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 issues, Family conflicts, Parenting issues, Anger management

I have been working with Shane for 1.5 years. It has been an amazing experience, she is a good listener and she is really good at analyzing my problems & thought patterns, she really helped me a lot and helped me changed lots of ingrained negative thoughts about myself. Now I feel more confident and comfortable to be just me.
Shane is absolutely amazing. She was sympathetic and understanding, no matter what the issue was. She provided me with judgement free guidance. I am very grateful to have worked with her.
I think Shane is in tuned with what I write. She has insights into knowing my problems, and she encourages me to be more analytical. She has a way of letting you step back, and look at the entire picture, as opposed to one stroke of the painting, so to speak. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends and/or relatives.
Shane is incredible on so many levels. She helps me understand the root of an issue without judgement and helps me arrive at my own conclusions. She is very attentive and helps me see a situation from another perspective. I appreciate her positive and grounded attitude and feel incredibly lucky to work with her!
She is amazing - very helpful, understanding, kind.
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!
Amazing, reliable, helpful. After all solution focused.
Thanks Shane! You were understanding, helpful and prompt. Look forward to speaking again.
She’s wonderful. It’s only been a month but if feel like she tries very hard to make a genuine connection.
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.
