Who we are

Heather Edwards Psychotherapy in New YorkHeather Edwards is a New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Board Certified Coach, & National Certified Counselor.

Welcome! I specialize in helping people reduce anxiety and depression, and gracefully navigate difficult life transitions.

Mindfulness, EMDR, and CBT are tools I weave into the work with clients to calm the central nervous system, retrain thinking patterns, and integrate split or stuck emotions.

Individual Psychotherapy, Couples Counseling, and Life & Corporate Coaching are skillfully provided through my private practice located at 1 Park Avenue, NY, NY 10016, inside Oasis Day Spa.

Since beginning my Psychology training in 1987, and completing all requirements for state licensure in 1998, I’ve worked with hundreds of individuals and families facing a myriad of challenging and traumatic events.

My first job in mental health was as a Child Care Worker at a children’s home for orphans in PA. From there, I shifted into home-based family therapy and ultimately to Community Based Mental Health & Inpatient Psychiatry in Chicago, and Managed Care in NY reviewing clinical hospital treatment plans nationwide. I opened my Manhattan Private Practice in 2009.

My guilty pleasure is writing wellness articles published on PsychologyToday.com & my blog.
