Professional statement

Bronwyn Heiss is a Licensed psychotherapist located in Coral Gables, FL and offering online therapy within the State of Florida to people who would like to resolve past trauma that is still negatively affecting their relationships.

She assists high functioning, high performing successful professionals who have mastered their career along with many other aspects of their lives, but still struggle within their intimate relationships.

Bronwyn utilizes an evidence-based therapy modality called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). She teaches clients how to implement several coping skills for moments of distress, then takes them through EMDR exercises that can help them replace their painful memories and their intrusive trauma symptoms with adaptive, helpful, positive beliefs about themselves and the world.

Traditional talk therapy is also available.

Clients learn how to release shame and replace it with self-compassion by learning self-attunement. Effective communication skills, boundaries, and self-acceptance allow clients to give themselves and their partners the benefit of the doubt but within healthy boundaries that foster accountability and change.

Clients practice learning how to deal with hard emotions, instead of shutting down, overreacting, or running away during interpersonal conflicts. They also learn how to befriend their nervous system and widen their capacity to stay grounded when stressed.

Bronwyn is trained in the Gottman Method to assist couples in gaining more connection, communication, and intimacy in their relationships. She also includes an integrative approach that includes attachment based theory to help heal relational conflict and dynamics.

Bronwyn has 13 years of experience guiding clients to thriving instead of just surviving. Her goal is to empower her clients to remember who they truly are, so that can speak to themselves and the ones they love, with compassion and love. To release their inner and outer critics, release intergenerational trauma, and live peacefully.


Message to clients

I’m truly passionate about what I do—I’ve seen transformative results in the lives of my clients. Since I have my own lived experience with childhood trauma, and have personally done EMDR intensively, I am able to understand the nuances and complexities of healing from complex childhood trauma.

I am biracial, my father is a political refugee from Vietnam, and my mother is white. I often work with clients who identify as BIPOC, but I also welcome clients of all ethnicities and sexual orientation. I have personally experienced racism, and micro-aggressions, and when it’s relevant to your therapeutic work, I’m comfortable working with those issues.

I know how hard healing from complex trauma is—but I know it is absolutely possible. With my lived experience combined with my clinical work and specialized trainings, I will guide you through this process with the right amount of support for you. So as not to build co-dependency, but to offer a safe container for you in the therapy room.

My framework is to give you as the client, all of the autonomy and power to make the choices that work for you within our therapeutic relationship. I believe that by building a strong collaborative relationship, utilizing EMDR or talk therapy, you too will see transformative results.

Let’s talk on a consultation call. I see the best results, when I fully resonate with the client and the client fully resonates with me.
