About Me

**Currently, I am accepting clients with only Friday availability.**

Hi, I am so glad you stopped by my page! BetterHelp is an awesome platform designed to meet you where you are at, whether that means chatting via video, phone, or chat, in the comfort of your own space. Chilling on your couch in your pajamas? No problem, sign on in for your appointment!

My name is Shelli and I would love to work with you, to help you with whatever you are struggling with right now. My past and current clients may describe me as someone who is easy to talk to, non-judgmental, caring, and funny (ok, I added this one, but humor is needed sometimes!)

A little about my background (the boring stuff)....I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC E.1901208) and Licensed Social Worker (LSW S.120927). I obtained my bachelor’s in Social Work with minor in Psychology from The University of Toledo in 2012. I then moved to Cincinnati, Ohio to start my masters program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, completing in the spring of 2015. I have worked in the community mental health field since 2013, and still do! I have worked primarily with adults for the past eight years. I have had extensive experience treating a widespread of emotional and mental disorders, and substance use disorders. My areas of strengths include treatment for depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, personality disorders, relationship issues, and self-esteem issues. During our time together, I will incorporate a variety of therapies including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

Most importantly, above all, I value the therapy relationship. My main focus is to provide a safe and secure environment where you feel comfortable to share, without judgement. I want you to feel comfortable and safe to share openly during our sessions, without intent to guard information or mask your thoughts.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Shelli Mens. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Shelli is a great and empathetic listener. She has been a great help through some tough times recently and responds with grace and professionalism.

Better Help couldn’t be easier to use and I recommend it to anyone who has even considered counseling. It’s easy-to-use and super confidential. I was always hesitant to start counseling because I dreaded taking the time to find a counselor that was a good fit. When I signed up, I took a very in-depth quiz and had great luck with my first match! It couldn’t have been easier.

I also love the journaling component and the fact that you can communicate with your counselor during the week through the easy-to-use portal!

Work with me!
