Cory English
Principal Owner

Cory English is the principal owner of Healing Hearts, along with her husband, Dan.  She is largely behind the scenes at Healing Hearts, supervising the office staff, filling in as needed, and managing other clerical duties from home.

Cory is a retired Physical Therapist, a profession that she notes has similarities with mental health therapy in that it is a care-giving profession, teaching, encouraging, and enabling clients to use their inner strengths to achieve wellness.  Cory received her BS in Physical Therapy from Eastern Washington University and practiced primarily in the hospital setting in both Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, retiring in 2020.  She and Dan raised four children and have eleven grandchildren.

Cory has leadership experience in her work as a PT as well is within her congregation and synod.  Her lived experience both professionally and personally has given her an appreciation for the situations that lead one to seek mental health care.  The excellent reputation of Healing Hearts was a factor in the decision to purchase this practice.  She brings to the practice an understanding of the stresses inherent in being in a care-giving role, and a commitment be supportive to our therapists, believing that investing in our excellent staff benefits both them and the community they serve.
