Written by T.O. on Jan 14, 2021 after counseling with Sheila for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, and self esteem

I was only able to do 2 sessions with Ms. Sheila and she was great for anyone needing a therapist. She helped frame my issues from a different point of view and gave me a coping technique that will help me stay on a positive path. She uses religion to help guide her sessions which was fine for me, but may not be for others. Overall, I would recommend her with no reservations
