About

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.
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.
I believe in meeting people where they are at in their life. It is important to me to have a more collaborative approach while working with clients to help each client develop their own individual counseling goals and a plan to achieve those goals. Please reach out so I can support you on your journey. I look forward to working with you.
