About Me

Are you struggling with feelings that you can’t identify?
Are you feeling stuck?
Are you suffering from the effects of a trauma?
Are you looking for someone to help you reframe your thoughts?

If so, I can help you. I am a licensed professional counselor and a drug and alcohol counselor that brings 14 years of training, and decades of experience to my cognitive behavioral practice. Using an interactive speaking style, we will build an empathetic space that allows you to explore how your thinking is affecting your behavior. Then, together, we will create solutions that provide clarity and a path to reclaiming your voice.

I’ll bring patience, clinical training, and creativity to the table. You bring you. All of you. Therapy is a time to identify what is holding you back, leverage your strengths, and maximize your impact.

Helping patients face fears, and address obstacles like panic, fear, shame, guilt and inadequacy is one my favorite parts of the work we will do. These obstacles drain mental energy and cloud thinking. You don’t have to face these obstacles alone. I am ready to help you discover better health - are you?

Shelley is very helpful and gave me an eye-opening experience. Thank you for your help!

Shelley was there for me exactly where I was in my life. She allowed me room and space to share everything (trivial and significant) with advice, support, and camaraderie every step of the way. I'll always appreciate her help and support.

It was great having someone not sugar coating things and saying how it is. Not always what you want to hear but what you need to hear.

Shelley is amazing. She is not the first counsellor I have tried but she is the first I have stuck with. She has helped me immensely.

It has been along time since I have been in counseling. I had several counselors in that time. All were very professional, discreet and helpful. However, I really feel that Shelley is very professional yet, someone who I feel very comfortable discussing my personal issues to. She is very caring and easy to relate to. I would recommend her to anyone interested in counseling!

Really helpful and supportive. Very open minded and thoughtful.

Written by W.H. on Mar 23, 2019 after counseling with Shelley for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

Shelley matches with me very well. Her alcohol background helps especially with the concerns I have with a friend.

Written by A.M. on Mar 22, 2019 after counseling with Shelley for 2 months on issues concerning anger management

Truly unbelievable counsellor and human being. I have found out more about myself in the last 3 months than I have done in 10 years with other therapists on and off. Shelley is super SUPER bright, processes stuff like lightening speed, and is solution based. Truthfully, I was very tired with being asked standardized questions such as how 'something has made me feel'. I am very lucky indeed that it was Shelley who I was connected with whilst walking down a dark path. Shelley is experienced, is in the moment, and has been able to focus me towards moving forward and finding the right path ahead, this for me is a true gift.

Shelley is highly knowledgeable and always seems to know what she’s talking about. She’s genuine and that makes it so much easier to talk to her.

Written by A.N. on Jan 09, 2019 after counseling with Shelley for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Shelley is a very warm person who I immediately felt comfortable with. She listens, gives advice and makes you feel like you’re not abnormal or alone. She’s truly supportive and knows what she’s talking about. I’d recommend her to everyone who needs someone that can give support in a hard time and who likes it when therapy is more like a normal conversation with a friend than a session on the couch with the shrink.

The best!

Thank you, Shelley for your professional and empathetic support in this time of crisis.

Shelley is an expert in her field Besides that, she’s straight to the point, very active and sharp. She immediately identifies the issue and finds a solution to it. She’s flexible, understanding and supportive. I loved working with Shelley and will definitely work only exclusively with her. Highly recommended.

I love having Shelley to talk to and confide in. I'm struggling with my issues but it's so comforting to know that I can message her anytime and see her weekly for sessions from my home. I appreciate her so much and she was perfectly picked for me.

Written by E.V. on Oct 27, 2018 after counseling with Shelley for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and relationship issues

Very nice. Always responds quickly, and she knows what she’s talking about.

Written by I.R. on Oct 23, 2018 after counseling with Shelley for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

I strongly recommend Shelley, she's great! Pays attention, offers insightful input, but is also willing to learn. I enjoyed her no-nonsense, straightforward approach. Give her a try, you won't regret it!

Written by M.A. on Oct 10, 2018 after counseling with Shelley for 6 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

I tried two different counselors before finding Shelley and she was my light at the end of the tunnel. Her answers are professional and knowledgeable on how to deal with depression, PTSD and anxiety. She is a truly empathetic human being and an altruistic therapist who will give you the best advice possible for your situation and needs.

Written by M.A. on Oct 08, 2018 after counseling with Shelley for 6 days on issues concerning addictions, and self esteem

My experience with Shelley couldn't have been any better: Her way of being very nice and open herself while still being very serious about the matter at hand and extremely well researched had me open up and trusting her minutes into the first conversation. One of the most unexpected experiences was how much time she was willing to invest in me: Not only could I write her any day and get a very fast response, the live video counseling was where I was very surprised. My expectation was to be confined in a very sharp 30 min session to maximize the number of clients. But the opposite was the case: I could talk to her as long as I needed to, which was much superior to any in person counseling I have experienced until now. So if anyone out there still is wondering if she could be the right therapist, I'd always recommend to choose her.
