Heather J Young, MA, NCC, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Greenwood Village
I have years of experience working in the community mental health network, which has given me the opportunity to work with a wide range of clients with diverse backgrounds and struggles. Because of my experience, I feel very confident working with nearly any client. I have a special passion for adolescents and their families. I believe that family plays a huge role in healing and should be incorporated into treatment as much as possible. My approach to therapy is to provide a safe and supportive atmosphere to process concerns, while encouraging clients to use skills to change their situation.
I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, which is a model designed to help those who struggle with stabilizing their moods, impulsive behavior, chronic suicidal thoughts, and/or self-harming. I am also fully trained in Functional Family Therapy, which is a model designed to support families with conflict.
I have a passion for helping people walk through their worries, heal, and find ways to make their life even more fulfilling. I like to partner with my clients to create the best possible outcome by utilizing their unique personality and history paired with my compassion and knowledge of interventions.

Heather J Young's Groups

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

D.B.T. is a researched therapy designed to help participants struggling with mood fluctuations, self-awareness, impulsive behavior, self-harm, relationship issues, and suicidal thoughts. The goal of this therapy is to help participants build a "life worth living" by teaching skills to manage their struggles. There is an expectation that participants of the group will also see an individual therapist concurrently to increase treatment success. The most common diagnoses associated with this treatment is Borderline Personality Disorder, but the treatment has been expanded to work with many different types of struggles.

More about this group

Bipolar Education and Skills Training

B.E.S.T is a researched program designed to help participants become "experts" regarding their own diagnoses, symptoms, triggers, and treatment. Participants are asked to be actively involved in the process so that they can take control of their own recovery. Family members are encouraged to participate in the groups to learn ways to support the participant. The most common diagnoses associated with this group is Bipolar Disorder, but those struggling with other mood issues are welcome.
