Sheila considers it a privilege to accompany adults and adolescents on their journeys toward healing, and to create a safe and supportive space for deep sharing. Her approach is holistic, integrating body, mind, soul and spirit. She collaborates with clients to create desired change, and works with individuals who struggle with: uncertainty and self-doubt, interpersonal difficulties, trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, and issues related to career and life direction. Sheila enjoys engaging with motivated clients who seek to transform their relationships to struggle and loss, while opening to an expanded sense of self.
Her sessions combine traditional methods with somatic, depth-oriented, and mindfulness-based interventions, to meet the unique needs of each client. Using this blended approach, she helps individuals recognize and expand their capacity to nurture themselves through the storms of difficult experience, and to navigate change using the resources of their innate wholeness.

Over the last twelve years, Sheila’s career has evolved to include experience in community mental health, inpatient, and private practice settings. She earned a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2003, and has specific training in EMDR, an effective approach to treating trauma. Before pursuing a career in counseling, Sheila worked in education, graphic design, and as a field instructor for the Hurricane Island Outward Bound School.
When not at work, she enjoys exploring Montana’s mountains and rivers, reading, writing, and sharing time with friends and family.
