My Role at Linden BP:

I am the founder and owner of Linden BP and a licensed clinical psychologist. I have been working with children, adolescents, and adults for nearly 20 years. My practice treating individuals of all ages. My practice is a combination of behavioral medicine (the interplay between physical disease and psychological practice) and the general practice of clinical psychology. I evaluate and manage psychological problems of children ranging in age from the first year of life through young adulthood, including concerns related to development and/or behavioral concerns, autism spectrum disorders, childhood depression and anxiety, difficulties with peers/ socialization, and/or academic difficulties. In addition, I treat children with tic disorder/tourette’s, chronic pain (headache, abdominal pain, fibromyalgia), enuresis/encopresis, eating disorders, and sleep disturbance. I work with adults experiencing family stress, relationship difficulties, parenting concerns, anxiety and depression, and anger.

Personal Passions:
My two greatest personal passions are my family and yoga! I love spending time with my family and friends, and one of my greatest joys is being a mother! Yoga has been my secret for maintaining a healthy mind and body while juggling the many demands of life. My passion for yoga led to my seeking out a teacher training in 2018 and opening of a studio, Linden Yoga, in 2019.

Fun Facts:
 I enjoy all things in the kitchen – cooking, baking, and experimenting with recipes, especially when I get to do these things with one of my children. And the joke around those who know me is that I only know how to cook as if I am feeding the whole neighborhood!

Why I love being at Linden BP:
​Simply put: I love what I get to do! I am truly grateful that individuals allow me to be on their difficult journey to help provide tools and guidance for navigating tough terrain. And, I have passion for turning challenging moments into opportunities that can serve an individual throughout their life.​

Heidi M. Kloss, Ph.D., ATR-BC, LPCC-S

Title: Doctoral-Level Licensed Therapist for Children & Adolescents
Education:
• Bachelor’s Degree, Cleveland State University (1996)
• Master’s Degree, Ursuline College (1999)
• Ph.D. Ed with a Specialty in Clinical Counseling, Cleveland State University (2009)
Training & Experience:

• Director of Intensive Services, Crossroads (Counseling Agency for Children and Adolescents)

My Role at Linden BP:
It is my belief that we all try to do the best that we can. Yet we often struggle to do this as successfully as we wish. It is my goal to offer guidance and teach new tools to navigate these challenges.

I have 20 years of clinical experience. I spent many years working with children and teens in crisis. I specialize in treating youth ranging in age from 5-18 years, who are experiencing depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, self-harming behaviors, behavioral concerns, and poor social skills. I highly value the involvement of parents, teachers and other key figures during the treatment process. I also have experience working with adults, who are experiencing depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and trauma.

Treatment is based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques and involves attention to the mind and body for total self-care. Originally trained as an art therapist, I also utilize these strategies, when appropriate, to help children, teens and adults express issues and stressors, as well as to process life events that may be difficult to “put into words.”
I work to establish a safe and welcoming setting to build trust. This allows for the therapeutic work that can lead to happier and healthier lives.

Personal Passions:
“Stay the path” is one of my favorite sayings. I am grateful to assist children, adolescents and their families as they navigate their paths to reach their short and long term goals. I guide and support them through the unanticipated obstacles on life’s journey so they can experience personal success and discover hidden strengths along the way! In my own life, I “stay the path” by trying new things and participating in hobbies such as yoga, running, biking, hiking, painting and drawing. I also love to read books on just about any topic. I love exploring new places in the Cleveland area with my husband, friends, and two sisters (as well as with my 2 dogs!).

Fun Facts:
I am trained as a yoga teacher and have run in several half-marathons. My favorite half-marathon was the Disney Princess half-marathon! I always try to get my family out with me on hikes, walking, and other activities. Unfortunately, I am somewhat distance challenged, so my family knows that if I invite them on a “quick walk” it could easily turn into a three hour tour! But I make it up to them by baking cookies (my favorites are chocolate chip and Gingerbread).

Why I love being at Linden BP:
I am excited to work with such a dedicated group of professionals who want to provide high quality services for children, adolescents, and their families. I feel fortunate to be able to work in such a welcoming setting where patients are the priority!

I have a love for working with children, adolescents, and a strong desire to help all my patients achieve their greatest potential in all aspects of life. With my specialty training in school psychology, I value the opportunity to work collaboratively with school personnel to provide educational recommendations that can be implemented within the classroom environment. In addition, soccer was my life growing up and because of the game I learned a lot of great skills, but also understand the struggles that young athletes go through, whether it be due to an injury or just feeling “stuck”, I am passionate to work with and help young athletes advance their performance and break through their mental barriers.

Fun Facts:
I played soccer competitively for 19 years. I started playing at the age of 3 and continued playing competitively until age 22, even playing collegiately. I also absolutely love watching ice hockey. I have two dogs and a cat, a lab-mix named Riley and a great dane named Skye, and a gray tabby named Jada.

Why I love being at Linden BP:
I love what I do and the environment in which I get to do it. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and it truly makes me excited get up and go to work everyday to do what I love to do in such a wonderful setting.
