Heather M. Scarboro is a licensed clinical mental health counselor, licensed clinical addictions specialist, national certified counselor as well as the owner of Healing Selves Therapeutics, PLLC. They go by whatever you're comfortable with - H, LS, Y'all, and anything that resonates and also respects everyone. They have worked with special populations through the span of their 13 years of practice, such as, the elder care community, community mental health, university students, the LGBTQIAP+ community, plural community, and front line workers. H LS's specialty areas include traumagenic disorders, specifically dissociative disorders, as well as stress/anxiety disorders. They have been a passionate advocate for persons living with a dissociative disorder since their own diagnosis in 2002. H LS believes in the mind/body/heart connection and incorporates this into their treatment planning. Their approach is based around the team model of collaboration and evidence based practices.
H LS also enjoys philanthropy, music, song writing and performance. In 2012 they were recognized as Fayetteville's 40 Under 40, for their engagement and service to the community. They currently advocate through blogs, interviews, podcasts, and presentations to propagate accurate information, education, and understanding of dissociative identity disorder.
H LS enjoys writing, singing and jamming with their music friends in the Kirtan Bliss Band. They also utilize art, gardening and cooking new and exciting meals as self care in their free time. When not involved in any of the above, they can be found watching on repeat all renditions of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; and eating pizza!
