About Me:

I’m Heather Mason, a licensed professional counselor serving the Permian Basin. I offer individual counseling to both adolescents and adults struggling with life and role transitions, major life changes, and other challenges. People come to therapy for many reasons. Some feel stuck, overwhelmed, want help with a specific problem, or are in the midst of a life crisis. Others seek relief from anxiety, depression, and emotional distress.

I believe that creating a strong alliance between therapist and client creates a positive and helpful partnership. My approach creates flexibility and allows me to adapt to each client individually.
I work with dedication to help people experiencing hurt process through their emotional pain to find happiness and awareness. I want to help you be your most authentic best self.

My Professional Background: 

I am a licensed professional counselor with over 8 years of experience working in mental health. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression and trauma. I work with individuals, teens and families. For the last 8 years, I have worked for Midland ISD providing counseling services to children and adolescents. I believe that talking can be helpful and needed but you will also find me implementing interventions such as art, play, sensory modalities and mindfulness to facilitate change.  As a counselor, I strive to help my clients access their strengths to help them feel better and achieve their goals in therapy and in life.
