Hello, I’m Shelia Rivers, CEO and Chief Therapist of Rivers Psychotherapy Services. I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker (LCSW). I provide counseling services for individuals, children and adolescents, adults, couples, families, and groups. I have obtained the following 
Educational credentials include a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Education, a Master in Social Work, a Master in Public Health-Executive Administration, and a Doctor of Social Work. I’m presently licensed in the States of Mississippi and  Louisiana. Being a Licensed Certified Social Worker gives me great pleasure. It allows me an opportunity to share my gift of therapy with many struggling with mental health illness and daily life trials. Watching individuals grow through implementing healthier coping skills, changing thought processes, empowering, and encouraging is one of life’s most rewarding careers. It’s my duty to remain passionate about this Helping Profession defined as Social Work. 
I look forward to making an amazing impact on my community, families, and the lives of the individuals I serve.
