Shayla DeVisser, LCSW

Welcome to my therapy practice! With over 14 years of experience as a social worker, my career has spanned a diverse range of roles, including work in non-profit organizations, hospital settings and counseling. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Eastern Washington University and furthered my education with a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Boise State University.

My commitment to enhancing my therapeutic skills led me to complete a counseling fellowship at Boise State University. Additionally, I am certified in TEAM-CBT and Emotion Focused Therapy, two approaches that enrich my capability to provide effective therapeutic support.

This extensive background has equipped me with a solid foundation for offering compassionate, evidence-based therapy. I am dedicated to helping my clients navigate their challenges and achieve their personal goals, drawing upon a broad spectrum of techniques and theories tailored to meet each individual’s unique needs.

Connecting Nature, Nurturing Minds

Beyond my professional background, I have a deep appreciation for nature and outdoor activities. You can often find me digging in my garden, enjoying the tranquility of paddleboarding, exploring the mountains, or gliding through the snow on my skis. Since 2012, Boise has been my home, where I share my life with my partner and our furbabies.

I’m passionate about helping individuals and couples find clarity, healing and growth in their lives. Whether you’re seeking support for personal growth, overcoming challenges, or improving your relationships, I’m here to provide a safe and supportive space for your journey. Together, we can work towards a more fulfilling and joyful life.
