Heather Valdez, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Heather received her Masters from California State University, Sacramento in Clinical Social Work. She takes a psychosocial, trauma-informed, and culturally-responsive approach to treatment to promote mental health and wellness. Heather is passionate about working with LGBTQIA+ populations and communities of color, and incorporates a social justice-oriented framework into her work with clients.
Typical treatment for psychotherapy with Heather occurs as weekly 50-minute sessions, and depending on the current experiences and mental health of the client can be in the form of brief-therapy or long-term therapy. Treatment can also be combined with other wellness services at Sage Integrative Health to promote a more holistic approach to therapy.
"Heather is a deeply insightful and compassionate clinical social worker. She is patient, open minded, and her calm nature makes her great to have in moments of crisis or high anxiety. She is committed to meeting people wherever they are in their life journey and providing trauma-informed care. I would highly recommend her as a practitioner."
