Heather Livingston


My passion for social work began 24 years ago. It brings me joy to work with people from diverse backgrounds. My career has provided a rewarding experience of supporting people to be heard, validated, and empowered. I ask “What If “questions which leads to a road of self-discovery, healing, and infinite possibilities. I exhibit the same enthusiasm today as I did when I started over two decades ago.

I work with people from all walks of life who are transitioning from one stage to the next phase of life. Transitions are challenging and valuable. As a Black woman adopted by White parents, I’ve facilitated tough conversations around acceptance, privilege, equity, and inclusion. Brave journeys and courageous discussions are significant.

Everyone is unique with tailored paths to follow and because of that; I use a range of modalities. These include Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Relational Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Motivational Therapy. The framework I use, sees a person’s resiliency and strengths, as well as deeply understands and has compassion for all that a person has overcome. I inspire energy, optimism, and fun. Laughter Therapy is vital. Why laughter? The indulgence of laughter literally makes you happy.

I am also a Ketamine Assisted Therapist and provide this service to eligible LynLake clients through our partnership with Institute for Integrative Therapies (IIT). Learn more at or reach out to

My educational background includes a Master of Social Work in Social Work from the University of Minnesota. I have a Bachelor of Science in Family Social Science with an emphasis on Women, Youth and Sexuality. I also hold a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker licensure with the Minnesota Board of Social Work.

Humor, Hope and Humility is my motto.
