I am 32 years old. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Illinois and received my Master’s degree in Psychological Counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University in 2011. I have experience with providing counseling for a wide range of concerns including stress, depression, anxiety, relationship issues and career challenges.
My counseling style is warm and engaging, and I have a gentle and non-judgmental style that creates a supportive environment for my clients. I use a client-centered approach with the belief that everyone has the capacity towards growth and healing. My role as a therapist is to create a safe space to build upon my clients’ existing strengths as well as to provide new tools and insight. I do not believe that there is a “one-size-fits-all” approach to therapy, therefore each session is tailored to each individual’s unique needs. I use a combination of strength-based, cognitive-behavioral, insight-oriented and motivational techniques in my counseling to help my clients problem solve and achieve their goals.
It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support and empower you as you go through this challenging time. I look forward to helping you the best way I can!
- Stress, Anxiety
- Self esteem
I also have experience in Relationship, Family, Parenting, Anger

I’ve had an incredible experience working with Shane! She is very understanding and helps me work through problems I am having in different aspects of my life. She has been a tremendous support to me these past few months I’ve worked with her!
Shane has always been professional, and I feel I can really confide in her. She explains things thoroughly when I ask her a question, and I especially like it that she asks me questions, which, I think is very important. Than is partly the reason I started up with her., again. In fact, I'm giving up my shopping spree to have sessions.
Amazing, reliable, helpful. After all solution focused.
Thanks Shane! You were understanding, helpful and prompt. Look forward to speaking again.
I have been speaking with Shane Mehta for about two weeks now. I feel like I write too much, but she always addresses everything I say with attention and patience. She is trying various methods with me to see what works best. I feel confident of making progress in my mental health if I keep working with her.
She’s wonderful. It’s only been a month but if feel like she tries very hard to make a genuine connection.
I have been talking to Shane for 4 months and she has helped me through so many stressful events and difficulties in my life. Most importantly, she listens to me and understands me and gives me so many different perspectives to help me better understand my personality. She is a great person.
Shane has helped me remember who I am at my core, and continues to help me grow and gain confidence in myself and my life.
She is just amazing!
Shane is attentive in responding and honest with her thoughts. She has asked me questions that I’ve never thought of and has allowed me to have self realizations because of it. I truly enjoy talking to Shane and have already felt progress in myself.
Aside from being incredibly empathetic and knowledgeable, Shane cares about me. I genuinely feel that way -- that she wants me to get better, and she will do her best to get me there. The thought alone, that she is on the other side of the message board listening to my thoughts, guiding me and supporting me, calms me, and gives me great strengths to go forward. I couldn't have asked for a better counselor to treat my anxiety.
Shane has been wonderful. Encouraging, understanding and able to sum up my issues with a few words which makes me feel so understood.
I have found Shane to be flexible, caring, and insightful.
I also appreciate that she tailors our work to fit the practicalities of my life.
Shane Mehta has been great. Highly recommend.
Shane has been so wonderful with helping me process emotions and feelings. She is responsive and asks thoughtful questions.
Shane has been very helpful so far and although I need to be able to find more time to talk and check my messages... so far has been extremely positive and helpful!
I've had a great experience so far with Shane. I feel like she understands me and has helped me make progress towards accepting and overcoming the challenges I'm facing in such a short amount of time and I look forward to continuing to work with her.
I think Shane's comments are appropriate, compassionate, and encouraging. She really addresses my problems, and gives good advice. She lets you draw your own conclusions, and gives a lot of thought to how she responds. (with sensitivity) I would like to continue my subscription with her. Very helpful.
Shane is the best - thoughtful, responsive, insightful, and understanding. My time working with her helped me more than I can express.
She is amazing. She has helped me so much in my difficult times. She is quick to respond and discuss and resolved the issue. Betterhelp and my therapist are great.
Shane is very easy to speak to. She is very reassuring and speaks the truth even if its not what you want to hear.
Shane is exactly what I've been looking for in a therapist. She is kind, warm, non-judgmental, analytical, and asks lots of really helpful questions to provoke new insights and perspectives. I have really benefited from working with her.
