About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and Certified Trauma Therapist using evidence-based interventions with over 16 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families who experience a variety of symptoms related to trauma, anxiety, depression, and life transition difficulties. As a Certified Integrative Medicine Mental Health Practitioner I go beyond traditional therapeutic interventions providing additional holistic wellness solutions.
The therapeutic process provides the client an opportunity to self-reflect, gain new insights, and build new belief systems. It offers the client permission to create a life to support personal health and well-being according to them. My style is engaging and relational; I am interested in getting to know YOU. My role is to listen to your point-of-view and offer feedback and direction in a supportive way that encourages you to explore your circumstances, raise your awareness, and then make changes to move forward toward a more fulfilling life. I believe all of my clients have the capacity to take control of their circumstances, and it is my job to lead you inwards to access that strength and ability.

Our work will start with taking time to develop a trusting relationship where you will feel empowered to take healthy risks and uncover strengths, some of which you may not have been aware existed! We will identify resources and practice tools and strategies that will build competence and confidence in you. Together in therapy, we will create momentum to achieve your goals. My favorite part: The gift of therapy leaves you with a toolbox that will forever be yours to use as you continue to grow into different phases of life.

Heidi has been wonderful with not only her advice but with tools to work through all situations.

Heidi's approach is compassionate and encouraging, but also very solutions oriented. She helps you explore issues, while keeping your perspective grounded. Then she recommends tools that you can use to navigate life outside of the website. I've found her to have been a huge help in my life during difficult times.

Heidi is a great listener and takes the time to hear me out before giving input and always asks questions if she needs clarity before giving her input. She always helps me get back on the positive track and is worth every minute of our sessions, I highly recommend her!

I found Heidi to be super grounding in her approach, patient and self empowering. I'm grateful for the structure through tools and support.

Heidi listens and responds with thoughtful, actionable advice. She communicates consistently and is an excellent resource to guide people to learn more about their own issues.

She has been helpful and we are still getting to know each other

Written by S.A. on Sep 13, 2020 after counseling with Heidi for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and trauma and abuse

I came to Heidi with anxieties she was easy to confide in about my issues. She uses an approach that allows me to help myself when she's not available and continuously sends me helpful advice throughout the week. I would strongly recommend Heidi

Written by S.T. on Sep 07, 2020 after counseling with Heidi for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Heidi is a great therapist, and in short time, has helped me tremendously! She really listens and genuinely cares about her clients and their progress. She provides an open space free of judgement and allows you to work through your feelings/emotions with guidance. I'd highly recommend her to anyone!

Written by C.A. on Sep 03, 2020 after counseling with Heidi for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, eating disorders, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Heidi is so empathetic while still being grounded and realistic! I feel like she understands everything I'm trying to explain, and she's so compassionate, but she also knows when to give me a kick in the butt when I need it :) I feel like every session I come away with tools and perspective shifts that are incredibly useful for the week ahead. Each session feels like a journey- I'm the captain, but Heidi is the navigator, helping me around obstacles, rough waves, and storms to arrive at a safe destination. I feel like I'm constantly working towards becoming my true self- and Heidi has been absolutely instrumental in this process.

Written by T.R. on Aug 31, 2020 after counseling with Heidi for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and anger management

Heidi is caring and attentive. She has provided me with numerous specific tools to make positive changes. She has made me comfortable discussing even difficult things, and I am so grateful for her. In particular, I appreciate her insights into the things that are often difficult for me to see in myself and her ability to articulate them in ways I can relate to.

She’s very, supportive, honest, and real.

Written by D.A. on Aug 15, 2020 after counseling with Heidi for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

I only had a short time to work with Heidi due to financial constraints but in a short period of time she was able to make a really big difference in how I am feeling. Heidi is very friendly and approachable and has great, practical suggestions on how to make positive changes and improvements to your life. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Heidi to anyone here on BetterHelp.

Written by L.O. on Aug 12, 2020 after counseling with Heidi for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and grief

Heidi was great to work with through betterhelp! I really wasn't sure how I would like "speaking" to someone about such personal things through a computer screen, but it turned out to be just what I needed. I am very thankful for the strategies she encouraged me to use for daily activities and to cope with different things I am going through in life. I highly recommend working with Heidi!

Written by E.I. on Jul 20, 2020 after counseling with Heidi for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, self esteem, and coaching

I only was able to work with Heidi for a short period of time, but in that time, she reignited my belief in effective counselling. She listens well, is clearly educated and knowledgeable in her profession and takes the time to make sure she and I are connecting outside of our sessions which has been so helpful. I would highly recommend her!
