Heidi Allen MSW, LCSW
Heidi is a teen counselor, working with teens who are struggling with behavior problems, defiance, ADHD, anxiety, and depression. Heidi is goal-focused in her therapy sessions. She works with her clients and their parents to identify what goals they want to work on in order to make the changes they hope to see.
Heidi uses several therapeutic approaches in her counseling sessions. Her belief is to meet people where they are and assist them with learning the skills to help them cope and make decisions that will be positive for them, both short term and long term. She frequently uses Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, ACT, Solution-Focused Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT).
