Shirley M. Wheeler, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for thirty-one years, continues to learn from people willing to share their emotional wounds and resulting issues with which they struggle.  Common presenting concerns are anger, fear, abandonment, grief, depression, anxiety, guilt and shame.  Further, her own life experiences continue to be a source of valuable insights for healing and growth.  Perhaps the most basic of insights is that God does not allow our pain to be wasted; He has valuable lessons to teach us in times of joy and times of sorrow.  While she continues to provide what might be termed traditional psychotherapy, in 2006 she added an exciting dimension of expertise; she completed training for certification by the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA).  This fulfilled a dream, to offer Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP), a very powerful model that utilizes the innate ability of horses to detect and respond to the emotions of people in their presence.  As a mental health professional, Shirley has worked with all age groups in both inpatient and outpatient settings, including a period of time in which she worked with the Menninger Clinic on the Adolescent Unit.  She enjoys providing services through individual, couple and group sessions in a safe, caring and nonjudgmental setting.  Shirley considers it a privilege to share part of your journey of growth and healing.
