About

Heather Pruitt, MSW, LCSWA

Contract Therapist

I'm glad that you have chosen to take an important step toward managing your mental health symptoms. Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Heather Pruitt and I am a licensed clinical social work associate. I create a warm inviting environment for my clients to process their mental health symptoms without judgment.

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. I primarily have experience treating anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Here is a little about me: I'm originally from Alamance County. I am married, have five children, and have two grandchildren with one on the way. I enjoy beekeeping, reading, and international travel. I also have a Havanese dog named Figgy. When I'm not working, I love spending time with my family and friends.
