Heidi Straube, M.Ed.,LPC is a photographer, life muse, and contemplative psychotherapist.
Integrating twenty years experience in meditative practices, including Zen and yogic traditions, with as many years as a career/life direction counselor and psychotherapist, she expresses her vision of the world and helps people to make life changes and transitions by honoring the deeper, spiritual self.
"The Inner Path of Photography" and “You are the Artist of your Life,” are examples of classes and personal retreats that Heidi leads, using photography as a tool for self-discovery and change.
She works with teens, children, and adults in finding the inner knowing & connection that photography brings, as well as encouraging unique self-expression.
