Meet Mrs. Heim, YLHS Wellness Specialist


I am honored to rejoin the faculty and staff here at Yorba Linda High School as your Wellness Specialist this year! I am looking forward to the opportunity to provide all the support I can here on campus. Let me tell you a little bit about myself...

I was born and raised here in Orange County, and attended Sonora High School and Fullerton College before transferring to CSULB to obtain my BA in Human Development and then my MS in Counseling, with Marriage and Family Therapy option. I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 2004 and I am fortunate to have spent my career working with community organizations, school-based services, and crisis youth shelters to help build up Orange County youth and their families.

It's exciting to bring my experience and expertise to Yorba Linda High School and help develop an incredible mental health Wellness Program for PYLUSD.  

If you would like to access Wellness Counseling, please contact your Guidance Counselor first to receive a referral. 

Go Mustangs!!
