About Shelly

Prior to becoming a Therapist, I worked in advertising in NYC.  I always enjoyed meeting new people, identifying their needs, and collaborating to find solutions that are best for them.  I felt a sense of fulfillment helping individuals reach their goals and realized I wanted to focus more on individuals in a therapeutic setting.  I left the corporate world and completed grad school.  

My career as a mental health therapist began with my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Capella University in 2014.   I began serving in underserved communities, working with a wide array of clients in several populations: substance abuse, Department of corrections, Department of Children and Families, Juvenile Justice etc. and gained invaluable experience working with women who were pregnant and on drugs.  I later worked with adolescents in a high school and now with court-mandated parents working towards reunification with their children.


I believe in providing a supportive, nonjudgmental space for healing and growth and apply different therapeutic modalities to empower clients to change negative thinking patterns and find solutions. I believe in creating a safe space for clients to grow and heal and use a collaborative approach to help them reach their goals.  I have served clients representing a wide array of cultural, socioeconomic, and racial identity and provided psychotherapy to individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, self-doubt, PTSD and help couples experiencing relationship difficulties, focus on targeting negative thinking patterns and unhealthy behaviors.   Currently, I have a provisional license in FL and am trained in, circle of security, child parent psychotherapy and EMDR.  When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, bowling, movies and spending time with my family and friends.  As your therapist, I will meet you where you are and collaborate with you so you are able to get to where you need/want to be.
