Joy Spring Mental Health

Mental Health Services for NC and VA

You don't have to live in a state of overwhelm. It's time to feel better.

I help people who are tired of being "stuck" and are impatient to feel better get results faster through intensive, holistic treatment.

You are NOT alone

Does this
sound familiar...

  • Feeling overwhelmed.
  • Irritability, snapping at your loved ones, or wanting to withdraw
  • Constant worried thoughts that you can’t control
  • Distraction, struggling with focus, motivation, organization, or
    procrastination, or knowing where to start
  • Knowing what you need to do but not knowing where to start
  • Feeling like a doormat and struggling to set boundaries
  • Not enjoying the things you used to enjoy
  • Tearfulness, sadness, or feelings of hopelessness
  • Worried thoughts
  • Anxiety that is keeping you from living your best life
  • Difficulty with sleep
  • Relationships struggles
  • Feeling “stuck”
  • Disappointment in yourself, feeling less than, or uncertain about what
    you want or need

Hi, I'm Heather

A Nurse Practitioner for people who are tired of traditional healthcare encounters and want to work with a provider who takes the time to know them, hears and understands their concerns, and empowers them to take control of their mental health with realistic and actionable tools and resources.

Who I work with…

adults 18 and older

The goal of Joy Spring Mental Health is that everyone who engages in my services (whether it is direct patient care or online coursework), feels welcome, heard, and accepted. I respect and value differing cultural lenses. My care will meet you where you are and be applicable to your needs. Clients who enjoy working with me are:

Ready to be well

They are committed to doing the work and they want to work with a provider who will have practical solutions that are tailored to their individual needs

Appreciate a direct and honest approach

They want a provider that is team-oriented and looks at the big picture to explain the what and why of each step of the plan.

If you have ever had a negative experience receiving healthcare services, you are going to love how I do things differently. My patients aren’t numbers and they aren’t diagnoses. They are wonderful people (even if they don’t feel like it or know it yet), who, like all of us, sometimes need someone to take care of them or help them take care of themselves. That’s my job.
