Dr. Heather Wadeson
Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Welcome! 

My name is Dr. Heather Wadeson and I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Springfield, MO. My specialization is in Clinical Health Psychology, which focuses on the intersection between physical and emotional illness.

I have received extensive training in various evidence-based treatments, such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Throughout the last decade I have worked in a variety of settings including community mental health, hospitals, and the VA. Each of these training opportunities have contributed a significant amount of growth and knowledge. It is in my nature to always learn and evolve, so I will continue to broaden my training and find new ways to serve my patients.

 

My overarching goal is to provide more holistic and individualized approach to mental health treatment. I enjoy helping individuals by providing them with the help and guidance they need to be successful, healthy, and balanced. 

In addition to being a licensed psychologist, I am a registered yoga teacher (RYT200). Yoga has been a life-changing practice that has led to an overall sense of physical and emotional well-being for myself. I feel honored to be able to pass this positive energy on to others. 

I was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Drury University from 2019 -2022. I taught several classes including Abnormal Psychology, Introduction to Psychology, Cross-Cultural Psychology, Holistic Health Practices, and Health Psychology and Community Interventions. Being a teacher in the classroom  has helped me to translate the material to the therapy room. I am a huge nerd and love handouts and resources. Ask and you shall receive! 

Please contact me at 417-319-6076 or e-mail me at drhwadeson@gmail.com if you would like more information on how to schedule an appointment! I look forward to hearing from you!
