This opens the door to my client's awareness and understanding of their emotions and behaviors.

Hi, I'm Dr Shelly Hanlon. I'm a licensed and board certified clinician with over 30 years of experience. My approach to practicing psychotherapy is to first work collaboratively with you, on identifying and harnessing your innate strengths, and talents. Then together, we will work in a safe and comfortable setting to develop strategies and "life hacks," that will ensure therapeutic change and personal growth. By analyzing existing patterns, within the context of one's own life experience, we will develop a behavioral approach that will result in a greater sense of empowerment and the opportunity for life long success.

I focus to help you reduce anxiety, increase coping, improve communication, and help you align your values with your life. I work to help people become more in tune with themselves and their body to gain awareness you need to live the life you want to live. One of my strongest beliefs about a client/therapist relationship is a therapeutic alliance. I will work with you to develop a relationship of trust so we can work together to help you achieve your passions in life. I tend to work in the moment with you to explore maladaptive patterns and help you transform old patterns into ways of being that will overall work better for you.

Human beings are deeply wired for connection and thrive in relationships that provide safety, love, and unconditional acceptance. When we find ourselves alone, isolated, and disconnected, especially when our relationships are suffering, we struggle with self-doubt, shame, and beliefs that we are undeserving and unloveable. It doesn't have to be this way. My goal is to create a safe and compassionate space for you to explore your story and deepen your self understanding, putting you on a healing path to freedom, joy, and connection.

My clients are interested in increasing their knowledge of self. They are willing and open to examining their problems and sharing their personal insights and reflections. Trained in CBT, Gestalt Therapy and EMDR, I am eclectic in my approach and believe that treatment is a collaborative effort between client and therapist. I believe that the goal of treatment is to increase a client's awarness and focus, so that each client can learn to understand and moderate their moods; and make the changes or shifts in behavior that are needed for each client to meet his or her individual needs.

The concept of therapy can be intimidating... My goal is to make it comfortable for you to discuss your situations by providing an honest, non-judgmental atmosphere, while offering support and validation. Throughout my career, I have helped individuals cope with stress, anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem, as well as grief and loss, problems within family systems and relationships, and trauma-related issues. I have helped individuals dealing with addictions and substance abuse, and have also helped young adults in higher education transition to new environments and social settings.

On our journey it can be helpful to have someone to help us read the narratives which often define our lives. Some of those narratives keep us from experiencing what we want for ourselves now and in the future. Since graduating with a Masters in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology in 2010, I have been working as a therapist with people in various stages of life. A relationship between a therapist and client can provide someone with a deep reflection of how they live and are experienced. I believe therapy can give us the opportunity to rediscover our story in a new way. Real change is possible.

If you’re looking for a therapist, you're ready for something in your life to change. Are you tired of trying to figure things out on your own? Are you struggling with your important relationships? Do the people you usually turn to for guidance no longer seem to know how to help? Whatever brought you to this point, your regular ways of making yourself feel better are no longer enough to restore your peace of mind. You don’t need to deal with all of that alone.

At this time, and throughout 2021, I am not able to accept new clients. At times, people need a safe and supportive environment to express their thoughts and feelings. Counseling is an opportunity for people to gain: awareness, acceptance, insight, and identify tools for relaxation and problem-solving. Counseling is a therapeutic relationship wherein your voice is heard.

While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.
