Alan Davidhizar, LMHC | Founder

Alan grew up in a small town in Southeast Texas with his parents and two sisters. He graduated from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago in 2010 with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Pre-Counseling and went on to achieve his Master’s of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Gonzaga University in 2016 after taking a two year hiatus from school to move to and settle in the Spokane area. He and his wife have been married since 2009, have 3 biological children, and are currently foster parents to more. Alan possesses an enduring, even infinite love for baseball, books, and, possibly to his shame…90s pop music.

Alan’s clinical experience includes both private practice and community mental health settings, and specific work with populations ages 13 and older. Diagnoses and issues with which Alan has experience include but are not limited to: spiritual identity, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, relationship issues, self-concept struggles, and addiction.

Growing up in a family that experienced loss and grief, Heather developed a deep compassion for people at a young age. She knew that she wanted to come alongside others in difficult times and help them find healing. She graduated from San Jose State University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology before spending the following 12 years focusing on her family and raising her children. Heather is currently enrolled in the Master of Arts program in Marriage and Family Therapy at Whitworth University. She and her husband have been married since 2010, serving as a military family before settling in the Spokane area in 2015. They have 2 biological children, 2 adopted children, and provided foster care for over 6 years. As the wife of a first responder and a mother to kids from hard places, Heather has a sincere understanding of the impact trauma has on a family. Some of her favorite things are family pizza-movie night, summer lake days, meandering through Costco, and Olive Garden breadsticks.

Heather enjoys working with couples, families, and individuals. She believes relationships have a significant impact on mental health and she wants to help her clients thrive in their interactions with others. Heather is also passionate about helping those who experience anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, life transitions, and spiritual issues.
