Steven M. Heywood II, MA, LMHCA, C.Ht.

My name is Steve and I am the sole proprietor of Grays Harbor Counseling.

I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in treatment of addictions and adolescent counseling. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate, and a Certified Hypnotherapist. I have been involved in the field of Mental Health and Human Services since 2008.

I believe for me to give my best and most genuine self to my clients I need to continue my own path of healing. I accomplish this personal growth by attending regular supervision groups, trainings, and doing my own personal work with the technique that I offer. I believe in positive psychology. This means I am just as concerned with the strengths of clients as I am with their weaknesses. I believe in building upon the best things in a client’s life while repairing the worst. Some of my specialty areas include art therapy, career development, and hypnotherapy.

Growing up in Grays Harbor County, I have developed a passion for helping my community and embrace the opportunity to assist individuals, children, and families of Grays Harbor.

I provide Mental Health Services for the community, all ages, regardless of religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, providing services that span from therapy for depression and grief counseling to parenting support. I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my client's individual needs to help attain the personal growth they desire.

Warmest Regards,

Steven M. Heywood II, MA, LMHCA, C.Ht.
