The Ultimate Traveling Therapist; A Military Spouse

Shayla has focused her efforts back on helping women create a balance in their career, family, and self. After years working the field of clinical social work, Shayla was faced to evolve as wife and mother while balancing her career as a psychotherapist, she has built a private practice and managed her own well-being to help other women with similar experiences.

Shayla knows that being a Military Spouse comes with moves every few years and it has its challenges, but Shayla has made it work and the people she serves by opening Ctrl Shift Balance Mental Wellness offering safe and secure online psychotherapy sessions that are focused on emotional well-being and mental health in the states of South Carolina, North Carolina, and Florida.

Shayla’s person-centered approach to therapy is nonjudgmental, supportive, and emphatic. She uses treatment modalities that meet her clients where they are at with a combination of skills from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). Shayla now offers Brainspotting as another tools to help women on their healing journey. Shayla continues looks for ways to help women unpack baggage that keeps them from taking the steps that are necessary to create balance to thrive personally and professionally.
