Dr. Shelby is passionate about entering into the depths of religious and relational trauma, anxiety, perfectionism & burn-out, body image, existential dread, grief, and chronic suffering. She prioritizes balancing compassion and challenge in therapy to unlock patterns of how we relate to ourselves, to others, and to the world around us. Her approach is typically a good fit for those interested in developing a longer term treatment with an interest in depth work, value a direct approach, and for those wanting "more." She addresses wants and needs, personal values, and increasing agency, compassion, and radical acceptance.
As a relational psychodynamic therapist, Dr. Shelby’s approach to therapy is depth-oriented, collaborative and focuses on the uniqueness of each relationship. She explores with each patient what it means to increase awareness and insight into their lives and views the therapeutic relationship as the key to unlocking conscious and unconscious patterns.
Wherever you are at in your process, her hope is to co-create a space open to deep and thoughtful self-reflection established gradually with trust and a sense of being safe enough to take steps toward healing, transformation, and personal fulfillment.
