In an article by Rome Neal,  Harry Smith recalls a rough patch in his life and how Power of Two’s very own Dr. Heitler helped him see the light at the end of the tunnel. Dr. Heitler diagnosed the co-anchor as depressed and clinically anxious. Ever more important, Dr. Heitler recognized that these issues were fixable.

In time, Harry introduced Dr. Heitler to his bride-to-be. With guidence from Dr. Heitler, they built a foundation for a partnersip that endures to this day.

In praise of Dr. Heitler, Smith said, ” People come from different worlds, different emotional backgrounds, and the time that Andrea and I spent with Susan [Heitler] was nothing short of invaluable.”
