"Heidi Wilson is a kind, understanding, and educated counselor. She has helped me so very much in such a short time. She has a way about her that I believe anyone counseling with her would feel very comfortable. When I leave after a session with her, I feel I could conquer almost anything. I feel important, respected, and so much better vs when I walked in. I believe she will be the utmost successful in her field. I trust her and she is always on time. Very warm & respectful staff".

"I started seeing Dr. Wilson at the beginning of the summer after realizing I had a problem with anxiety and depression. She was extremely welcoming and understanding. She always made me feel comfortable opening up and it was clear she was invested in helping me overcome my anxiety. She understood the goal to manage my anxiety without the need for therapy sessions. I know I couldn't have gotten to where I am without her, I would definitely recommend her service for anyone needing therapy".
