Clinical Supervisor & Licensed Therapist
Christy Heyn, LPC, has extensive experience working with adults, children/adolescents, and
families in using the therapeutic space to address the challenges such as depression, anxiety, trauma, or interpersonal issues. She believes that the most vital part of therapy is the development of a therapeutic relationship in order to build resilience and restore hope in a safe, accepting and nonjudgmental environment.
It is through this relationship that clients can have the trust to work on themselves from an honest place within a gentle and supportive environment. She does not offer a one-size-fits-all style but believes in tailoring her treatment approach based on the specific needs and strengths of each client.
Ms. Heyn has specialized training and a particular passion for working with individuals who have experienced physical and/or sexual abuse, neglect, or other trauma. She has also worked with individuals who are coping with grief and loss, generalized anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and adjustment to other life stressors. Christy utilizes an integrative approach to therapy, focusing on theoretical orientations which include psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and family systems concepts in an approach that supports her belief in the potential for clients to achieve insight, hope, personal growth, and healthier ways of overcoming conflicts or difficulties.
Christy is a Licensed Professional Counselor with almost a decade of experience working in a variety of settings within the mental health field, educational programs for at-risk adolescents, and in private practice with a variety of clientele. She earned her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Clinical Mental Health from Troy University in 2010 and is a Nationally Certified Counselor as well as a member of the American Counseling Association.
