About Me

My status as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) allows me to competently deliver individualized clinical and evidence-based approaches to therapy. My main priority is to ensure you get the best of your experience through your own autonomy and growth. I have worked with a diverse population of individuals with specialties in family conflict, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, and anger management. Through these experiences, my appreciation to individualization of each client is an imperative concept in my professional development. I have a strong desire to understand and help impact change, continue education to ensure cutting edge and evidence-based approaches are utilized, and to add life experience in order to increase a client's feeling of being understood and not judged, which all add to heighten the therapeutic experience.

My professional experience includes providing group and individual clinical services to children, adolescents, couples, and adults in a variety of community-based and individual settings. I have worked in agency settings (community and foster care) as well as in private practice. Some behavioral health issues I have experience treating include; however, not exhaustive: depression, stress, anxiety, addictions (sexual), LGBT related issues, grief and loss, domestic violence, intimate partner violence, impulse control, co-dependency, depression, divorce, and many other issues that cause disruption in daily routine.

My educational background includes All But Dissertation (ABD) status for the Doctorate of Education (EdD) in Counselor Educator and Supervision (CES) program with Argosy University of Arlington, VA, with a projected completion date of August 2019. I have earned a Master of Arts in Community Counseling from Argosy University DC Campus; Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology, also from Argosy University DC Campus; Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Cedar Crest College in Allentown, PA; and Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from Cedar Crest College. I am licensed by the state of Pennsylvania to practice as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have specialized training in the following evidence-based protocols: Eco-Systemic Family Therapy (ESFT) from Philadelphia Child Guidance Center (PCGC), and Trauma Focused - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).

I look forward to our partnership in your journey of healing and self-health.

Heidi is an amazing person with a gift for helping others. She has made me feel so comfortable with expressing my concerns and fears. When it comes to the end of our sessions, I actually feel more empowered for the advice she gave me. I would recommend her to anyone!!

Heidi is amazing. Although I'm a new client of hers, she has gone above and beyond to begin helping me with my issues. I really appreciate her dedication and her ability to assist me with my issues.

Heidi is an absolute rockstar. She helped me during a time of difficulty in my life when I was facing a lot of uncertainty. As this was my first time ever having counseling, Heidi made the experience extremely comforting for me. She is personable, professional, caring, relatable, exactly what I needed right now.

Heidi is an amazing counselor and one of Better Help's finest! I was dealing with a recent death in my family as well as some traumatic things from my past. Heidi was able to validate my feeling and help me work through them, helping me recognize the leaps and bounds I was making. Heidi is able make you feel heard and understood and offer advice that is appropriate for your situation(s). I would recommend her to anyone, she really cares!

Heidi is both personable and professional; she has a clear passion for her work. She strives to help me reach my personal goals with an investment that is motivating and compassionate. I am finding it easy to dig into the "messy" stuff with her because of the trust I have in her ethics and the clarity of communication within each step of processing. I am extremely grateful for the progress I've been able to make through the appropriate level of support and guidance available here.

Heidi is great! She let's you feel like you can say anything with no fear. Coming out of your she'll isn't easy for everyone but Heidi shows you different ways to come out and that there are no wrong ways. She is very down to earth. I would recommend her to anyone!

Written by S.H. on Oct 05, 2018 after counseling with Heidi for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Heidi is absolutely incredible. She is funny, kind, skilled, patient and supportive -all the things I really need from a therapist. She doesn't just listen to me idly, she is proactive and really tries to teach me new coping skills to help in my every day life. She encourages me to really fix my problems and address them in a safe, positive, and effective way (when I feel ready). In the short amount of time that I've been meeting with her, I have accomplished more than I would have in a year on my own. She really is an 11/10! And did I mention she's funny?
