About Me

You are the only one who can change your destiny! My work as a crisis assessment specialist has helped me to refine my therapeutic approach to quick and effective interventions. I will not tell you what you want to hear. I will not allow you to make excuses for your poor choices and behaviors. I will help you understand how the events of your life have shaped you into the exact individual you are. I listen and work to gain an understanding about how the events of your life have led to emotional and relational problems. Together, you and I will determine your goals and make a progress plan to cause you to live an abundant life as a survivor and an achiever rather than being stuck in a life of being a victim. I believe in cognitive behavioral, reality, and dialect behavioral therapies.

I have worked with adolescents, adults, couples, and geriatric clients. I have also worked as a victim advocate with local sheriff departments. I spend most of my time in an emergency room working with people who are psychotic, intoxicated, and often suicidal. I have seen hundreds of people at their very worst and have worked hard to help point them on the path that will lead to help and healthy relationships.

I serve as a mentor/supervisor for masters level clinicians as well as 3rd and 4th year medical students. I love to teach and watch people grow into the very best version of themselves.

If you are ready to do some hard work and make real, long lasting changes - I am the counselor for you. If you want someone to tell you what you want to hear and allow you to live with unhealthy relationships, please look at the other professional and competent counselors here.

I want to walk with you through the mire and help you come out accepting what you can not change and learning to love others and yourself.

I am eager to hear from you!

Heidi is great, she's helping challenge my core beliefs! Sometimes a little more in depth response would be good, but I do put ALOT into my responses. I suspect we'd be writing novels. She's so kind and yet pushes me! I'd certainly recommend her.

I worked with Heidi for exactly one year. There is no question that I am a better person and a person who is more at peace. Heidi's key strength is her patience. She walked through the highs and lows of a year's journey, and I cannot more highly recommend her. She will listen, give great advice, and season it all with grace.

I have really benefitted from the time I have spent with Heidi Bode in counseling. I have worked through issues very quickly compared to traditional counseling. She seems very experienced in her field. She does not placate me or simply say what i want to hear. I think the format of writing back and forth has really helped me to consider my thoughts more carefully and it has also helped to be able to read back through her responses whenever I want. I am glad I signed up and wish I had done it sooner!

Heidi Bode has been professional, succinct and on point with her communication with me. She is relatable using personal stories and book recommendations to help solve problems, all with a sense of humor. I have learned from her notes and thank her for it!

This has been an efficient and productive way to do therapy to help smooth out a bumpy path I have been on for the last few months, with out taking time to schedule, reschedule appointments based on a hectic schedule.

This is a great service and I highly recommend it and Heidi Bode!
