"My work experience includes over 40 years in the field of counseling and almost 30 years teaching in higher education (obviously many of these concurrently!). My main interest in counseling is what makes it effective and enables people to change and grow personally, relationally and spiritually. I enjoy reading research on human behavior and passing on this information to my students and clients. Helping people get a greater understanding and increased control of their lives is a central goal. I am a professor of counseling in the MA program at Western and work part-time at the A New Day Counseling center."

"Starting therapy can be daunting, so I encourage you to reach out, even if you're uncertain where to start. I've witnessed profound impacts in my work with people, where shame becomes self acceptance and overwhelm becomes relief and ease. I welcome everyone who wants to work with me, and especially welcome those who may not have felt comfortable in therapy before, possibly due to experiencing marginality, societal oppression, or being shy. I also tend to work well with over achievers, sensitive introverts, and perfectionists struggling to find a stable sense of self worth. My practice is anti oppression and trauma informed."

"In the hustle of our daily lives, it can be difficult to tune into ourselves and notice the ways that our work, stress, relationships, and responsibilities are affecting us. We can find ourselves feeling unsettled or unhappy and not have the space to move into a better understanding of what in our lives needs to change. To overcome this, many people find it helpful to have a space dedicated to deepening their understanding of themselves and their emotions. Therapy provides a unique space to develop your understanding of yourself and respond to life's challenges with curiosity, compassion, and patience."

If you are facing a life change you could be experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression as you work to adapt in the new landscape. You may be dealing with an expected change that is creating disruption and challenging your normal coping ability. Or, if it is an unexpected event, feeling unprepared, in shock, and reeling."

"Now accepting new clients. We are many things as human beings and our needs are complex but our drive to have a sense of belonging, empathic connection and attunement with another human being is on the top of the list. Life even for the most fortunate is full of traumatic experience, loss and emotional vulnerability. Most of us never learn how to metabolize or digest these outer and inner experiences. Some of these life crisis's that bring us to therapy are really growth waiting to happen or what I call Post-Traumatic Growth."

Therefore, I assess and treat the client within the context of all of those systems--individual (body/mind/heart/spirit), couple, family, school, work, community, and so forth. Techniques from several different theory models are woven into the "systemic" framework, allowing me to provide an individualized therapy experience for each client."

I use a DBT-informed, cognitive-behavioral approach in my counseling practice, and strive to help clients identify and progress toward goals that are personal, meaningful, and move them beyond surviving and into thriving. My counseling strategies are employed using a nonjudgmental stance to help clients uncover obstacles to change, combined with acceptance strategies when change seems out of reach. UPDATED AUGUST 22, 2018: I will begin accepting new clients in mid-September 2018. If you are interested in scheduling an intake session, I am best reached (and can reply most quickly) by e-mail: heidijolson@hushmail.com. "
