About me

I have had my doctorate for over 30 years. Having been a "navy brat" all my life I am used to meeting new people, constant change and evaluating goals and making necessary changes. My style is working as a support system and providing options and changes. I allow others to ultimately make their own decisions but act as support system for acceptance of their decisions. My professional program allowed for many experiences and training opportunities.

Great working with her

Written on Sep 22, 2022 after therapy with Sheila for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and anger management

Dr. Cooley-Parker is a wonderful person and really helped me understand my place as an expat traveling overseas as a military brat since she also grew up in a similar environment. Along with her cool personality, she's very easy to talk to and understanding listening to every word and comments on every struggle I had. It allowed me to clear my mind a little too make sense of the shock of being super independent and often alone in foreign countries. Highly recommended.

Early to tell as this was our first session, though she seems like a genuinely nice and caring person and I look forward in working with her and benefit from her experience.
