Sheila Flipse

(M.A., LMHC, CPC, NCC)

About Me

Hi, my name is Sheila Flipse. My passion is to come along side individuals who are hurting and struggling and walk with them through their journey to health and wholeness in a kind and compassionate manner. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor in the state of Nevada, and a licensed mental health counselor in the state of New York. I am also a national certified counselor.

Born in Liverpool, England I moved to Toronto, Ontario, Canada as a child and became and American citizen in 2000. My areas of specialty include grief and loss, depression, anxiety and stress and sexual addiction. While I was a college professor, I developed a class entitled, Death and Dying that has proved helpful to many people over the last few years. I love to help people build a healthy self concept and develop confidence. I have over 25 years of counseling experience.
My professional life has included working with the homeless, prison, college and military populations. I have lots of experience with relationship and marital concerns. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, playing board games and volunteering for community activities.

My approach is very much cognitive behavioral therapy with motivational interviewing techniques. Together we work to find out what is working in the client's life and develop those skills and techniques and we work at helping the client become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking patterns so that they can begin to view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in more effective ways.

It would be my honor to work with you.

In the short time I've been communicating with Sheila, she has helped me so much. She helped me make an important first step that I had been putting off for a long time, and it was successful for me! She has a very kind delivery & offers very common sense direction, she's able to see the bottom line of what is needed. I gave her an abundance of information about myself, but she helped me prioritize and set a necessary first goal, that I achieved. I highly recommend Sheila as a counselor.

Sheila makes what it should be-safe, cathartic and empowering to the individual. She is kind, understanding and easy to talk to. I personally have made progress in areas of my life that I know I wouldn't have been able to tackle as successfully if I hadn't started therapy with her. I look forward to continuing my healing process with Sheila!
