About me

Life is ever changing; the challenge is to be able to manage and keep moving forward while maintaining a positive and healthy mindset. Most of the time the answers to our questions, fears and even desires are just a matter of reaching forward to take action and working through it. Let's work together, I'm here to help.

We are communal beings and benefit from the assistance of someone coming along side us to help. That is what I believe therapy is a collaborative effort to reach your desired goals.

I am a graduate of Regent University (2011) with a Master's degree in counseling, a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Virginia, and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Florida.

As an outpatient therapist, I enjoy working with individuals, families, and children. I have extensive experience working with groups, individual counseling, premarital, marital, couples, family relationships, adults, adolescents and children. I have worked with children in schools as a therapeutic day counselor, intensive in-home counselor working with at- risk children and their families. I have also facilitated support groups for individuals dealing with depression, anxiety and bipolar.

Dr. Shirley is a fantastic therapist! She really takes her time to learn and listens. She’s intentional with her sessions and makes sure that everything is covered. She offers resources often and helps hold you accountable in a loving way. I personally love how I can speak freely about my Jesus and she’s right there with me. If you’re in need of a compassionate therapist and want to actually heal and grow. She is awesome

It's too soon to give a thorough review but our first session and follow up has been good. She seems very experienced with not only the professional skills but also in life with wisdom in general. Our first session was prompt and was a good "getting to know you" experience. I look forward to working with her

Mrs.Louisor is an angel on earth! She is great at listening while also giving advice. She validates my thoughts and gives me feedback on topics I need guidance on. She is the first therapist who I felt was truly compatible with my needs since treatment.

Ms. Louisor listens patiently and asks the right question which helps me to address an issue. I cherish the 2 sessions that I had with her which helped me a lot. No doctor, friend, sibling, or even a parent was able to help me the way she did...

Shirley is a great listener and very attentive to whatever the situation is and allows you to explain what is going on with you at that time. I appreciate her giving me golds to work on, helping me figure out my golds. Thank you we all need someone to hear us out so whatever you are holding to can be released, thank you again.

You know a therapist is good when you look forward to your session with them, and want to share journal entries or milestones in your personal progress/life journey. I feel heard, understood, and relieved during my sessions with Shirley
