More about me

Licensing: LCPC
Years in Practice: 10
State: IL

Hello, My name is Scott Heise and I am a Licensed mental Health Therapist located in Freeport, Illinois. I have over ten years experience as a therapist, in the Community Mental Health model. I earned my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology Trinity International University on Deerfield Illinois in 2009. My experience includes working with individuals with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-esteem, career challenges, mood disorders, post traumatic stress, personality disorders, substance use issues, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I have also worked with clients who struggle with stress, loss, abuse/neglect, and the frustrations of life.

I would describe my approach as empathetic, goal oriented, and client centered. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing and Logo Therapy to help my clients set goals and objectives, work through their traumas, and feel empowered once they have met their goals.

I enjoy helping people though their challenges in life. If you so desire, I can can provide counseling from a Christian perspective helping people and encouraging them to go deeper with God. I provide a warm and non-judgmental environment, using humor and prayer to work together and reach your goals. Everyone deserves to have someone they can trust and talk to; let me be that person for you. I look forward to working with you to help you meet your therapeutic goals.

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.

Scott has been a fantastic help as I identified and worked through personal issues and addictions. He was always there with a kind heart to listen and offer his words of encouragement and helpful suggestions. He truly cares about his clients as a real person and it shows in his work.

Scott Heise is a great therapist. He is a great listener and provides many perspectives. I had a successful period of therapy which allowed me to grow by means of reflection, questioning, and identifying behaviors and patterns. I would work with him again when I am ready to rejoin Betterhelp. I gave him a chance without any judgements and it turned out to be the correct decision.

Scott helped me very much. He is a good listener. Always listening with patience and empathy. He was my trusted guide through my journey to becoming a happier me. He taught me many tools to deal with my traumas and now I feel much stronger; like I could take on the world! I'm in a much better head space now thanks to Scott. Highly recommend.
