We are a community of social researchers, clinical scientists, caregivers, humanitarians, and pioneers on a mission to empower all people to observe, heal, and reframe their life stories in ways that lift themselves and others.
We believe every answer for your life is already inside of you. Sometimes, it just takes a special relationship, a safe space, and the right questions to help you tap into your inner wisdom and power for any situation. Sholder is offering a whole new way to think about and approach mental well-being.
A New Paradigm In One-to-One Transformational Support
This is not counseling; we don’t give advice. This is not coaching; we don’t push performance.
This is Sholdering. We listen actively and deeply, ask powerful reflective questions, and use simple, effective tools to help people reconnect with their own inner wisdom in a confidential 50 minute session.
Sholder was founded consciously with deliberate values.
Curiosity opens up vast potential, while judgment closes the door to other possibilities. These two cannot co-exist in the same moment, so we choose to stay curious.
The real experiences of life happen inside of each of us. When we turn our focus inward, seeking to better understand ourselves, our innate wisdom activates.
There is profound intelligence and power inherent in the life force of every person. When connected and aligned with this force, we become empowered for all things.
How we approach and engage with ourselves and with others determines the outcomes we receive. Every connection is worthy of thoughtful intention.
Love has many forms: peace, grace, kindness, joy, forgiveness, and more. Love is ever-present and ready to express in every moment. We must simply allow.
Sholder Stands on the Shoulders of Luminaries

“With adequate thought in designing the program of care, training, and supervision, anyone in the community with a calling for mental health care can become an effective mental health care provider. To me, this offers the most transformative opportunity to reimagine mental health care around the world.”
