ABOUT WELLINGTON MARRIAGE COUNSELOR DR. HEFTY:
Originally from Miami, I received my undergraduate in psychology from the University of Florida with a minor in sociology in 1990, and my doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Florida in 1998. In addition, I completed a 2 year post- graduate training program in marriage and family therapy in 1999 from the Gainesville Family Institute. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MT 1729) and Certified Addictions Professional.
My professional experience includes over 20 years of clinical experience, former adjunct professor at the University of Florida, Department of Counselor Education providing graduate instruction in marriage and family therapy as well as extensive experience as the director of child, adolescent and family programs. Additionally, I have extensive experience in the area of addictions treatment including clinical, administrative and grant writing.
Generally, my style is very comfortable. Utilizing a variety of theoretical approaches, my style is best described as both health affirming and solution focused. This approach frequently results in rapid changes as it borrows from individual and couples’ strengths. Also, my focus is multi-leveled: on the individual, the relational dynamics as well as the context in which they exist. In addition to strengths, client culture and spirituality, if relevant, are potential resources utilized in my therapy.
I maintain day, evening and weekend appointments to best meet the needs of the couples and families that I serve. I accept most major forms of insurance.
