Calgary's Best Couples Therapist


Heron Free is an expert in relationship dynamics and couples communication. He works with both individuals and couples.


Learn how to increase your intimacy level with your partner to feel more connected emotionally and physically to one another.


Heron works with a number of women and offers an expert perspective on understanding relationships, letting go of the past and being successful at work.


Heron Free helps increase your awareness and understanding to target the key aspects of your life that are causing work, life and relationship stress.

No one’s first choice is to seek out therapy but sometimes seeking out a trained therapist who helps you see things differently, communicate with your partner more effectively, or just feel more positive about your situation can be a great choice.


My name is Heron Free, M.Ed., and for the last 20 years I have been working with people just like you, saving their relationships, helping them deal with work and life stress, and essentially helping people tackle whatever life throws.


We sometimes think that we should be able to handle everything ourselves, that if we are tough enough or motivated enough we can move through anything. Sometimes you can. And sometimes you can not. But why not work with someone who makes the process much easier either way?


I can guarantee I have already helped someone like you, who most likely, was dealing with a very similar (if not the exact same) issue you are dealing with.  So give me a call or book in online and let’s get started on helping you move through it.

I am also a hopeless romantic, and believe all relationships have the possibility of reaching deep levels of love and personal contentment, if we have the time and personal inclination to put in the work. 

I offer a small boutique-style counselling service that is highly personalized and very effective at meeting my client’s needs. Most couples and individuals experience results in 1/3 or 1/2 the time as compared to other therapists.


Looking forward to hearing from you.

Heron Free, M.Ed. 


Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is the ability to act in spite of fear.

    review rating 5  It is hard to find words that describe someone who helped you change your life. Four years ago I left an abusive relationship to only find myself being stalked by the very person I was trying to leave. After a year of enduring this, a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to go to a seminar about loving relationships, I had plans but for some reason they fell through, and I ended up going. I would say to date, this was one of the best “by chance” things to have happened to me. When I started going to Heron for therapy things had become so upside down in my life, I didn't know left from right, I had no reality aside from what was happening to me. It is hard to break down what stalking does to you, though in short, it takes away any sense of security and safety you have. There were times I couldn't leave my home and I would cry from frustration, that there was nothing I could do to help myself leave. Heron helped me to see things from a better place, a place where happiness and the good in this world derive. I'm still not quite sure how he does it, though his honest and genuine approach to helping people is a part of who he is, he is one that has found his calling so to speak. It has been almost a year since I have spoke with Heron, however, I always reflect on the things he taught me because now they are a part of me, of my thoughts and the way I choose to be. Regardless of what your struggles in life may be, Heron is one therapist that will show you the true potential YOU have to overcome anything.
