About me

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 helped me a lot. She has an incredible way of understanding and being empathetic, and makes me question the belief system that was hurting me so much.
She makes me feel comfortable with therapy and is a lifesaver.
