About Me

My counseling style is warm and interactive but also honest. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, integrative and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I have considerable experience working with adults from any walk of life going through whatever difficulties they may be experiencing. I am also a certified Professional Life Coach.
In telling you a little bit more about myself, I graduated from the University at Albany with my Master's in Counseling in 2005. I have been in active practice with adults since that time as a licensed mental health counselor and certified rehabilitation counselor. I also have a Master's degree in Human Services and Social Welfare. I also have my PhD in Human Services and Social Welfare. I have spent my career focusing on helping those in need in whatever capacity I can.
I look forward to working with you!
I am available Monday through Saturday and I take Sundays off so my ability to respond will be limited only on Sundays.

Sreela is a genuinely warm and pleasant person to speak to, with a remarkable degree of perceptiveness and empathy. I feel very lucky to be working with her.

Sreela has truly been a Godsend, during these difficult times. I’ve spoken to her a couple of times already, but she allowed me to take up space and be fully heard. She is truly committed to the health and well-being of all her patients. I am very grateful to be working, learning and healing with her.

I love Sreela! She is amazing and really knowledgable and she doesn’t make it ever feel like a therapy session; it’s just like 2 friends chatting. I’ve only done a few sessions with her but I always leave the session feeling lighter and relieved.

In such a short time, Sreela has been a significant component to my mental health and well-being. She has already helped me more than anyone has done in my life, and it’s barely been a month. She listens, she understands, and she’s able to identify critical details in the things you share with her that allow her to properly help you in your efforts. Thank you, Sreela.

Written by J.A. on Jan 08, 2021 after therapy with Sreela for 9 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and grief

I’ve had quite a number of therapists since I began my mental health journey — some better than others — and can honestly say Sreela is the best. Not only do I receive unwavering (and honest) support from her in more difficult times, but I am also able to laugh with her, to talk about things beyond mental health, when things are good and still feel like I’m putting in the work toward improving myself. Whether I am doing well or not, I always look forward to sessions with Sreela because I know I will leave them feeling better than I did going in. She makes improving myself feel easy and accessible, and has helped me emotionally grow exponentially since I began seeing her. I couldn’t recommend her enough, she is truly wonderful and I am thankful to have found a therapist who suits me and my needs as well as she does.

Sreela is excellent at getting to the heart of matters in simple language that is easy to keep with you when you go to navigate situations on your own. She is extremely accessible and ready to jump right into the middle of matters in an extremely timely manor. Couldn't recommend her enough.

Amazing lady. Very responsive and helped me through a lot of panic attack mania.

Written by M.I. on Jul 19, 2020 after therapy with Sreela for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and coaching

Sreela is amazing. When I was going through a tough time a few months ago, she gave me the necessary tools I needed to make things easier. Being able to reach out to her whenever something crosses my mind or even our quick check ins, I appreciate that a lot.

Written by J.U. on May 08, 2020 after therapy with Sreela for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and adhd

I never expected to experience therapy in a positive and encouraging way since meeting Sreela. After sending her my issues to focus on and set goals to improve myself, she right away helped me tackle them like a coach with a game plan. She’s very resourceful with the materials she provides. And once again, she’s encouraging to help you develop good habits and regain your self confidence to better yourself. Very lucky to meet her!

Sreela is a great counselor. She's been very helpful and receptive to problems, response in a timely manner, and even checks up on me every once in a while. She's been very helpful overall. I highly recommend her.

Sreela has been a fantastic resource and has really helped me to dig deep and make connections. She always listens, is very responsive, incredibly supportive and always asks the right questions to really get me reflecting. Her support has been exactly what I've needed.

I have only had two sessions with Streela so far but I feel safe opening up to her, she is compassionate and understanding. I’m already feeling better and more at ease because she listens, and is very informative. I’m really happy I found her!

She’s great so far. I hope to heal a lot of hurt and work through a lot and she seems like she will be as attentive and patient as I may need her to be.

We are just getting started but I think we connected in a real way because she is great listener and is very responsive. She checks in constantly. I look forward to working with her more.

Written by E.D. on Mar 03, 2020 after therapy with Sreela for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

She listens not only with her ears/mind but with her heart, and that’s what matter to me most. It’s my heart that needs healing and uncovering and I find she is fertilizing and watering with a mother’s care and warmth.

I have been in counseling for years. However I’ve never experienced a counselor so invested in me. Sreela Stovall always gets back to me right away and she even checks on me. She also gives me assignments to work on my tools. I feel very supported and grateful for her.

Written by N.I. on Feb 25, 2020 after therapy with Sreela for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I think she was made for me to talk to. The universe opened its doors, and she was absolutely the best match. It’s only been a few sessions and she has lead me into different thinking, allows me to open the doors to new ideas. I couldn’t be more grateful and hope she never leaves

Work with me!
