Welcome! My name is Heidi, and I have been a licensed professional counselor in the state of Wyoming for 15 years. I enjoy working with clients of all ages and backgrounds and have worked in both a residential treatment facility for youth ages 6-18 and a long-term care facility with older adults. While I have worked with clients on a wide range of issues, I do have some specific areas of focus. I am a military spouse and the wife of a first responder. I have training and experience serving military families addressing issues related to deployment, reintegration, stress management, communication, PTSD, and traumatic brain injury. I have provided Dialectical Behavioral therapy (DBT) to individuals coping with self-harm in individual and group settings, and I have considerable experience working with adolescents and young adults.
I have a strong belief that all people, their experiences, and their voices are valid and deserving of being heard. My approach to therapy combines a person-centered approach with concrete skills like cognitive-behavioral work and mindfulness and relaxation work. After receiving my master's degree in Community Counseling from Chadron State College, I have worked in a variety of settings including teaching college classes. As an educator, I also believe in psychoeducation and helping others reach their true and full potential.
I would describe myself as accepting and genuine. I like to interact with clients honestly, openly, and with some humor. I look forward to getting to know more about you and your goals. I'd like to support you in moving through the challenges you are facing and will assist you in identifying and solving problems and setting a clear path moving forward.
I would be honored to work with you!

Dr. Edmunds has been absolutely remarkable and so supportive, especially during times where I needed help the most. She is always available, and responds within 24 hours of messaging her. Thank you so much for the help!

Dr. Edmunds is a great Councillor and she understood me and things i was going through from the start. She is very calming and asks great questions that allow you to explain yourself better. I will definetly work with her in the future if i ever feel the need to work with a councillor again.

I was a blubbering mess before I started my sessions with Dr. Edmunds. I was living in so much fear (but my biggest problem was being fully aware of everything and not knowing what to do about it)!! She has helped me so much in just three sessions. I’m already starting to feel like myself again.
