Heidi Purvis, M.A., LPC, NCC (she/they)

Heidi is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oklahoma and Pennsylvania. She is available for students at OCU School of Law and OCU Main Campus.

“Using an integrative holistic approach, I collaborate with clients to uncover ways of emotionally connecting with others, themselves and the world. Through Adlerian, person centered, and cultural humility approaches clients are encouraged to explore and create meaning socially, culturally, individually, and relationally. Change is overwhelming and many often experience pain. Creating safety and support as clients learn about themselves while developing meaning, purpose, connection and emotional awareness, is the underlying basis of my therapeutic process.”
