Heather Landry

Victim Advocate

Heather maintains an active caseload and provides assessments for incoming clients. She provides trauma-focused therapy to children and their non-offending caregivers.

When asked what she likes most about working at Hope House, Heather said, “Working at Hope House was a goal for me. I took a Darkness to Light training several years ago and was so inspired by Hope House’s mission that I knew I was meant to be a part of their team. As soon as I was eligible to intern, I reached out! Working with the clients and being a part of their healing process is an honor. I love supporting and empowering clients as they learn ways to regulate their emotions and move toward achieving their goals.”

Heather received her BS in Psychology with a minor in Christian Counseling from Oral Roberts University and her MS in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling from Montana State University. She is trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and is working with the Department of Children and Family services to obtain an adoption competent therapist endorsement.

Prior to Hope House, Heather worked at Abba Educational Center as a homeschool tutor for high school students for seven years. She also worked as the Special Needs Coordinator at Church of the King in Mandeville, Louisiana.

Heather is originally from Port Sulphur, Louisiana. Her love of nature comes from a childhood spent on the bayou with her family. She enjoys hiking, gardening, and spending time with her children and grandchild. Heather and her husband, Ronnie, have been foster parents for many years, and enjoy connecting with and advocating for foster children in Louisiana.
