About Me

Hello!

I specialize in codependence and life transitions therapy. I help adults break free from inherited, toxic patterns of behavior in order to step into new seasons of life with confidence. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity and compassion while also challenging my clients to dig deeper for self-discovery. My approach relies heavily on Compassion-Focused Therapy and Internal Family Systems Therapy frameworks. I incorporate Buddhist practices and teachings with heavy focus on Mindfulness.

I absolutely love what I get to do. I get to live my passion every day, helping other human beings connect to themselves and learn how to live a more meaningful and wholehearted life. My work is my passion and gives so much meaning to my life. We are all interconnected and when just one person takes accountability to live their best life, the ripple made from their wholehearted love is more than one will ever know. I am grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of such transformation.

When we take care of our SELF first everyone wins.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I am offering only live chat and messaging services at this time. Because I do not offer live video and phone sessions on the BetterHelp Platform, if you are referred to me and you prefer video/phone live sessions, I will advise you to change therapists. Please only request my services if you are on the BH platform to receive live chat and messaging services and live in the states of NC or TN.

Take good care ,

Heidi V. Bailey, MSW, LCSW

Heidi is the best! This is my first time trying therapy and I am soooo happy that I got matched with Heidi. She made the process not scary at all, and she made me feel comfortable with opening up and talking about my feelings and different things in my life. She listens, and then she gives the best support. I know I can trust her, and I know that she is working along with me to help me become the best version of myself! Thank you Heidi!

Heidi has helped me through a lot of very heart-wrenching and terrifying situations. She’s always right there for me and shows care and concern for how I am. She is a blessing in my life.

Written by A.L. on Mar 11, 2022 after therapy with Heidi for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Heidi is wonderful! She responds in a timely manner to my messages, and always addresses all of my concerns and feelings. She gives a lot of great think-pieces and asks thought-provoking questions to dive deeper when needed. I feel completely comfortable telling her everything I need to talk about, no matter how uncomfortable the topic or situation may be. I would recommend her to people with similar concerns and situations as mine.

I'm so grateful I've had Heidi to help me process through some big changes. She's so great at listening, understanding, and bringing new perspective to my experiences. I've learned so much through our sessions and they've been a tremendous help to me in so many ways well beyond what I originally imagined would be possible when I came to BetterHelp with my initial goals for therapy.

Written by J.E. on Dec 06, 2021 after therapy with Heidi for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and grief

Heidi meets me where I am every session and has the spidey sense to know when I need a little nudge. She's perceptive and asks VERY important questions all the while making me feel like I've got a cheerleader in my corner. We are working on Core Values and this work is so invaluable for focusing my life on what matters most. I especially recommend Heidi to women who are fed up with serving to their own detriment. She's incredible!

Written by M.I. on Sep 20, 2021 after therapy with Heidi for 2 months on issues concerning depression, and eating disorders

Heidi is a breath of fresh air!! She’s the most caring and attentive therapist I’ve ever had and is never pushy. I’ve found in the past, therapists I’ve had, tried to quickly make suggestions on what they felt I needed to do and pushed their agenda. Heidi allows you the space to make your own suggestions and then will help you narrow down the best path to take and honors your choices. She’s encouraging, patient and deeply cares about your progress and success.

In times like these, I feel very blessed to be able to have someone like Heidi on my side. Thank you Heidi for all you do!
