What is a Waterstone?

A waterstone is a tool – a natural stone – used to sharpen another instrument.  Counseling is very similar in that we are all a “work in progress” – changing and growing – and in a safe environment we can sharpen one another in a way that creates authenticity and the freedom to be known.

About Us

Our brokenness reveals something about who we are.  Our sufferings and pains are not simply bothersome interruptions of our lives; rather, they touch us in our uniqueness and our most intimate individuality.

Heather Parker, M.Ed., LPC-S, NCC

“The spontaneous movement in all of us is toward connection and health and aliveness .  No matter how withdrawn and isolating we have become, or how serious the trauma we have experienced, on the deepest level, just as a plant spontaneously moves towards the sun, there is in each of us an impulse moving toward connection.” Heller & LaPierre


“Connection, health, and aliveness”…..My desire is to create a safe, curious, compassionate and collaborative space to support clients in exploration of who they are authentically created to be.  I consider it a true honor to walk with clients as they do the personal work of exploring what might be getting in the way of true connection to God, self and others; as well as, what it is they truly want for themselves as a living, breathing, imperfect, subjective human being.

Heather Davis, CLC, ICP

The journey that has led me where I am today has taken many twists and turns – some expected and some not so much!  With those twists and turns, I am confident that every God-directed step of that path has been and continues to be a huge part of what allows me to walk with humility and gratitude with others who are brave enough to actively participate in their own journeys…..because let’s face it – this life is not always a walk in the park!  

Sometimes it is not easy for us to recognize the “next right thing,” much less to actually follow through with it!  For this reason, I consider it a privilege to come alongside my clients to embrace curiosity, encourage sober awareness, and challenge active engagement in the discovery of the “next right thing” for them.

Hannah Jones, M.Ed., ALC
(Under the supervision of Heather Parker, LPC-S)

Pursuing a career in counseling has been about engaging my own story and the struggles I have faced, as well as creating a safe space for others to do the same.  When friends and family ask what drew me to this profession my responses come easily.  First, I want to meet people wherever they are.  Too often we tell ourselves that we must show up in a way that is “expected” or “appropriate” rather than believing we can have the freedom and agency to be authentic in our brokenness.

Emalee Jones, M.A., ALC
(Under the supervision of Heather Parker, LPC-S)

 

Having personally experienced pain and struggle, Emalee knows how hard life can be. She has also felt the benefits of having a trusted person help her make sense of her story. Emalee feels honored to have the opportunity to journey with others, no matter what must be faced. No one is too broken for counseling or so untouched by brokenness that they cannot benefit from counseling. Emalee works from the belief that all people have innate worth and dignity, and change happens when we are fully seen, known, and accepted by others. With warmth, empathy, and genuineness, her goal is to work together to remove obstacles in the way of your growth.
