Hello, my name is Sheila Funk-Jansen. I am a licensed clinical therapist in Iowa and Illinois. I graduated with my MSW in social work in 2003 from University of Missouri-Columbia. I have worked with a variety of courageous people in my journey to help them be more vulnerable, brave, and resilient. For the last 25+ years, I I have worked with people experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, addiction, family conflicts, and many other areas of life. I believe people have the resiliency to move the barriers that life presents to us. Life is all about learning. Learning about ourselves and giving up our comforts in life are scary even if they are unhealthy. Each person is unique and I am here to start where you are at in your journey. I utilize therapy approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focus Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing along with utilizing other modalities. The client and therapist's alliance is crucial in providing a safe, non judgmental space to be open and vulnerable to see their potential and resiliency to grow when experiencing hurt and pain.
I see people through the week along with some weekends. I work with schedules as much as I can to help get people in sooner when needed. I look forward in working with you. Sheila

Shelia has been so supportive during these last few months. She is honest and open, and very easy to talk with.
Sheila is amazing to work with. She is very attentive and easy to talk to. She keeps the conversation going which I appreciate Because that is not my strong suit.
Sheila is incredibly kind and insightful. Just during our first session she opened my mind up quite a bit. She has been wonderful to speak with and I look forward to continuing to work with her.
Made me feel very comfortable and understood. It was easy to talk to her and open up to her.
I have only had one session with Sheila and I can’t already tell she is going to be great! I felt an instance connection talking to her today! Can’t wait for our next session!
Dr. Sheila is the best. I feel safe and supported when I'm talking to her, and our sessions have had a very positive impact on my life.
I have been working with Shelia for a few weeks now and I really think our sessions have been very helpful. She is very easy to talk and always there to listen. She has helped me deal with a very rough time life.
Helpful advice and supportive approach.
I’ve had a few sessions with Sheila and she’s absolutely wonderful! She’s been encouraging but up front in a way that allows me to make the necessary decisions I need for healing and growth. I can’t thank her enough for being on this journey with me.
