"Knowing what is right is like deep water in the heart; A wise person draws from the well within." (Proverbs 20:5)
Helping individuals and couples learn skills that result in useful thinking, mindful living and healthy relationships is deeply satisfying to me. I enjoy working with couples who are either preparing for marriage, strengthening their connection or hoping to restore trust and wholeness. I also work well with individuals who recognize a need for change and are willing to try new ways of thinking and behaving.
My perspective on life and human behavior has been significantly shaped by my Christian worldview. I seamlessly blend biblically-based principles, scriptural support, and inspirational insight with cognitive behavioral therapy and solutions-focused brief therapy to help clients meet emotional health and spiritual health goals. As a strength-focused therapist who collaborates with clients in taking practical steps, I would consider it a privilege to walk with you. I bring keen awareness, empathy and steadfastness to the counseling process that facilitates insight and growth.

I enjoy my sessions with Shelly and I always feel good about myself afterwards. I talk a lot and can go on tangents but Shelly always keeps up so I know she’s truly listening.
Shelly has been wonderful. She listens and then offers ways to work through your anxiety and stress. She has been very helpful to me.
Shelly is great!
Shelly and I have just started the therapy process and I have already received such value from her input. She is following up with me more often and regularly than I expected. She is remembering and addressing my specific issues and goals. She has provided some good tools and resources to help in my journey. I would highly recommend her to a friend or colleague.
