It is my passion to partner with therapists and other adults who find themselves depleted, exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious and frustrated with no space to creatively and couragously nurture their own wants and needs. I use a psychodynamic approach in my practice to help you make sense of the behavioral patterns that lead you away from what keeps you from feeling happy. I teach Self/Ego awareness to bring the unconscious to the conscious where action can be taken to change what is causing you harm and keeping you stuck. I align closely with and utilize the principals of ACT and IFS and believe wholeheartedly that you have all the answers within you already and it is my duty to help you discover them. I consider it an honor to have the opportunity to support you as you move toward your most authentic identity where anxiety, overwhelm, and resentment cannot survive long because the space becomes filled with love, compassion, and acceptance which are truly powerful forces. I am licensed in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida. I have 22 years of professional Social Work experience; 12 of those years have been under full clinical Social Work licensure. I am trained in various evidenced based practices, however, those I primarily use, have focused my training in and believe in for relief of mental health difficulty are ACT and IFS. I have worked across populations and in diverse environments throughout my 22 year career which helps me be a seasoned, dynamic and well-rounded therapist. I believe in meeting you where you are at in your healing journey and using my unique collection of expertise to help you get to where you want to go. I look forward to partnering with you and helping you be unapologetically and wholeheartedly you. Heidi V. Bailey, LCSW

I have been working in the field of mental health for the past 6 years, with prior experience through volunteer work. I specialize in CBT as my 'go to' technique because if you can change your thinking, you can change your emotion, you can change your action.

I received my Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health and my Bachelors in Arts in Psychology at UNC-Greensboro. I have experience in working with ages ranging from 3-90, helping client's with issues such as attention and impulse control, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, self-harm, suicidal ideation, relationship issues, managing expectations, developing discipline in daily life, setting life goals, self-esteem and self-image. In my 6 years of counseling, I have worked with individuals, couples and families, I have worked as a therapist within the foster care system in Nashville, TN. Working with children entering foster care and working with their biological family's and foster family's. I believe we are all capable of change, that at times, we need a little bit of help to initiate that change. We all can use a listening ear, and someone who is objective. I want to help you enjoy life, to want change and growth, to build skills to manage what life may throw at you. I want you to feel that you have someone who is walking with you through your struggles/concerns and when you reach the other side of that struggle, know you are stronger.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Sneedville counselor?

Before seeing your Sneedville therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Sneedville.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Sneedville licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Sneedville counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Sneedville, Tennessee can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
