Bronwyn Heiss, LMHC, LMFT
Bronwyn Heiss, LMHC, LMFT, is a licensed psychotherapist specializing in treating couples, individuals, and groups. She graduated from Tufts University with a double major in English and Women’s Studies. Bronwyn then obtained a Master of Science from Barry University, in their dual specialization program of Mental Health Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy.
Bronwyn enjoys helping individuals and couples to have happy, healthy, and fulfilling relationships with lives filled with purpose and meaning. A goal of therapy is for her clients to thrive within their own personal experience. Bronwyn takes a systemic, Solution-Focused and Narrative approach when working with individuals. CBT modalities can also be integrated into therapy. She especially enjoys life coaching women when dealing with transitional times. For example, times such as trying to conceive, the transition to motherhood, the “empty nest” phase, and other life changes that are unique to women. Bronwyn’s strength is her warm, empathetic manner which helps clients feel comfortable talking to her. She tailors her therapy to meet the client where he or she is and values the client as the expert of his or her own life.
Bronwyn also enjoys working with couples. She has completed Gottman Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 training. This evidence based approach was created by Dr. John and Julie Gottman, with more than 40 years of research as their foundation. Their research has led to specific interventions to help couples learn to be relationship “masters,” as they learn to reconnect on a deeper level, communicate in a positive manner, and decrease negativity surrounding conflict. Topics such as premarital counseling, building rituals of connection, infidelity, trust, parenting, and conflict resolution are addressed depending on the specific needs of the couple.
