That's kind of odd. It's usually the other way around. People have issues with toeside rather than heelside.

I assume you know how to stop heelside though? That is a great way to work on your heelsides. Start doing long carves heelside and gradually go into the stopping motion. This will get you comfortable with heel edge control.

Also, a little forward lean on your binding's highback will help with heelside power. Just start with a slight lean though and see if that helps.
