Background and Experience
Sheema has experience working with individuals of all ages. She primarily works with teens and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, chronic illness, stress, trauma, and domestic abuse. She has worked in a variety of settings including inpatient psychiatric facilities and a foster care agency.
As a clinical social worker and therapist, I enjoy teaching positive coping skills to help clients overcome life's challenges, identify their strengths, and help them to reach their fullest potential by working together to utilize the tools they need to accomplish their goals.
My experience in both the medical & mental health field has fueled my desire to bring out the best in others. I believe a fullfilling & enriching life comes from caring for both your physical and mental well-being.
Allow me to help you reach your goals and walk with on your journey to recovery.
