Higgins recently completed a manuscript, Resilient Women : Hope in Action, based on her clinical work.
"I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families from age eighteen through every adult decade. My style is interactive, collaborative, and non-hierarchical. My emphasis is on promoting psychological resilience by helping my clients expand their copings skills in the manner of resilient individuals. You do not have to be unusually healthy or come from a terrible past in order to benefit from the lessons of the resilient. I am equally comfortable and conversant with agony as much as ecstasy. If you are motivated to change through therapy, you are highly likely to be a lot happier with yourself and your life over time."

I have a specialization in supporting women dealing with postpartum depression, infertility and coping with the birth of a premature infant and supporting working mothers.
Every individual possesses an internal core of resilience, strength and determination. My goal in treatment is to help individuals to recognize, embrace, and utilize these attributes to navigate the challenges they face and to achieve peak emotional fitness. Emotional fitness is a state in which the mind is capable of staying away from negative thoughts and can focus on creative and constructive tasks. Therapy must focus on and nurture our mind, body and soul to achieve the totality of emotional fitness. Therapy will allow us to embark on this mission together, guided by your individualized life goals.

Note: Email is the easiest way to reach me for faster reply. I am a therapist who is passionate about helping my clients regain (or maybe gain for the first time) a true sense of self. Addiction, old behavior patterns, unhealthy coping mechanisms... they can all derail us from discovering our authenticity and our purpose in life. I have experience in helping clients of all backgrounds learn to take power back from alcohol and substance use disorders, behavioral addictions, anxiety disorders, and depression.

I guide people to create positive change in their lives, and understand this is often a difficult and overwhelming process. My focus is to assist people with creative problem solving, to stay goal-oriented, and to ensure you feel validated and truly heard so you may reach your goals and move from "stuck" to empowered. I use multiple approaches, such as CBT, DBT, narrative therapy, and mindfulness. Achieving balance in one's life is a skill, and by using different modalities (art, visualization, and sound). I adapt interventions to meet your individual needs.

We only get one life: no re-dos, no re-ups. Now is the time for you to walk into the healing and freedom you so desperately seek but are afraid to reach for. Maybe it's the past pains and hurts, abuses and traumas that continue to affect you today. Maybe it's the weight of depression or anxiety. Whatever it is- today.is.the.day. To that end, there are many therapeutic modalities I work within. It is not the modality so much that matters but the match between client and clinician. I may be the “expert” in psychology but you are the expert in your life and we need each other to make the counseling process a success.

Accepting New Clients - Memories from the past flash across your mind – bits and pieces of the worst thing that ever happened to you. You find yourself thinking about all the things you wish you could have done differently and playing out all of the "coulda, shoulda, wouldas". You're feeling constantly on edge, people tell you you're a control freak, and you just can't seem to ever let your guard down. It's exhausting and you're fed up with feeling this way. You're willing to put in the work to feel better - if you only just knew where to start or how to make yourself feel better. You need help, but just don't know how to start.

While I treat a wide array of issues, I maintain a primary focus on the treatment of eating disorders, women 's issues, anxiety, depression and supporting students transitioning to college.
The pursuit of mental health wellness, recovery or personal change can be a hopeful and fulfilling endeavor. However, pursuing change can equally feel anxiety provoking or outside of one’s comfort zone. This is particularly true when change may mean altering or letting go of thoughts and behaviors that have felt protective or familiar. It is expected that one may enter into therapy with mixed feelings about the process and desired outcomes. It is my intention to partner with individuals at any stage of readiness to better understand her needs and develop a unique plan of treatment specifically tailored to meet those needs.

What type of Salem mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Salem?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
