Get Ready to Create Change in Your Life

Counseling is designed to addresses your mental health needs. Whether you suffer from depression, anxiety, an eating disorder, abuse or post traumatic stress, therapy helps you on the path to healing.

Coaching involves the process of working together to meet your business and personal life goals. A coach helps to tap into your internal knowing as you navigate relationships and transitions at all stages of life.

Consultation can take the form of client visits, training and education, clinical supervision, or case consultation. The goal is to increase your effectiveness with clients, employees, and students.


About Me


SHEILA WALTY, Director, LCSW, Professional Certified Coach

I have been providing insight and direction to individuals, couples, family members, and peers for over 30 years in the areas of personal growth and professional development. I believe that relationships are the most critical priority in life and that people are our most precious resource. I have been in the corporate world building programs, managing teams and maximizing profit while simultaneously providing insight and direction to individuals and teams in the areas of personal performance and professional development.

I was fortunate to learn about relationship styles in a way that easily translates to better communication, smooth conflict resolution, and increased satisfaction in the lives of people at all stages of their relationships and all stages of their career development. I will help you to understand people and interact with them in a way that builds trust, safety, shared purpose, and lasting connection.

Sheila Walty is a Master Therapist and Certified Professional Coach who has 35 years of providing therapy and coaching to couples, families and teams. She served as the Clinical Director for the Oregon Critical Incident Response Team and has been featured as a speaker regarding trauma, communication and teambuilding.
