Heather Tuttle, MSW, LCSW

I am a “strengths focused” therapist. While identifying and defining a mental health problem, which is the focus of Psychology, is important, I believe focusing therapy solely on that problem is not. Finding and articulating a client’s personal strengths and the strengths they possess as a result of the challenges they have survived, and the significant others and associations which positively influence them is critical to developing personal confidence, empowerment, change, and healing. This is the focus of Positive Psychology, or the study of what is right in a person.

I lived in California my entire life until the summer of 2000 when my husband and I moved our family to Southern Utah. After living in Utah for 18 years, we moved to the beautiful islands of Hawaii, where we have lived for the past 5 years. I have been married for 39 years. I have 9 children and 27 grandchildren, who are the loves of my life. I am a published author of the book, With My Hand in His, Published by Christian Faith Publishing and available directly through the publisher or through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Audible.

Heather sees clients at our Hawaii location. Telehealth is also available for clients based in Utah, Arizona, and Hawaii.
