I’m Heather Carver. I am the founder and clinical therapist of Anchor Family Counseling. 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.
I strive to make a positive impact on everyone I meet. I can’t change the world, but I believe that helping others makes a difference. I utilize various skills, tools, and techniques in a modern “human to human” approach to help my clients find their hope and passion for life.
I like to think of myself as a “down-to-earth” counselor. I am direct and blunt, 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 seek support from a therapist you can trust to work on your life goals and plans while knowing that there is hope.
I am a graduate of 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 a Mental Health Service Provider designation. This office is a safe space for LGBT+ individuals.
The mission of Anchor Family Counseling is "To inspire clients to live confidently, love authentically, heal daringly, and hope boldly."
“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
