About Heather Corwin, PhD

Psychological Fellow

Dr. Corwin's diverse background and experiences inform her therapeutic approach infused with unconditional positive regard. Specialties include working with actors and performers, and people looking for a more physical approach to incorporate in therapy. She is a mental health provider who utilizes integrative approaches to create a foundation of wellness; this includes sensory awareness and body connection to explore how impulses translate into our everyday actions.  People are complex. Body sensations, feelings, thoughts and expectations converge to inform how we see and engage with the world. 


​Dr. Corwin's expertise and research is in emotional intelligence, which includes empathy, emotional regulation, how we see the world, and communication.  These skills help people connect with others as they intend. Our early relationships with caregivers, also known as  Attachment theory, form how we operate with others and are the foundation of interpersonal relationships.  Performing arts is Dr. Corwin's background, which helps bring playfulness and humor to the therapeutic work, with mindfulness and creativity.

Therapeutic goals will include a broad base of techniques to allow us to explore your world, and to identify and redefine who you want to be in your most whole self. Being in relationship with yourself and with others can open you to the skills and awareness required to live your life on your terms with the joy you crave.
