Shane Kelsey, LGPC

Staff Therapist

My ideal client is someone who believes they are ready to change. I understand that clients come from all walks of life, backgrounds, and experiences. I believe that the most important person in the therapeutic process is the client and not the therapist. I think that it is the job of the therapist to help the client to facilitate their progress and support them in ways that best fit who they are as a person. My ideal client is someone willing to take the first step by asking for help and in doing so giving me the opportunity to be a part of their journey.
Through over 8 years in mental health I have made a concerted effort to constantly find ways to expand my professional experience. Over this time I have worked with a variety of teams in group & individual settings. Using DBT, CBT, Person-centered therapies I work to put myself in positions to learn useful information from both my colleagues and clients.
I’m well aware of how difficult it can be to take the first step to come to therapy or engage with a new therapist. I encourage potential clients to reach out with any questions they may have. I believe that therapeutic fit is the most important part of therapy and I am always available to answer questions/concerns even if I may not be the best fit for them.
