"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.

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.
