I would be glad to share all that I have learned over the years. Whether you are seeking help for yourself or a loved one, I can help you feel on more solid ground again.
Hi, I am Heidi Furrer and I have enjoyed working as a counsellor in various programs at SHARE for the past thirty years. During this time, I have helped many clients break the cycle of gambling addiction and regain the life they envisioned for themselves. I believe change is possible for anyone. Whether you are seeking help for yourself or a loved one, I can help.
SHARE offers free, confidential services for anyone who has concerns about gambling – whether for yourself or someone you care about. You do not need to live in the Tri-Cities to use this service. You do not need to stop gambling or ban yourself from casinos or online gambling to access this help.
If you are looking for counselling, the Problem Gambling program can provide free individual, couple, family and group services either in person or by phone/video. If you or your loved one are not ready for counselling, we can connect you with a support worker who can talk to you more informally.
