“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
Heidi Anderson is the mental health consultant for Shields & Stripes.
Heidi Anderson, LCSW, PsyD is the mental health consultant for Shields & Stripes Inc. She is the co-founder and president of a non-profit group practice, The Healing Impact, which targets reclaiming lives after trauma. She is married to an adventurous and energetic pilot in the Air Force Special Operations Command and is the mother of an equally energetic four-year-old daughter named Lily.
Her research and clinical expertise center on evidence based modalities that utilize neuroscience to facilitate adaptive functioning post-trauma. She has spoken nationally on the subject of healing from trauma through adaptive therapy techniques and has had the honor of leading clinical research groups focused on integrating trauma therapy in military populations.
The sacrifice of service professionals is often overlooked as they neglect their own care in the pursuit of helping and protecting others. Too often their stories are minimized to fit one model of treatment that is standard protocol in order to return to the job at hand. In joining with Shields & Stripes, Heidi is honored to offer clinically backed modalities that serve the whole person in their personal journey of recovery.
