About Me

Greetings!

I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed in Tennessee with over 14 years of clinical experience in behavioral health counseling and medical care coordination services. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, coping with physical limitations, grief and loss and parenting difficulties. I have worked with clients who have spinal cord injuries, visual impairment, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and other seriously debilitating conditions as well as clients with high caregiver burden. Earlier in my career, I worked with youth aged 12-17 providing individual counseling as well as group therapy in a wilderness setting.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach relies heavily on psychoanalysisi, using the strengths perspective, motivational interviewing and strategies of cognitive behavioral therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs by first exploring your unique values, motivations for seeking therapy and the goals you wish to achieve.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life. It also involves intense, soul-searching work once you are ready to sacrifice who you are for who you wish to become. If you are ready to take that step forward and willing to do the work, I am honored to walk alongside you, supporting and empowering you every step of the way.

Ready? Let’s, go!

Heidi is always super understanding and kind, no matter what! Her level of compassion is what makes her stand out from most therapists.

Heidi had been amazing at picking up on what’s going on with me. She has sent me several resources that have helped me open up. She had made this experience so so comfortable and easy to talk to her.. that means so much

I have no hesitation about recommending Heidi as a counselor and confidant. She has excellent ideas and suggestions about how I might address the bumps in my road—we all have bumps but she really listens and offers constructive advice. I am happy to have her continued (and prompt) support.

Heidi is admirable. She is selfless, empathetic, compassionate, with great interpersonal skills. Even through the ailment and death of her dad, she still offered guidance and counseling to me that has been instrumental in keeping me level-headed when making life-changing or critical decisions. She is the best!

Heidi is a phenomenal counselor. I can not recommend her enough. I suffered from intense panic attacks and depression episodes, and Heidi helped me through CBT and analytical thinking to find the root of my problems. Her compassionate and supportive methods make you feel comfortable and at home. Truly the best therapist I have ever had.

I truly feel that she actually listens. She remembers details of what I have said and it confirms that she hears me. She encourages me to work on boundaries and give myself grace when I have human moments. Love her.

I have the privilege of being able to have Heidi as my counselor for a while now. From the very beginning, I was assured a safe space and an empathetic ear. She has given me a lot of insight to a lot of my what's and why's and has also made sure to check in on me when I haven't reached out to her. 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!

Heidi is a listening ear, she takes the time to actually listen to me and give me the tools I need to continue through my journey. I thought it was going to be weird talking to her but it was the opposite. She made me feel comfortable with expressing my worries and concerns.
