Sheila believes the human experience encompasses a full range of emotions and experiences, some of which can be difficult to understand or process. Whether seeking healing, clarity or a complete change of course, her goal is to help clients discover their own strengths and self-worth, and to view themselves as resilient individuals, capable of the change they seek. Sheila finds great satisfaction in connecting with clients in a way that instills hope, promotes personal growth and relieves suffering.
