My name is Heather, and I am a runner, writer, and therapist. These identities are the driving forces of my life, and they are interconnected in intricate ways to help me be a better human. On my blog, I sort out the life lessons I’ve learned through counseling, running, and writing and how I can use them to grow. These are not just my stories, but stories of all of us who are trying to make it through and find our way. Welcome to this space. I hope you find something that serves you and that you leave something to share with others.

Some days it just flows and I feel like I’m born to do this, other days it feels like I’m trudging through hell. Every day I make the choice to show up and see what I’ve got, and to try and be better. My advice: keep showing up.
