Cauley & Associates - psychotherapy group practice

Mission Statement

To help others help themselves by providing positive outcomes contributing to hope, growth and those ‘aha’ moments.

Our Team

Cauley & Associates, Inc., began its psychotherapy group practice in 2004.  Within our practice, we cover a wide-range of services/issues that are common in everyday life. We have a diverse group of clinicians with multiple focuses, specialties, and backgrounds. Prior to scheduling an appointment, we will have an initial consultation over the phone to get a sense of the issue and determine if we are a good fit or if a referral should be provided.

Biography

In the therapeutic process, my goal for my client is two part: create a safe and therapeutic environment allowing my client to explore emotional blocks and heal past wounds. Additionally, setting measurable, realistic and achievable goals allows my client to work toward future change. We work together to create an interactive therapeutic process. I believe that through the process of gaining insight and awareness, my client will develop healthy coping skills to overcome obstacles in their life after therapy has terminated and not foster dependency.

Heidi provides a compassionate attitude of non-judgment and respect for her clients, offering practical strategies to calm anxiety, transform difficult emotions, and foster greater self-acceptance. She uses an integrated approach, which includes cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, positive psychology, and an awareness of the impact of early relationships.
