My goal is to promote your health with competence, a caring attitude, and cultural sensitivity. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in Florida and a licensed professional counselor in Alaska. Not only do I have a doctorate in Counseling, but I have many years experience working in the school system with special education families. I am sensitive to the needs of the siblings and parents of exceptional children.
In terms of counseling, we shall look at the whole picture. We'll explore how your relationships have affected your current disposition. But we will also consider your diet, your sleep, and your lifestyle: how all these affect you. But do not fear, we want to find a solution and end therapy as soon as we can!
I think of myself as a prospector, looking for gold. I firmly believe that inside of everyone is a streak of gold and gems. Our job, together, is to find your gold that has been covered up with the debris of life. I want to help you regain your strengths and values and joy of life.
People with eating disorders is a specialty. Your body and mind are interwoven, so we will consider lifestyle not diets.

Dr. Sheets is the best of the best. She guides me in a way I find very helpful and productive. She is never distracted or disengaged and remembers our previous conversations in great detail. I was worried I wouldn’t be getting the quality of therapy I have gotten in person in the past but she better than the therapists I have worked with in office in the past.
