Biography - "I believe in an individualized, strength-based, and compassionate approach; assisting individuals in recognizing barriers and empowering them to live the life they want."

Sheila Grow

My philosophy embraces an integrative approach that includes cognitive, psychodynamic, and mindfulness to empower people to create the life they envision. I respect that each individual brings a story unique to them, and recognize all behavior has purpose.

I have numerous hours of continuing education, and have trained in the most effective evidence-based therapies including Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior therapy (TF-CBT), (Adolescent focused) Dialectical Behavior group therapy, and have experience providing mental health services in school, outpatient, and partial hospitalization settings.

I use therapeutic modalities that best fit the unique situation of each client. My approach includes Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, Family Therapy, Trauma-Informed, Crisis Counseling, and Grief Counseling.
