As an experienced therapist, I have worked with a great many individuals and families who are going through difficult times. I appreciate the energy it takes to confront issues that feel overwhelming without clear solutions. I understand the unique challenges that face teenagers and parents alike. I take my role seriously in facilitating better understanding, communication, and healing. I provide strategies throughout the therapeutic process that will increase compassion, decrease stress, and move all involved towards a more satisfying outcome. I am authentic, non-judgmental, and direct in my approach. If you are feeling emotionally overwhelmed, stuck, anxious, or have tried to make things better without lasting success, I can help.
I specialize in the lasting effects of trauma, the negative impacts of unhealthy communication styles, the harmful consequences of substance use, and challenges associated with change.
My clinical specialties include treating victims of violent and sexual crimes, adult survivors of early childhood traumas, teen challenges, and substance use specific treatment and recovery. I value and respect diversity and consider myself an LGBTQIA ally. I look forward to hearing from you.

Heidi has become a trusted resource and partner in getting our family through a tough time.
Very blessed to have come across Heidi as my counselor. I wish I could refer my friends to her directly if they choose to use teen counseling.
Heidi is such a warm and welcoming person and has already helped me understand my past challenges and current challenges with thoughtful conversations in just a few weeks!
She listened and often offered angle of new thinking process which is super helpful
I am so grateful to have Heidi as my counselor. She has not only helped me to tackle my current problems, she is also helping me to be a better, more compassionate, and thoughtful person. I really appreciate Heidi!
One word...wow! I was so incredibly blown away on Heidi's insight within the first 10 minutes of our first session. She is intuitive, genuine, knowledgable, basically everything you could ask for in a counselor. Things were beginning to feel hopeless and I knew I had to do something. I'm so glad I tried online counseling and I'm so grateful to have had Heidi assigned to me. I feel like I can take anything that life wants to throw at me because I know she's in my corner. Thank you so much Hiedi, you are amazing!
Best of the best.
I really love working with Heidi, she directly responds to what I have said and provides information, not always telling me everything, so I can try to put it together on my own a bit (perhaps it's just me reading ahead in my mind). I really, really love it. I accidentally discovered some very interesting things I really didn't understand about myself. Heidi has been one of the best people I've worked with in my life, and I deeply appreciate her time.
I was going through a tough time emotionally after being passed over for promotion I deserved at work. Heidi helped me by providing mindfulness and other excercises and uplifting proverbs. I’m in a better place now since meeting with her weekly.
Heidi is very insightful and intuitive. Been a great help in helping me process and problem solve
Heidi is a thorough listener and quick to understand deep and complex psychological problems. Her calming demeanor and solid expertise is invaluable.
Heidi is very understanding, kind, easy to speak with, and always provides great help and solutions to my problems. After every session I feel like I've not only learned a lot, but have also felt more peace with myself since day 1. I'm very happy I was paired with her and hope to continue having more sessions with her in the future!
Heidi is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She understands exactly where I am coming from and offers effective suggestions.
