I’m Heather Carver. I am the founder and clinical therapist of Anchor Family Counseling located in the Cleveland Bradley Business Incubator. As a counselor, I am passionate about empowering individuals! Helping “everyday” people to overcome life’s difficulties and guide them in finding an anchor in hope.
My passion for working with individuals (children, adolescents, and adults of all ages) is rooted in my faith in God. I utilize skills, tools, and techniques in a modern “human to human” approach to help my clients find their hope and passion for life. Whether you have abuse & trauma, anxiety, ADHD, child and adolescent issues, depression, divorce recovery, mood disorder, eating disorder, addiction or substance use, grief & loss, parenting struggles, self-esteem, or social skills, assisting you in finding hope, I consider a divine appointment.
I like to think of myself as a “down-to-earth” counselor. I prefer to be direct, but in a compassionate way. I have special training in working with those struggling with a traumatic history of abuse whether it is physical, mental, or emotional. The first step may sound easy, but it is usually the hardest therefore seeking support with a therapist you can trust to work on your life goals and plans, while knowing that there is hope.
I am a proud graduate from Lee University where I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology graduating with honors. I attended Southern Adventist University for graduate school and obtained a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am licensed in the state of Tennessee with Mental Health Service Provider designation and Provisionally Licensed in the State of North Carolina.
As I’m writing, I am reminded of a quote from an old movie that is a favorite of mine, “Beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up.” – Hope Floats
