Hello and Welcome!
My name is Shelby Wilson and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have a masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from New Mexico State University. I have worked with clients experiencing a wide range of mental health challenges including substance misuse, trauma, anxiety, grief, and depression. I specialize in trauma, anxiety disorders, and issues specifically related to the military community.
I started my mental health journey working in an inpatient military unit focusing on trauma, PTSD, and substance misuse. I then started working for a crisis stabilization unit. During my time there, I was able to conduct short term, therapeutic interventions and provide clients with tools for crisis stabilization. There was also a focus on developing healthier coping techniques and improving self-care. I believe these experiences have helped me develop a broad range of therapeutic services and interventions that I am able to offer.
My therapeutic approach is eclectic but typically utilize CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), and Solution focused therapy. With me as your therapist, I offer a safe and supportive space to help cope with and process the challenges and achievements in your life. I believe in helping you develop insight, strategies, and tools to use outside of session to develop your goals. I believe my role as a therapist is to be a guide while encouraging self- empowerment, self-care, and self-awareness.

Shelby is an incredibly kind, patient and supportive counselor. I worked with her for about 4 months while struggling in a relationship. She listened and helped me process a wide variety of feelings and emotions and eventually I was able to leave my relationship. Shelby is an exceptional listener and makes you feel so comfortable and supported. She has great practical tips, worksheets and exercises that we did during and outside of our sessions. She is quick to respond on the messaging platform and very accomodating with scheduling. I would wholeheartedly recommend her, 10/10!
Shelby made me feel comfortable right away, and I walked away from my very first session feeling that it was a valuable use of my time. She is a perfect balance of being positive, supportive, and holding me accountable for the behaviors that we see. This service made it effortless to receive some direction at a time that it was greatly needed. Thank you so much!
