Some of the therapeutic approaches/methods I am skilled in includes; Acceptance and Commitment Theory, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Person Centered Theory, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic, and Trauma focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Not taking new clients currently; Will start taking clients January 2023. Hello my name is Shantila and as a therapist I do not believe that there is one counseling approach that works for every person, and for this reason, I take a more eclectic approach to work with my clients and select the method that allows me to best serve the needs of my clients. I am a strength based, person centered, trauma informed care provider who uses various evidence based therapeutic approaches that will best serve the clients I work with.

I love working with a variety of individuals. As a Marriage and Family therapist, I especially enjoy working with people in the context of their family. I believe we are influenced and shaped by past events, relationships, and our upbringing. Therapy is a helpful way to explore those areas we are struggling with and to learn a little bit more about ourselves. By doing this, we can become healthier and happier people.

I serve women in the Cedar Valley. We have often accomplished and experienced a lot in our lives by the time we seek counseling. All of us have periods where we struggle; perhaps we can't sleep, we are stressed to the breaking point and in spite of having people around us, we may feel lonely or depressed. If this is you, you aren't alone.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.
