I am Sheila Hedden, a licensed clinical social worker with a private practice in Irvine. I have twenty years of experience working with adults, adolescents, and children. As a psychotherapist, I strive to offer the highest quality services for my clients, which include working with individuals, couples, and families. I am Spanish-speaking and have experience working with clients from a wide variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
My goal as a psychotherapist is to help clients identify solutions, so that they can find relief from their symptoms. I use an empathetic, but direct approach, in order to help people set the goals that will help them to feel better and improve their lives. We, then, work together to achieve those goals. I believe that all people should have access to quality mental health care, and so I do accept insurance. I also work in an office with other mental health professionals, such as psychiatrists, psychologists and licensed clinical social workers. This makes collaboration and consultation very easy.
