About me

Congratulations! You have taken a courageous step by seeking help!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Michigan with 26 years of professional work experience in a variety of settings including public schools and hospitals. I have successfully helped clients with such issues as stress and anxiety, family conflicts, motivation, self esteem and confidence, & depression. My style of therapy is very upfront, as I have found that being direct with clients (and them being direct as well) has been the most effective way to progress through challenges. At the same time, I work hard to treat everyone with respect and compassion. I also love to laugh, and utilize humor as part of my therapy regularly. I will work with you to develop a treatment plan that effectively meets your needs and increases overall happiness. Thank you for considering my support!

Shelley is a great therapist, It can be difficult to find a therapist that works for you, but from the first time I talked to Shelley I genuinely feel like she wants to help me and she always makes me feel like she hears my concerns and and gives me productive feedback in a way I can understand it.

Shelley Rychener is wonderful helpful , I look forward to a session where I had fought and bucked them off prior . I would recommend if you need the help reach out and see what's available , if not through this app another. Your fresh start may begin sooner than you thought. Go for it!
