About Heather Kniss

Hello, I am Heather Kniss (she/her), a licensed social worker (LSW). I counsel people aged nine and older.

My Background

I earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in social work from Millersville University in Pennsylvania. I have worked in school, outpatient, and in-home/community settings. I am experienced working with families, at-risk children, and teens, as well as adults – all with different diagnoses, life experiences, and treatment needs.

How I Can Help You

I am passionate about working with children, teens, and young adults (through the age of 30). My goal is to create an environment that allows you to feel safe, heard, valued, and respected. I can work with you on issues you are experiencing, including those related to anxiety, anger management, autism, behavioral issues, body imagedepression, ADHD, eating disorders/disordered eating, family conflict, ODD, self-harm & suicidal ideation, trauma & PTSD, relationship issues, boundary setting, phase-of-life challenges, as well as struggles in building self-esteem.

Training and Therapy Together

On the clinical side, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing to help you achieve your current and long-term goals. You are an individual, and I will tailor therapy to ensure that our time working together feels effective and personal to your needs. My main hope is that I can support and empower you through this journey. My training also includes aspects of Emotionally Focused Relationship Therapy (EFT), Mindfulness-Based (MBCT), Person-Centered therapy, and Strength-Based therapy.

About Me

Outside work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, cuddling with my two cats, going on walks, and catching up on my favorite TV shows. I also love traveling and have visited several countries outside the US. I am always looking to find new places to explore!
