Sheila Ewell


About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, with licenses in Texas and Washington. I have seen a lot, done a lot and I've visited many places. I believe all of my experiences thus far bring a unique perspective to my counseling style. I have a great deal of experience working with individuals affected by depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, poor self-esteem, and life change. I try to gain a deep understanding of my clients and formulate therapeutic interventions based on individualized needs.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Washington, Seattle. I immediately moved to Virginia to work on my Forensic Psychology Master’s, learning there that I had a passion for working with victims. After a few years of exploring and not being very satisfied with my career options, I moved back to Texas and pursued a Master’s in Counseling at Southern Methodist University, with a focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

During my practicum and internship, I worked with victims of domestic, sexual, and physical abuse. I have experience in Play Therapy, Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, with both individuals and groups. Over the last several years, I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings, including 2 years with The Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County, in a hospital setting, and leading a drug and alcohol intensive outpatient program. I also facilitated an anger management group for probationers, and I've worked with behavior-disordered children in the community. I have been a contract therapist for a private practice for the last 3 years.

Sheila is the best therapist I have ever had. She genuinely cares about how you are doing and she responds to messages in a very timely manner. My work only covers 6 sessions, but if I am able to, I am definitely willing to pay for more after as needed cause Sheila really takes the time to address any issues and concerns you have.
