Hello, I’m Heidi Lynn Andersen, MS, LPC, CEDS. Welcome to the online home of the Reclaiming Beauty Counseling Practice in Asheville, NC and the Reclaiming Beauty Journal & Wisdom Deck. This site is currently under construction.

I am a body-centered psychotherapist in Asheville, North Carolina specializing in working with women and girls who want to heal their relationship with body, food and most importantly, with themselves. My counseling style is integrative weaving together somatic, trauma and attachment, parts work, yoga, mindfulness and expressive arts approaches.

For information about scheduling a session, please send me an email: heidi@reclaimingbeauty.com

The Reclaiming Beauty Journal and Wisdom Deck is a practical, visually appealing, hands-on resource to help readers rewire their inner dialogue from self-criticism to self-compassion. It contains fifty cards bearing beautiful images, with corresponding affirmations, practices, and pages for journaling in the accompanying book.

The Reclaiming Beauty experience can be a yearlong exploration, working through the affirmations in order, alone or in a circle of women. Or, a reader may decide to randomly choose a card from the deck each day, or to do a three-card reading in response to a particular situation or question.

Negative body image suggests internal obstacles to self-acceptance that need to be addressed. Readers will find resources for healing shame-based identity, embracing their unique beauty, and developing an action plan to offer their unique strengths and gifts in service to the world.
