Do you need some ideas for your next Relief Society evening or 5th Sunday? I've created several classes on mental and emotional health that are geared toward members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. These classes teach strategies you can use at home in your effort to improve your daily life. If you're interested, please fill out the form below or check out the "free classes" page to see what I can offer at your next gathering.
Learn the role of anxiety in helping us navigate life and some strategies to create a healthy relationship with it.
When we start to understand the many facets of perfectionism, we can begin making the necessary changes to bring joy back into our lives.
This class is helpful for both those who suffer from depression and their loved ones.
Understanding another and being understood is one of the greatest gifts we can offer to ourselves and others. This class can help you foster both.
Contrary to popular belief, we can't cherry pick our emotions. When we blunt our difficult feelings, such as sadness, we're also numbing our desireable emotions, including joy. Instead, we can focus on emotional regulation and learn to treat all emotional experiences with compassion and safety.
Learn how gratitude can offer you emotional, spiritual, and mental resilience, creating a stronger sense
If you're interested in any or all of these classes, send me a quick note, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Please, don't send any personal information through this message.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
These classes were professionally presented, informative, and thought provoking. I learned how to recognize and label my emotions along with how to manage stress, anxiety, and depression. Highly recommended!
I attended these classes and gained so much insight about myself and how I can better deal with others. Shelly's educational background and spiritual commitment to the gospel qualify her to eliminate many myths, both in the church and in society, about mental and emotional health.
Shelly's classes were full of information. Her power points and handouts were helpful additions. Each topic was relevant for many people who could relate to her classes for themselves or someone they knew.
The Journey of Gratitude
Are you looking to strengthen your gratitude practice? My latest workbook, "The Journey of Gratitude," can help. The prompts included in this workbook will guide you in your effort to deepen your feelings of gratefulness. You'll also learn how to become aware of the gratitude imposter, toxic positivity and how authentic gratitude affects the brain. This workbook is a must if you're interested in expanding your understanding of gratitude and exercising it in ways that are unique to you.

As a therapist, one of my greatest joys is helping people overcome the barriers that have kept them stuck. My goal for each client is healing and empowerment. My private practice, the classes I teach, and my writings reflect that aspiration.
