About Sheila Mckeon

I am a family therapist specializing in trauma and anxiety reduction therapy. My clients experience relief in 3-6 sessions because of my longer 2 hour sessions designed to quickly reduce symptoms and increase clear focused thoughts and calm relaxed body and a more carefree spirit. I provide effective short-term therapy for trauma, anxiety, communication and conflict resolution in relationships. I utilize powerful techniques, tools, solution focused strategies and approaches that work on the science of the emotional brain, creating lasting permanent change in thoughts, attitudes, emotions, and behavior.

My mission is to clear barriers, increase resources, and empower others to live their passion and mission in life. I do this by providing anxiety therapy and trauma therapy to a client base of adults, children, teens, couples, and families. I facilitate movement from trauma, anxiety and emotional or physical discomfort, to enhanced, vibrant connection with self and others. Positive Transformation incorporates the latest scientific research on the brain to implement change through powerful techniques such as Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy. Bring families together by enhancing communication, eliminating emotional reactivity, and enhancing ability to play and enjoy life.

I have 20 years of experience as a therapist working intuitively with diverse populations and ages. I have a passion for learning (continued education of 300 hours in the last year alone).  Using the latest research of the human brain and neuroscience. I am intuitive, analytical, and empathetic. All expertly coordinated and tailored to get you from where you are, to where you want to be.

Personally I have lived in New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Kauai Hawaii, Nevada, and currently in Asheville, North Carolina. This has given me a greater understanding of different cultures and integration of cultures. I am in my second marriage now for 10 years. I have 3 sons, a daughter-in-law, 2 granddaughters, a cat and a dog. I love the outdoors, nature, hiking, swimming, beaches and waterfalls, and watching movies and reading.
