Sheila believes that the “symptoms” we are experiencing are the way that our internal pain is “coming out”. We often want to bury and ignore what we feel, but unfortunately this does not work in the long run. It is going to express itself in some way.
It is here at the root of our internal experience that Sheila likes to work. This means letting ourselves listen to what our body, emotions, and thoughts are telling us. Whether we realize it or not our internal pain is being expressed. As we tune and listen, we give ourselves the opportunity to heal from those things that hurt. Sheila will be your guide through this journey. She will also join you on your path, as she believes that one of our deepest needs as people is that we are are seen, heard, and felt. As you allow yourself to go to those tender places and let someone safe and empathetic to accept and validate you in them, you can heal and find relief from your symptoms.

Her passion for counseling initially began while volunteering on Mercy Ships, a relief and aid ministry working throughout the world. It was here that she noticed how the internal pain of others seemed to keep them living in freedom of who they were meant to be.
She later pursued her Masters in Counseling from Denver Seminary and concentrates in helping people work at the “root” level of their issues to bring restoration to the deeper areas of their sense of self and their ways of relating to others.
