More about me

Licensing: LMFT
Years in Practice: 10
State: CA

As an experienced therapist I appreciate the energy it takes to confront issues that feel overwhelming without clear solutions. I take my role seriously in facilitating healing. I care about my clients and do my best to minimize any unpleasant symptoms you are experiencing while we work on strategies that move you towards a more satisfying life. I am authentic, non-judgmental, and direct in my approach. If you are feeling emotionally overwhelmed, stuck, anxious, or have tried to make things better without lasting success, I can help.

Connecting with the right therapist is the first step. I have been helping others shift their perceptions, heal from emotional pain, and reach their personal goals for over ten years. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in the treatment of complex trauma, PTSD, substance use, and mood and anxiety-related disorders. I have extensive experience working with interpersonal conflict including domestic violence. I work with individuals, couples, and families seeking relief from the troubling effects of trauma, the negative impacts of unhealthy communication styles, the harmful consequences of substance use, and challenges associated with change.

My clinical specialties include treating victims of violent and sexual crimes, adult survivors of early childhood traumas, and substance use specific treatment and recovery. I value and respect diversity and consider myself an LGBTQIA ally. I look forward to hearing from you.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Heidi is incredibly insightful, kind, honest and professional. I’ve been working with Heidi for over a year through some of that biggest life transitions I’ve undergone and I can’t speak highly enough.

Heidi is an amazing therapist. We hit it off in our first session - I could tell she understood me and my challenges and was committed to helping me where I need it.

Heidi has been such a wonderful support to me over the last 6 months. She is highly empathetic and really understands how our nervous systems can be impacted by trauma and really healed me apply some tools to help in real time situations. I will definitely continue counseling with Heidi in the future. Thank you so much Heidi!

Heidi is hands down the best therapist I have ever worked with (and I'm not new to therapy, so I don't say that lightly). She is clearly very knowledgeable and experienced, she is incredibly open-minded and accepting, and she has the kind of personality that is comforting and easy to talk to. No matter what the topic is, she always knows just how to respond, always asks just the right questions. Her listening skills and attention to detail are above and beyond anyone else I know. I never have to repeat myself and she will even bring up little details of things I told her a long time ago and make a connection with the present in a way I would not have thought of myself. I love how personal her approach feels and how she offers alternative strategies that I can personalise and be creative with. I leave every session feeling very accomplished and like I have a LOT to think about during the next week. I can go on and on, but what it comes down to is this: Heidi is THE BEST. I always feel heard by her, seen for who I really am, and supported in anything I do. Thank you so much, Heidi!

Heidi is phenomenal. She understands my goals, helps me to focus on how to get the most out of my work and has helped me through the rigorous amounts of self work and growth I’ve been needing to do!

Thank you so much! You gave me advice that I will be using for my whole life I hope we can meet regularly! I’m so happy with who I was paired up with and I strongly believe in betterhelp!

I am so grateful to have Heidi as my counselor. She has not only helped me to tackle my current problems, she is also helping me to be a better, more compassionate, and thoughtful person. I really appreciate Heidi!

One! I was so incredibly blown away on Heidi's insight within the first 10 minutes of our first session. She is intuitive, genuine, knowledgable, basically everything you could ask for in a counselor. Things were beginning to feel hopeless and I knew I had to do something. I'm so glad I tried online counseling and I'm so grateful to have had Heidi assigned to me. I feel like I can take anything that life wants to throw at me because I know she's in my corner. Thank you so much Hiedi, you are amazing!

Best of the best.

C.H.·Apr 14, 2020


I really love working with Heidi, she directly responds to what I have said and provides information, not always telling me everything, so I can try to put it together on my own a bit (perhaps it's just me reading ahead in my mind). I really, really love it. I accidentally discovered some very interesting things I really didn't understand about myself. Heidi has been one of the best people I've worked with in my life, and I deeply appreciate her time.

M.I.·Mar 27, 2020


I was going through a tough time emotionally after being passed over for promotion I deserved at work. Heidi helped me by providing mindfulness and other excercises and uplifting proverbs. I’m in a better place now since meeting with her weekly.

C.H.·Mar 11, 2020


Heidi is very insightful and intuitive. Been a great help in helping me process and problem solve

S.H.·Feb 13, 2020


Heidi is very understanding, kind, easy to speak with, and always provides great help and solutions to my problems. After every session I feel like I've not only learned a lot, but have also felt more peace with myself since day 1. I'm very happy I was paired with her and hope to continue having more sessions with her in the future!

N.A.·Jan 28, 2020
