Hi, I’m Heather Hyland, therapist at UpliftMe. I enjoy reading, watching movies, and exploring the great outdoors with my husband and young child. We spend time in our community through playgrounds, libraries, walking/biking paths, and museums. We love learning through experience, often taking day trips around Colorado absorbing the natural world.
I am passionate about family mental health, working with young children and their caregivers. Oftentimes, when we become parents, it can be challenging to find balance meeting the needs of our children while maintaining our own well-being. Parents and children bring their own temperaments, development, and experiences into the parent-child relationship, sometimes bringing about discomfort. I am here to promote healthy social/emotional development in young children and nourish positive parent-child attachment through knowledge, understanding, reflection, non-directive play, and parent support.
I am also passionate about sharing early childhood mental health knowledge through reflective supervision/consultation for professionals working with young children such as childcare workers, home visitors, and/or mental health professionals.
I obtained my master’s degree in social work through Metropolitan State University in 2014. My experience consists of specializing in early childhood mental health and development through community-based agency work as a clinical supervisor, therapist, and home visitor.
