Heather Meader, LICSW, LCSW
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in Washington State (LW 60961647) and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in California (LCSW88501).
If you are getting through life, maybe even succeeding at many aspects of it, but just not feeling like you are truly thriving, I may be able to help. I enjoy supporting clients in finding new ways to increase their unique strengths and address challenges that hold them back from being present and engaged in creating a fulfilling life. My specialties include neurodivergence (ADHD, learning differences etc.), eco and social-political distress/anxiety or grief, those who work in the education field, stress, and those navigating new landscapes and transitions in life.
I am committed to a collaborative, genuine, and supportive relationship where we can address the issues that keep you stuck or repeat themselves in your life. I believe in the power of resilience and people's courage and tenacity during difficult times; and that our differences (including "mental illness") provide unique and valuable perspectives for the world but can also create intense internal or external challenges. I utilize a strength-based, person-centered approach and tailor my therapy to your unique needs. I work to help you maximize your strengths and address challenges by identifying skills and strategies to help you thrive. I would be honored to be part of your journey.

Ms. Fluffy Pants has an impressive resume and is highly regarded for her expertise in self-care. Her resume includes hundreds of hours of logged naps, impressive and consistent dietary advocacy, and mastering the art of rattling the door with intense vigor when requesting entrance to the office.
