Hello there! I am Shera Wiscons, the owner of Connective Counseling. Working with relationships is my passion. I had a dream one day that I could help people feel more love in their life and that is exactly what I am doing today. Turns out that love = deep connection and there are ways to remove that loneliness to feel deeply connected again.
I completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Lindenwood in St. Charles (St. Louis), Missouri and earned a Master of Arts degree at Texas State University in Professional Counseling. My education has prepared me for clinical work with couples, families, groups and individuals.
My counseling practice is informed by a foundation of Emotionally Focused Therapy. Additionally, I am a certified Prepare-Enrich facilitator and strongly believe in this therapeutic tool as a means to explore the many facets of relationships and to provide concrete direction for growth. This is one of the most widely researched assessment tools and has been considered the #1 Premarital and Marriage assessment for 35 years. It is useful for therapy because it looks at specific important factors in a relationship such as: relationship roles, spiritual beliefs, family and friends, sexual expectations, financial management, communication, conflict resolution, etc. pinpointing the couples strength and growth areas.

My experience has provided me opportunities to work within different settings and broaden my clinical knowledge. I have worked at a children’s center, drug and alcohol treatment centers, correctional facility, catholic diocese counseling center, corporate group events, couples workshops, and now private practice.
At Connective Counseling, I currently offer counseling services for couples, families and individuals in-person in Lake Saint Louis, MO and virtually across multiple states.
