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.

Heather is always there to listen and guide me in the right direction. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed, and she is able to break it down so I can make my way through tough times. I always feel better talking to her, and I couldn’t recommend her enough!

I love Heather. She’s amazing and always seems to know when I need to talk. She checks in with me if she hasn’t heard from me in a day and she really cares and is very good at what she does. Thank you BetterHelp and Heather!

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!
