    Our Founder and CEO

    (ret.) Sergeant Geoffrey C. Heard, MSW QMHP created Humble Strength to deliver supportive Therapeutic Services to individuals, families and groups. Humble Strength also exists as a method to deliver pertinent information to individuals, groups and departments with the goal of overcoming the inevitable negative aspects of working in Law Enforcement. Geoffrey received his Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Kentucky, where he was a student-athlete. Upon graduation, Geoffrey worked as a site director for a YMCA in metropolitan Chicago. He later became a Child and Family Therapist, serving the greater Chicago area. Geoffrey moved with his wife and children to Arizona, where he joined local law enforcement and later retired as a sergeant. Through his experiences and with his knowledge, Geoffrey developed curriculum specific to the issues surrounding the negative mental health effects of working as a law enforcement officer and the challenges they pose in serving and being a community member.
