About Shelly Smith
Even while feeling successful in some areas of life, it’s easy to get worn down and feel like we aren’t living as fully as we’d like. Therapy creates an opportunity for you to take time for yourself, to think through what you want to be different, and to fix what’s not working.
In therapy, I often work with busy professionals who are trying to balance life's responsibilities and overwhelm. I've worked extensively with couples to improve their relationships. One of my specialties is helping parents navigate challenges and find joy in their relationships. I use an integrative approach to therapy and encourage self-care practices to help you tap into your resources for healing and growth.
Together, we will create a plan for you to achieve your goals and create lasting change in your life.
I have been interviewed as an expert and mentioned in SELF, Chicago Tribune, Public Radio, Best Life Online, Online Counselling Podcast, and the Selling the Couch Learning Library.
