Heart of the Matter Founder Message

I founded The Heart of the Matter Relationship Counseling on the guiding belief that with the proper support, encouragement, counseling, and education everyone is capable of having the relationship they truly desire and deserve.

I believe that every couple is capable of co-creating a warm, caring, joyous, loving, affectionate, intimate, lasting, and sexually fulfilling relationship.

I also believe that it is possible for couples to work through even the most challenging issues while maintaining a sense of dignity, compassion, and respect. This is my highest hope for you and your relationship.

~ Susan Heemstra, LMFT
