Heather Fawcett is a registered member of the Ontario College of Social Workers. Heather has worked within the ASD community for twenty years, connecting families and professionals with resources, running family support groups, facilitating future planning for individuals, and advocating for better supports and services.  The focus of her private practice is counselling older teens and adults with ASD and their families.  She provides support to individuals and families in understanding ASD, managing anxiety and depression, handling life transitions, navigating relationships, and coordinating supports and services.  She works in partnership with each client to determine the best therapeutic approach.  Fees may be partly covered by insurance under social work.
