Meet Shelly

We all face difficult and often heart-wrenching challenges. As an emotion-focused therapist, I partner with clients through their specific hardships and transitions. This can include loss, divorce, empty-nests, bringing home a new baby, and other life changes. Some of my other specialties include grief, depression, anxiety, forgiveness, reproductive trauma, emotional health for both men and women, and much more. I am also an EMDR trained therapist who has worked with clients suffering from childhood and/or adult trauma. 


I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I'm a referred Family Services provider. I'm available to help clients who struggle with faith-based issues around the church, their identity in how it relates to the church, and their relationship with God. Each of us has a unique relationship with God, the gospel, and the church, and I approach each session and class with a sacred respect for that relationship.

I hold a BASW from the University of Washington Tacoma and an MSW from Boston University. Working together, I've help my clients find their own inherent strength and wisdom to encourage healing.
