How to Work Around A Style Format

I'm using Word for Mac. I'm using styles to label my headings (I have 5 levels) so that when I create a TOC, it pulls in the headings to create the TOC. All fine and good.
However: I am trying to format only the heading and not the remainder of the paragraph and Word keeps applying the style to the entire paragraph. I need to follow APA v6, so under some levels of headings the text starts immediately after the heading with no line break. For example:
This text is the heading. This text is the start of the paragraph on the same line and is also being formatted with the style even if I just highlight the heading and apply the style.
I hope this explanation makes sense because it is making me crazy and there has to be a way to satisfy my needs for easy TOC creation and also adhere to APA style.
