Jacqueline Shelton-Espinosa


About Me

In my 15 years providing clinical therapy I have worked with various individuals experiencing different life challenges. My "ideal" client is one that is looking for guidance and support to resolve mental health issues, life stressors, transitional issues, and/or identity issues. The goal is to create a connection and from that connection build a bridge to healing and recovery.

Social justice drives the work that I do personally and professionally. I specialize in the following: -Anxiety -Depression -Bipolar -Schizophrenia -Personality Disorders -Trauma -LGTBQ -Women’s Issues -Oppression based trauma -Life -Racial Identity Challenges.

Therapy is not about weakness, it’s about strength. The courage to face the pain, accept it, and continue on despite it. We are on a journey together, one that includes tears and laughter. Authenticity in terms of my own experience and journey, along with the use of humor, allows me to create warm, safe space in order to develop a strong therapeutic bond.

Jacquelin Shelton-Espinosa is a wonderful counselor. She is a supportive listener who creates space for patients to air out what they need to air out. She provides helpful and insightful follow-up questions as well as recaps on my growth in relationships over time. She is very sweet and we have had a few moments that felt very real and honest on a human level. A very fulfilling experience!

Jacqueline has been there for me every step of the way and has only encouraged the best from me. Getting counseling for myself has to be one of the best things I've ever done, and Jacqueline helps make that a reality no matter how hard I probably make it for her!
