Heike has been helping clients with brain injury for almost a decade working within the Head Injury Assessment and Treatment Services program offered through WorkSafeBC. Throughout this time, she has specialized in cognitive rehabilitation therapy (CRT) to allow her to also address any thinking/ memory difficulties that often underlie the emotional difficulties people experience following an acquired brain injury or any condition that can affect cognitive functioning (e.g. chemotherapy). Her approach to brain injury counselling draws mainly from the humanistic and behavioural approaches including Rogerian (i.e. Client-centered; Gestalt, Existential) and cognitive behavioural therapy while utilizing the principles of the biopsychosocial framework.
Therefore, depending on a client’s specific concerns, Heike is able to address not only the emotional difficulties that clients experience as consequence of a brain injury (e.g. traumatic brain injury/ concussion, brain infection, stroke, brain tumor, chemotherapy), but also the cognitive difficulties that often underlie the feelings of irritability, frustration and/ or depression, grief, anxiety, and loneliness/ social isolation.
She has received her MSc in Clinical Applications in Psychology from Leicester University, UK, and has also studied cognitive neuroscience at the Brain Research Center at the University of British Columbia.
