Starla R Sholl, LCSW, PC
I provide counseling, psychotherapy, and clinical hypnotherapy. I treat individuals and couples, and have 27 years experience. I also provide LCSW supervision and consultation to therapists beginning in private practice. Because I am also interested in alternative healing, I can educate and make referrals to assist people in becoming more conscious and healthy in their life choices.
My background is in psychodynamic psychotherapy, which means I believe much of our behavior is rooted in our subconscious. Often the goal of therapy can be to become aware of our patterns and to understand our motivations. Just as important, though, is to have a safe place to get in touch with, and connect with, our emotions. I also believe that there is a stong connection between our thoughts, emotions, and our physical body, so working on our emotions and thoughts helps us to feel better physically.
My practice specialties: Childhood trauma, alternative families, spiritual questioning,relationship difficulties, anxiety, and recurrent patterns that inhibit potential.
I am also interested in aromatherapy and essential oils, and their impact on the mind and body. If clients are interested, the possible benefits of oils can be discussed. I also have become open to other natural medicines, and can provide information and appropriate referrals to folks.
Additionally, over the past few years, I have also worked with more and more clients to bring in meditation, and stress reduction techniques, to their daily lives.
