Shelby Sandlin

(MS, LPC)

About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor in Colorado with experience working with individuals in a number of settings including homes, agencies, and schools. I am passionate about working with individuals struggling with grief, depression, anxiety, and the effects of trauma. I have also helped a number of individuals experiencing career burnout, identity issues, and life transitions.

My counseling style is warm and empathetic with a client centered focus--meaning I believe you are the expert of your life! It is my job to provide insight and ask questions that facilitate the uncovering of capabilities and strengths already possessed. My approach combines attachment based, humanistic and cognitive behavioral strategies. I believe there is value and power in feeling seen and heard; it is my hope to provide that to each client I am able to work with.

Reaching out for help takes immense courage. If you are ready to take that first step, I am here to walk alongside and empower you! I look forward to hearing from you!

She’s a great support system. She is great to add, in addition to your support system, or even for her to join simply to your support system!

I love working with Shelby! She’s as empathetic as she is goal oriented. She understands my concerns and also wants to help give me tools to work through them. I’ve only seen her for two sessions and already I feel like I’ve come so far!

I’ve been working with Shelby for a few weeks now and already she’s helped me to see my problems from a new perspective and given me tools and resources to improve. She’s a great listener and always has something encouraging or thought provoking to say. I’m excited to keep working with Shelby and to see what I’m able to accomplish in the end ☺️

I am completely new to counseling, and Shelby has been extremely kind and welcoming. She is helping me learn things about myself in order to figure out the root of my anxiety. She is very knowledgeable and helpful, and has a great approach to counseling.

Shelby is the best counselor ever. Even though we have never met face to face, she has helped me so much.
