Or maybe you/your child are feeling down or struggling with the demands of school, work, or relationships.

Dr. Heidi has worked for over 25 years with children, adolescents, parents, families and adults of all ages; Getting to know extraordinary people and their stories. She personally knows the demands of many roles. Over the years, she has worn many hats - wife, mom, student, psychologist, researcher, friend, and community volunteer. In busier years, her friends would question how she accomplished what she did…and there were many days where she had more than her share of apprehension and fear. She knows how hard it can get when things don't fall into place exactly as we'd like or when the demands of one of our roles pull us in a new direction. It can be really challenging! When she grew weary and frustrated in completing her responsibilities, she started studying how to do it better (along with other coping skills). She read endless volumes, participated in therapy, and sought the wisdom of others. She learned a lot about how to manage things better - wisdom that has helped her stay peaceful and satisfied with her life. This has also helped those who join her in therapy. She looks forward to hearing about you and the many hats that you wear.
