About Me

Greetings! I am a native New Orleanian, whose studies and career have taken me tp New York, California, Texas and before returning home. As a result of the travel, I have had a variety of experiences in a variety of settings, including community mental health center, non-profits and schools. I received my Master's in Social Work/Direct Services from Tulane University. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Board Approved Clinical Supervisor, I have worked with individuals and groups, families, adults and children. Much of my focus, has been on issues including: stress and anxiety management; anger management and self-esteem development. In addition, I have extensive, specialized training in parenting issues, grief and loss , substance addictions, disaster recovery, aging, custody issues and healthy communications within relationships. My clinical orientations combine client-centered, solutions-focused, individualized therapy, resulting from active compassionate listening. I believe in engaging clients in a caring, respectful manner.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Sheila SEALS. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Written by C.O. on Aug 12, 2022 after therapy with Sheila for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

She is extremely kind, and always respects my concerns.
