mountain, Mississippi 1993.
• Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Counseling, Southwestern, Fort Worth, Texas 1997.
• Certified in EMDR for those with trauma
• Proficient in Spanish


Due to the fact that I was born in North Mississippi and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, I like to say that I am a “little bit country and a little bit rock and roll.” I have lived in Alaska since 2013. I have worked 4 of those years in the Northwest Arctic and 4 years on the Kenai Peninsula. My years in the Northwest Arctic were often spent doing crisis counseling with first responders and family members of those tragically lost to unexpected tragedies. I have a great deal of respect for those who are brave enough to say that sometimes I need a little help. I am a woman of Faith but I do not impose my values on others. Often times Faith can be a source of healing for ourselves and our families.
It takes courage to come to a stranger and share some of your most shameful, often painful moments with. I will be honored to assist you and your family with achieving a balance in life that you are looking for.

Written by R.E. on Jan 11, 2022 after therapy with Heather for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I feel very comfortable sharing my thoughts with Heather,without a feeling of being judged. I will continue seeing her as long as I can. I highly recommend you give it just 1 session.
