Heather Windham


A Message From Heather: When I’m not counseling, I enjoy spending time with my husband and toddler-aged son. We are an outdoor family; we enjoy camping, riding ATVs, and days at the park. On a rainy day, you can find me curled up with a sugar-filled coffee and either a romance book or true-crime podcast. I also value my religion and spend a lot of time reflecting on and growing as a person. While this usually doesn’t play a role in my counseling sessions, if you are interested in incorporating your own religious or spiritual beliefs, let me know and we can talk about what that may look like for you.

About Heather

My name is Heather D. Windham, PhD, ALC, NCC, (she/her), and I am thankful you’ve decided

to begin the therapeutic process! I have previously worked as a school counselor, receiving my

Master’s Degree in School Counseling in 2018. I then earned my Doctorate Degree in

Counseling Education in 2022. I currently work full-time as an Assistant Professor at the

University of Alabama at Birmingham in addition to working with Warrior Wellness Group part

time. I am currently an Associate Licensed Counselor (ALC) through the Alabama Board of

Examiners in Counseling, under the supervision of Charles Duer, LPC-S. I also am a Nationally

Certified Counselor (NCC) and certified school counselor in Alabama.

While I do work with adults as well, I primarily work with children and adolescents, and their

families. I utilize a play therapy approach to counseling, which means that I take the focus off

talking and spend more time getting to know you and your child in a fun way. Sometimes

children have a hard time communicating their thoughts and feelings with words, so this

approach gives them a tool for communication that tends to come more naturally for them. I

also value person-centered counseling, which allows me to focus on you or your child’s

strengths and abilities as they are. When I work with adults, I will use play therapy within your

comfort level. However, I lean more towards person-centered therapy with adults to give you

the space to share your concerns and process them in a way that works best for you.

Thank you again for taking the time to visit my webpage today. Finding a therapist and starting

this process can be exciting, but also overwhelming sometimes. My goal is to create a safe

therapeutic space for us to work through any difficulties you may be facing right now. I hope

that I get the privilege of meeting you soon. I’d love to hear more about what makes you who

you are!


I currently accept Medicaid and cash-pay clients.
