Heather Sheely

(MS, LPC)

About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. I have 4 years of experience working with children, teenagers and adults. The last few years of my career I have been working at a partial hospital program, because of this I have experience working with individuals that have been diagnosed with anxiety, anger, depression, OCD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Bi Polar Disorder and those experiencing grief and loss. I have also worked with individuals struggling with childhood sexual trauma.

My counseling style is warm and welcoming. I love to use mindfulness and motivational Interviewing, however I am a strong believer in getting to know my clients before settling into specific forms of therapy. I do not stick with one type of therapy simply because individuals are so very different and deserve to be seen as such. I enjoy hearing from my clients and am always eager to see how our work together can be beneficial to the individual.

In the short time we have been working together, Heather has been supportive, comforting and is extremely enlightening. I trust and highly recommend her! She helped pull me up from a very deep depression that I had been struggling with for several years and was ready to quit.

Written by R.A. on Mar 19, 2020 after counseling with Heather for 1 month on issues concerning self esteem

I've thoroughly enjoyed my time working with Heather - I came to betterhelp during a time of intense change in my life and Heather helped me very quickly identify the behaviours I exhibited which were exacerbating my situation. Her enthusiasm, willingness to share helpful resources and link what we cover in sessions back to treatment goals has provided me with a structured way to build my confidence and self-efficacy. I would highly recommend her for anyone new to this platform as she is also very friendly and supportive. Thank you for your help :)

Heather is very laid back and makes you feel comfortable right away from the first session. She really listens to what your concerns are and what you want to work on. Heather lets you lead the session and then gives you helpful tips and responses to your issues and concerns. She also admits that she does not know everything, but if she does not know the answer, she will find it out for you. Heather also checks up on you to see how you are feeling if she hasn't heard from you for a few days. You can tell that she loves her job and her passion for helping people the best way she can. She is an awesome therapist!
