About Heidi Roselle, LPCC, PMH-C
Heidi Roselle (she/her), founder of Onward Healing Counseling & Wellness, is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC 9161), Certified EMDR therapist and EDMR Approved Consultant, registered school counselor, and experienced maternal mental health clinician. Heidi holds a master’s degree in Clinical Counseling from Montclair State University and a bachelor’s degree in Women & Gender Studies from Rutgers University. She draws on her diverse clinical background in order to help restore clients' sense of peace and well-being.
Heidi understands and appreciates the interconnection of mind, body, and spirit, and thus the importance of helping clients nurture all aspects of themselves to achieve vibrancy and health. She understands deeply how emotional blocks can adversely affect one's physical and spiritual well-being, and how pain strongly and negatively impacts mental and emotional health. Firmly grounded in the 8-phase protocol of EMDR therapy as her theoretical orientation and treatment modality, Heidi helps clients to reprocesses traumatic or upsetting experiences that wreak havoc and block psychoemotional healing. Heidi sees her clients as "whole persons" with tremendous strengths. This strengths-based paradigm, in conjunction with EMDR therapy, comes together to produce a powerful and potent healing method to free clients from the grips of trauma, anxieties, and barriers to healing.
Heidi brings immense empathy, compassion and understanding to her work. She is particularly passionate about working with transgender clients, clients experiencing chronic pelvic pain, and with birthing people who have experienced trauma during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Heidi also prides herself on being a culturally sensitive therapist who welcomes all clients regardless of sexual orientation, race, gender, age, religion, disability, etc. She views each client as an expert in their own experience of culture, and looks to the individual to help her understand the meaning of culture and its impact on their identity.
