Welcome to my website!
I am Dr. Astrid Heathcote and hope you find the information provided here helpful; please feel free to leave questions or comments you may have about my services.
As clinical psychologist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying state of the art and current, research-based therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
In addition to psycho-therapy, I also offer psychological testing for adult/child ADHD, autism-spectrum disorders, "fit for duty" assessment and any other psychological testing needed.
I make every effort to provide you with helpful information regarding a possible diagnosis for depression and anxiety, or any other DSM V diagnosis, however I do believe that everyone is unique and that a psychiatric diagnosis does not define an individual as to what their true potential is; my goal is to uncover not only potential clinical issues but help you with existential life-changing and -challenging periods of your life, so you can face the world with more enthusiasm and passion.
When looking for help with mental health issues or stressors, take your time and ask the potential therapists questions regarding training, treatment philosophy, and possible outcome for treatment; this way your expectations for treatment are clear and can assist in helping your find a good fit for your unique mental health needs.
Please call or email me for an individual-, couples- or family therapy consultation today.
I also provide in-home parent training and speaking engagements to groups.
