About My Clients

Dr. Shelby values mutual curiosity and spontaneity, a desire to reflect, and the unique spark that is created by people engaging in being truly present with one another. Her approach is typically a good fit for those interested in longer term treatment with an interest in depth work who crave "more." Areas of Specialty: Religious and Spiritual Trauma, Relational Trauma, Perfectionism and Burnout, Existentialism, Anxiety, Identity Exploration, Body Image, Relationship Therapy, and Grief.

My Background and Approach

As a relational psychodynamic therapist, Dr. Shelby’s approach to therapy focuses on transformational change through the context of relationship. She engages her patients with a balance of acknowledging pain and suffering while also holding compassion and gently moving alongside each patient towards their own unique healing. Dr. Shelby takes this depth-oriented approach to provide her patients with long lasting change. In the context of treatment, Dr. Shelby prioritizes the authenticity of the moment, attending to and unlocking conscious and unconscious patterns of how we relate to ourselves, to others, and to the world around us. She is particularly interested in helping people work through past wounds and shining a light on all the “parts” of a patient to help cultivate a whole cohesive sense of self. She addresses meeting wants and needs, personal values, and increasing agency, compassion, and radical acceptance.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Dr. Shelby is trained and experienced in working with LGBTQIA+ folks and non-heteronormative identities or relationships. Wherever you are at, her hope is to co-create a space open to deep and thoughtful reflection established gradually with trust and a sense of being safe enough to take steps toward healing, transformation, and relational fulfillment.
