What Our Clients Are Saying

letter writing

The work we do at Create Change is evidence in itself that therapy works. No matter which therapist or therapy you engage, our work is results-oriented. We see it in our clients’ eyes. We hear it in their voices. We celebrate it when lives unfold, expand, and emerge stronger, more resilient, more joyful.

Still, it’s nice to be told by our clients how the work we do has affected them.

Here is a recent note of appreciation from one happy client:

Thank you for showing me how to find myself again. Once my divorce started I lost all focus and drive. Thanks to your help I’m back and way stronger than before. Now I can look forward to working on the other things that put me in a bad spot, like being hit by a drunk driver several years ago. You are a special counselor with a gift that enables you to see exactly what someone is missing in their life and how to help them get it back. Now, as you have helped me, I get to help others in the gym while staying focused on my healing process. Thank you.” –Chris R.

    Sheila is by far the best counselor for people with DID, CPTSD and panic/anxiety attacks. I have only been working with her a few months but for the first time I feel hope for my future. Since my diagnosis I have searched the Portland area for someone to help me, I have seen so many different counselors that just didn’t understand. But now that I have been working with Sheila I know I have found someone I can trust . She is knowledgeable, kind and very skilled. She has saved my life

    I have been working with my wife for several years now on her panic attacks as well as her DID and CPSTD. We have jumped from counselor to counselor to counselor. None have seemed to be knowledgeable or have the skill set to deal with my wifes issues. That is until we met Sheila. I have learned more in the last 3 months about my wife then I have in the last 8 years. I have gained knowledge that has helped me work with my wife and understand the struggle she is going through. Sheila works with my wife in a way that helps me gain skills and comprehend what is happening and I cannot say how much this has changed our lives. We have hope now where we didn’t before. Thank you Sheila!

    After being involved in a pretty bad car crash I was so shaken I couldn’t get behind the wheel without holding on to it with a death grip. I had even convinced myself that every car on the road was aiming at me. A co-worker suggested I find someone proficient in EMDR. He said it worked wonders after he was in a head on accident. After just three visits with Sheila I was able to drive calmly and with renewed confidence behind the wheel. I even began driving at night again something I was deathly scared of doing because of my accident. I highly recommend Sheila and her life saving techniques.
