Sheila was warm and inviting and made me feel comfortable to talk to her about anything without judgment. She was very responsive to messages and reached out to check on me regularly. She made the idea of therapy less daunting.

More about me
Years in Practice: 28
I have worked in the helping profession for over 25 years because of my love for assisting populations to overcome issues, that hinders their ability to function to the best of their ability,using a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Approach.
Initially, I started with a background in Social Services to Families with Children, with a focus on stabilizing the family unit, by providing case management services and counseling to oppressed populations.
My experience evolved into my role as a Mental Health Specialist, providing counseling and Resources to Social Service recipients, who were experiencing problems becoming gainfully employed due to mental health issues , such as Depression and Anxiety issues. A focus on removing the barriers prohibiting them to obtain employment was identified, and counseling / case management, and family issues were addressed.
Substance Addiction/Abuse, and School Counselor is also a part of my expertise, and experience.
I look forward to assisting my clients identify, address, and work through issues that prohibit them to move forward, and to live the best life possible.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
