Get Ready to Create Change in Your Life


Create Change offers a team of therapists specializing in treating emotional, relational, and cognitive symptoms that hold you back from living the life you want to live.

Trauma recovery is offered as a 5 day intensive therapy that reaches to the heart of the matter and sparks the transition needed to move your healing forward.  Treatment can include other modalities as options and is designed to jump start your progress if you are stuck, overwhelmed, or unsure of the path to recovery.  Following the intensive clients will generally return to their previous therapy or will be assisted to find an ongoing provider.

Navigate Change offers coaching for personal and business development to individuals, couples, business managers and their teams.  Coaching is offered in person, via zoom and utilizing on line modules to supplement your learning.

Sheila offers coaching for relationships at all stages of life and for successfully navigating   life transitions.  She also provides coaching team building, leadership development and business start up, as well as goal setting and peak performance for you and your team.

Create Change offers consultation to professionals working in the area of trauma recovery.  Consultation can take the form of client visits, training and education, clinical supervision, or case consultation.

Training is specifically tailored for therapists, psychologists and teachers to improve their effectiveness with their clients and their students.

Sheila participates in offering Urban retreats for renewal as a multidisciplinary approach to optimizing your health and helping you move forward and be present in your life.
