Heather Patterson Meyer, PsyD
Dr. Meyer holds master’s degrees in Psychology and Theology as well as a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Fuller Theological Seminary. She is currently working towards certification with the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals to become a Certified Eating Disorders Specialist. She was previously part of the Eating Disorders treatment team at the University of Nebraska Health Center in Lincoln. She is a member of the Nebraska Psychological Association and an Assistant Professor of Counseling at Wake Forest University.
In her clinical work, she is deeply committed to working with her clients on relational concerns, including relationship with others, relationship with food, and relationship with themselves. Her clinical work is grounded in a relational psychodynamic framework that utilizes a warm, caring therapeutic experience as a vehicle to help the client identify and dissolve obstacles preventing them from moving toward others in healthy relationships. Additionally, she incorporates empirically supported approaches (including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, and mindfulness-based interventions) to be flexible and responsive to the unique needs of each client.
