About

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.
Often, anxieties and depressive feelings can make you feel as if your life has become unmanageable. In a world where technology is changing the professional and interpersonal landscapes faster than anyone can keep pace, we will deal with the complexities of your life. I work with young people all the way up to individuals of retirement age and beyond.
I want to thank the many clients, who have invited me to participate with them on their healing journeys. I value the lessons that I've learned from all of you, and the resulting skill set, that has enabled me to continue to participate in this important effort.
