More About Me

About Me

Dr. Heather Austin is a pediatric psychologist who works in private practice and is also employed as assistant professor at University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Department of Pediatrics, Division of Adolescent Medicine. At UAB Heather works with a nationally funded program through Maternal and Child Health called Leadership Education in Adolescent Health (LEAH). Within the UAB LEAH program she focuses on interdisciplinary training and supervision with a focus on adolescent-centered/family-involved, culturally competent and community-based care. Her interest and love for Motivational Interviewing began in graduate school and has continued since then. Her education in MI has included advanced training in MITI coding with    Dr. Jennifer K Manuel, and she has participated in a variety of community outreach programs targeting health behavior change using MI. Most recently, her interest in MI has led to her developing an advanced training in MI for health care professionals in the medical setting at UAB.
