What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

Shelby is a Licensed Social Worker, who has been practicing since 2017. She graduated from University of Illinois at Chicago with a degree in Psychology. Then went on to obtain her Masters of Social Work at Aurora University with a focus in Addictions. Shelby believes in the power of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness as the backdrop for her clinical approach. Shelby focuses on the clients thoughts and feelings in relation to how they interact in relationships and with the world at large. Shelby also sees her clients as a part of a larger system (using Systems Theory) and works at further understanding how they present themselves in relation to the state of their environment, and the affect that has on their mental health. Her main areas of focus include anxiety, depression and trauma. In her spare time, Shelby enjoys spending time with her family, watching The Office and exploring her artistic side with photography.
