Her approach allows individuals to discover ways to tell their own stories, express their feelings, and achieve growth. Through her deeply relational approach to therapy, Heidi offers empathy and acceptance to clients as they work to explore the depth of their inner experience allowing for growth in self-esteem, emotional expression, self-regulation skills, creativity and spontaneity and the capacity to play a diverse range of life roles.

She approaches training with creativity and passion, focusing on ways helping professionals can grow in client relatedness, skill building and finding their own creativity and spontaneity.
