Waitlist for new clients
Connect with Jessie Shelhamer
I currently have a waitlist for new clients. I offer an open, supportive, and individualized approach, meeting each person where they are. Fostering a therapeutic relationship involves building trust as we navigate through distressing emotions, situations, and overcoming barriers. Sessions may range from learning and practicing coping skills to processing past traumas. My style is down-to-earth with open and honest communication, along with a bit of humor. Feel free to visit my website for more information: www.jessieshelhamer.com
I'm most experienced working with people who experience anxiety, depression, challenges from trauma, stress, and co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. My priority is to provide a safe space where you feel empowered to advocate for your needs.
Prior to Covid, animal-assisted therapy took place at Alley Cat Cafe. Participating in animal-assisted therapy has been shown to reduce physiological and psychological signs of distress such as heart rate, blood pressure, anxiety, and stress.
