Hi, there! My name is Heidi Weaver and am in my last semester of graduate school at Northern Vermont University, where I am working towards obtaining my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am currently a master's level intern at Healthy Minds in the St. Albans office, under the supervision of Bert Munger, LCMHC, LADC.
I view counseling as a process in which you, the client, and I, the Counselor Intern come to understand and trust one another, work as a team to explore and define present problem situations, develop future goals for an improved life and work in a systematic fashion toward realizing those goals.
Areas of mental health I focus on are, but are not limited to, substance addiction and recovery, trauma, anxiety, depression, anger management, self harm and suicidal ideation.
I approach counseling from a cognitive-behavioral perspective that focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems.
I work with adults (18 years and older) through individual therapy sessions. I am currently accepting new clients and look forward to working with you!
