Welcome to Horizon Hope Counseling! We offer services to individuals, couples, families, children and adolescents. Sometimes people need someone to walk with them on the journey to help them through the difficult storms of life. Others may just need someone to talk to on a regular basis, until their need is met. At Horizon Hope Counseling, our mission is to provide a place for healing and to give individuals and family members the courage to change.
Blessings and Peace, Dr. Steve Heitkamp, Executive Director

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, and Certified Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor. I grew up in St. Louis, and have lived around the country—in cities and small towns.
