About Sheila Askins's service

I have worked in the helping profession for over 25 years because of my love for assisting populations to overcome issues, that hinders their ability to function to the best of their ability,using a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Approach. Initially, I started with a background in Social Services to Families with Children, with a focus on stabilizing the family unit, by providing case management services and counseling to oppressed populations. My experience evolved into my role as a Mental Health Specialist, providing counseling and Resources to Social Service recipients, who were experiencing problems becoming gainfully employed due to mental health issues , such as Depression and Anxiety issues. A focus on removing the barriers prohibiting them to obtain employment was identified, and counseling / case management, and family issues were addressed. Substance Addiction/Abuse, and School Counselor is also a part of my expertise, and experience. I look forward to assisting my clients identify, address, and work through issues that prohibit them to move forward, and to live the best life possible.
