I have 8 years of experience working with adults and children.
I believe every one has their own unique potential in overcoming adversity. Life is not easy and often times we need support and someone to listen to our fears, hopes, dreams. We sometimes, need a nudge in a certain direction that we can't clearly see. I can help provide that nudge with whatever your are struggling with and provide insight on how to get there. I also do life coaching. Life coaching is different than therapy in that you may need guidance but not have a psychological disorder.

With 15 years of experience in working with a wide range of populations – from individual to family systems, children through adults – I have developed an eclectic approach that I tailor to each individual’s needs.
Therapy is something that we can all benefit from at some point in our lives, yet the prospect of it can be overwhelming. I strive to provide a therapeutic environment that is non-judgmental, safe, supportive, and healing. I am person-centered, which means that you will drive the goals of treatment and we will work together to help you reach those goals. Whether your concerns are related to anxiety, depression, grief/loss, family or other life stressors, I welcome the opportunity to help you navigate them and take the steps to bring about change.

Seeking help can feel uncomfortable not only to those who have never sought therapy before, but also to those who have had negative experiences with counseling in the past. With over a decade of experience working with those who struggle with ADHD, Anxiety, Autism, Behavioral Problems, Depression, Parenting, Relationship Issues, Work Issues, etc., my goal is to create a laid back atmosphere where we work together to achieve your goals.

Are you unsure where to begin? The counseling process can be difficult to start. I consider it a privilege to come alongside others while they navigate through transitions, trials, and unexpected circumstances. Life is a journey full of unknowns and that can make life difficult to handle on your own. I want to assist you in achieving your goals and work at a pace that is comfortable for you. The work that we will do will be collaborative and based on your strengths. We will build a tool box of skills and inspire self awareness as you work toward achieving your goals.

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.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in McKnight, PA provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in McKnight build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
