Hello! I am licensed in the state of IL (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) and have practiced as an individual and couples therapist for 25 years. My experience brings a breadth and depth of knowledge to the table with years of working with people experiencing depression, anxiety, life transitions, self-worth issues, addictions among other matters that may cause disturbance in one's life. Whether you are looking for safe space to support processing feelings or directive type of guidance I have the skill set to meet you where you are.
Allow me to share with you a little about my style. I think people can tell us what they are thinking and feeling but people don't cause their thoughts and feelings. I think that happens from a place below the level of conscious awareness. More than likely if what you are presenting was something to figure out solely from an intellectual level you wouldn't be coming to a therapist. It would probably already be resolved, done and dusted. Intellectual understanding is valuable and will happen. My approach allows change to be natural and long lasting through several modalities we can utilize in our work together. I intend to show up with compassion, presence, respect and desire to fully understand (along with some well-placed humor) to make healthy shifts.
I appreciate the time, initiative, and "lean in" it takes making steps toward a happier healthier life. I look forwarded to getting started!

Shelley is absolutely fantastic! I’m so happy I found her. She’s nice, friendly, a great listener, and she really pays attention to you. She’s been so helpful. I cannot recommend her enough!
Shelley is an extremely compassionate and helpful professional. She has a flexible nature and patient communication style. Her approach to healing the subconscious is working really well for me. I would recommend her to those seeking to calm the nervous system, to handle a crisis, or to navigate everyday life. Thanks so much Shelley!
Shelley is kind, caring, and patient. I appreciate her guidance and feedback. I enjoy our sessions.
Shelley has been so patient and understanding with me. She’s incredible at meeting me where I’m at, and every session is tailored to what I’m needing that day. She has really helped me to shift my perspectives about myself and also how I see the world to a much more productive light, I would 100% recommend her.
She is amazing and kind. Really gets your mind thinking.
I have never been in therapy before. Shelley has done a great job guiding me through her process. She is the perfect therapist for me. She is very kind. She really listens and connects with her client. So far the process has been beyond my expectations.
