Heather Shaver

(LCSW)

About Me

I am Heather Shaver, Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I earned my Bachelor of Science in Psychology form the University of Florida in 2004 and completed my Masters in Social Work (MSW) from the University of Central Florida in 2006. I was originally hired by internship in 2006 where I was a Victim Advocate for domestic violence and sexual assault survivors. Being an advocate taught me how to use my clinical experience and training to help people through crisis and trying times. I took this training and moved forward with my career. I worked with Department of Juvenile Justice in a lock down facility for residential substance abuse, hospice care, home health care, and private practice. Currently I am the Director of Mental Health Services and work with chronically ill adults.

I have a vast knowledge and wide range of treatment modalities. I always start where the client is. I believe that building a rapport and connecting with clients is the most important part of counseling. Trust is what will guide you through these process.

Written by B.O. on Jun 03, 2020 after counseling with Heather for 5 days on issues concerning relationship

My husband and I couldn't be happier with Heather. We had another therapist prior to her who just wasn't a good fit. Heather immediately made us feel at ease and didn't pass any judgement. She gave us tools on our very first meeting to help get us on track to success!
