About Me

If you are here, you are hurting somehow. You want to heal yourself. You want to heal your family. You want that hurt and stress to go away and leave you alone so that you are free to thrive again. Wish you had a magic wand? So do I. But I do have a flashlight. I use it to put a spotlight on your strengths, to shine light in the dark corners of your life and to guide you through difficult journeys. And I know when to turn it off, so that you can find your own light.

You’ll use your courage, commitment and knowledge. You are the expert on yourself, your pain, and what motivates you to grow. Teach me what you know.

I’ll use my empathy, education and experience. I have a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from Smith College and I am independently licensed in the state of Georgia. I have five years of experience working with both children and adults as a therapist and three years experience as a parent coach. I am skilled in cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, narrative therapy, systems theory when working with families, and positive discipline when helping parents. I have experience helping people with a wide range of issues, including improving self esteem, adjusting to life's stresses, family relationships, parenting difficulties, anxiety and depression.

I will also use my belief in self-determination to help you remember that you are worthy, and that you have full power over your own life and your healing.

Written by P.A. on May 26, 2018 after counseling with Heidi for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and family

I can't speak highly enough of Heidi. She has helped me tremendously! She has helped me with what I needed at the time and also helped unmask things I didn't know I needed help with. I've never felt as comfortable and confident as I do now, thanks to her help. She's given me incredible tools to deal with anxiety and emotions and has helped me immensely with my self esteem and sense of self. She is very open, honest and incredibly effective at pinpointing and expressing issues clearly, and finding direct ways to work on them. 10/10!
