I help licensed & certified professionals reconnect who they are with what they do.

Hi! I’m Sheila aka The Joyful Lawyer! I have lots of titles: attorney, social worker, coach, speaker, educator. While I’m proud of those titles, the reason I’m known as The Joyful Lawyer™ is because work is not who I am. It’s because I love what I do and who I help.

I work so I can live the life I love – one that’s full of freedom, fulfillment, joy, and REST. This allows me to help struggling professionals create a life of liberation – a life they love!

I believe Clarity leads to Confidence, which then leads to Courage.

“Sheila goes above and beyond. I can’t thank her enough for providing me with the clarity and confidence that allowed me to take my career to the next level. Her breadth of knowledge, compassion, and intuitive compass led me to a range of options and ideas that I hadn’t realized were possible, from a personal and professional standpoint. She is a coach, a strategist, and a mentor – your advocate through and through at all times.”

Working with me is simple.

I’m getting so much out of my work with Sheila. I really appreciate that everything is organized, easy to keep up with, and clearly laid out. All of the interfaces are easy to use and Sheila makes even Zoom calls feel personalized. Sheila is a gifted coach and mentor who is skilled at listening and guiding, as well as at spotting those times when digging deeper would be beneficial. She has helped me identify what I want/need to work on and has helped me formulate a plan that feels just right, never overwhelming. I’m so grateful for Sheila for helping me finally dream my own dream.


Lets uncover the secret to your next steps together: You

Sheila is an amazing attorney, business coach, and human being, who is helping me make a significant transition in my life. I am particularly impressed by her follow up to our meetings where she has recapped points of our discussion and suggested follow up steps. This has enabled me to turn our conversations into concrete plans of action that I can execute.
