Hey there, hey!

I'm Shelly!

I am a trauma-informed, not your typical therapist.

If you've landed on my page, you should know there are two groups of people I work best with: 
spiritual/religious abuse (trauma)
and 
childhood attachment trauma.

This is my "jammie jam."

Spiritual and/or religious abuse and childhood attachment trauma have lots of similarities and yet are so vastly different.

Is this you? Do you have......

 

  • Trust issues, low self-esteem or low self-worth

  • Feelings of inadequacy,  guilt, shame, alienation, and isolation.

  • Fear of abandonment or rejection

  • Difficulty establishing healthy boundaries

  • Emotional dysregulation and difficulty expressing or managing emotions

  • Identity confusion or loss of sense of self

  • Hypervigilance, anxiety or depression

  • Difficulty forming healthy relationships (avoidant or codependent)


If you said "yes" or nodded your head while reading the list above I see you.  You don't have to stay stuck. You can experience transformation.


However the symptoms manifest in your life today, it all stems from negative beliefs held in the subconscious, and stored in your body. 


My role is to help your system unlock these blocks so you can have a better relationship with yourself first, and then healthier relationships with others. You become the author of your book of life.


Trauma creates change you don’t choose. Healing creates the change you choose.


Heal from your past.
Restore what was taken or lost.
Move into the life you deserve.
Reclaim your time!

I stand with individuals from diverse backgrounds, cultures, religions, sexual orientations, and gender expressions, offering support that honors and respects the uniqueness of each person.

I admit that I do therapy differently, but I won't apologize. I was born to be a disrupter.
