My Story

Heidi is a non-Indigenous ally who is passionate about supporting Indigenous and non-Indigenous clients using a holistic, client-centred approach that seeks to empower individuals to recognize their strengths and values, heal mental and emotional wounds, and promote growth, resilience and change.

Heidi is a Registered Psychologist in the provinces of Alberta and Newfoundland & Labrador. After completing her Masters degree in Counselling Psychology, Heidi’s practice has focused on clinical psychology, formal assessment and educational psychology. She has dedicated a large portion of her career to learning about and supporting Indigenous populations and has developed a deep respect and appreciation for the cultural values, traditions and practices of the different Indigenous communities she has been involved with both professionally and personally.
