About me

I have been a counselor for nearly a decade and obtained a Master of Education in Community Counseling from University of Missouri St. Louis. I sought certification in perinatal mental health because it is my passion to help individuals who are struggling with fertility challenges, mood changes in pregnancy, difficult delivery/labor, pregnancy loss, and postpartum changes. Psychological health is related to healthy levels of self-worth and I believe that every person has many ways they can find value in themselves. Practicing from a person-centered lens, I value the client's perspective and experience while understanding the importance of a therapeutic alliance. I provide a non-judgmental, authentic, and genuine approach to therapy. I have experience and training in areas such as:
-Parenting concerns
-Maternal Mental Health
-IVF and perinatal issues
-Stress Management

Professional experience

9yrs in practice

Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Anger management, Career difficulties, Depression, Coaching, ADHD, Attachment Issues, Blended Family Issues, Communication Problems, Fertility Issues, Postpartum Depression, Pregnancy and Childbirth, Self-Love, Women's Issues, Young Adult Issues

Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Heather Midgley. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Heather is very thoughtful, attentive, and accommodating. She has a lot of experience dealing with a wide gamut of issues, and that is evident from the first messages. Heather also invests the time beyond what can normally be expected from a therapist. Her robust interest in my perspective has helped me work through quite complex blind spots I've had in my outlook.

I love having video calls with Heather. It's something I look forward to every week. She understands where I come from, what my situation is. She always is so encouraging and always tries to give advice specific to my situation. I look forward to many more sessions with her.
