About Me

Hello!
My name is Heidi Shock and I am a mental health and substance abuse therapist with over fourteen years experience with high-risk clients primarily in the criminal justice system. I have a undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan and a Master's degree in Social Work from Michigan State University. I provide a laid-back, non-judgmental and safe space that helps individuals open up about issues creating barriers in their lives. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, abuse, mood disorders, personality disorders, substance abuse, ADHD, grief/loss, etc. I have worked with individuals of all demographics, age ranges from teens-older adults. My therapeutic approach combines Client-Centered, Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative and Rational-Emotive Therapy. It takes courage to take those first steps toward the changes you want to see happen in your life. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Heidi has been a valuable support from the very beginning. I can relate to her & she has very good advice & realistic/practical suggestions. I wish I had started with Better Help sooner!

I find Heidi to be friendly, very supportive and has lots of material to share that I've found really helpful. She's very easy to talk to and she really listens to what you're saying. She's exactly what I've needed in a therapist.

I love Heidi. She came into my life at the perfect time. I had just lost my cousin to suicide and 7 days later, lost my gramma to cancer and she matched me that night. It was a miracle. She is the best counsellor I’ve ever had and I plan on staying with her for a very very long time. Maybe forever. Thank you so much for everything heidi❤️

I have been having therapy with Heidi for a couple of weeks now and have found her to be helpful and insightful. This is my first experience of talking therapy and she has helped me to work through some things already. Not to say the issues are gone, but I certainly feel less hopeless. The support via text with worksheets and general chats has also been a great support occasionally through the week. I recommend Heidi’s therapy sessions highly.
