Finding peace of mind during stressful times may feel impossible. Oftentimes, we seek to escape painful emotions and difficult life circumstances through drinking alcohol, gambling or illicit substance use only to find out it doesn't help to lessen the pain we feel inside.

Hello! My name is Heidi and I'm a mom and a veteran of the US Air Force. I enjoy meeting and working with people who want a better life for themselves and for their family. Life is stressful and many times situations or relationships are thrust upon us that we have little control over, but those who seek out help, who want to learn healthier ways to cope and who want relief from the rut of negative thought patterns or relationships are the people I'm here for. The only necessities are to reach out for help and be ready to start on your path to wellness!

Are you experiencing feelings of anxiety, a depressed mood and don’t know where to turn to? Asking for help is hard. With all of life’s challenges you do not have to go through it alone. Working with a trained, licensed therapist is the first step towards asking for and receiving help. As a therapist, I focus on people’s thoughts and behavior patterns to help address the negative repeated patterns in their life. For many and most people, our early childhood years play a vital role in shaping our learned behaviors and leave us with trauma we still carry as adults.

I am dedicated to working with clients grappling with anxiety, depression, trauma, women's issues and LGBTQIA concerns. My shared vocations of psychotherapist and yoga therapist/teacher enable me to take a broad view of healing. As such, I am dedicated to fostering opportunities of holistic wellness by offering evidence-based psychotherapy; and when traditional psychotherapeutic treatment is not sufficient, the embodiment of yoga may be an attractive adjunctive strategy.

In addition, I try to help my clients achieve mental, emotional and relational health by building on the strengths already present in their lives. I firmly believe that people have the ability to make positive changes in their lives, and I see it as my job to help clients identify and traverse the steps necessary to achieving these changes.

What type of West Chester 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in West Chester?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
