Shelley Millman, BA, MBA, MACP, RP(Q)

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), and Certified Coach Practitioner

Working with a therapist provides the opportunity to explore the things that truly matter to you. Through uncovering the stumbling blocks and triggers that prevent you from being the best version of yourself, we will collaborate together to create self-awareness, self-compassion, and self-acceptance – while determining new avenues to accomplish tangible goals that align with your values. Giving consideration to the ; you is an integral part of the therapeutic process – including those aspects that are painful and deeply imbedded, as well as your strengths, resources and aspirations.

Rather than pathologizing people and focusing on deficits, I see strengths and potential that may be blocked due to reactions to hurtful events in your life. We cannot undermine the painful reality of one’s experience of depression, anxiety, loneliness, loss, trauma, relationship strife, and other challenges, but we can address it through targeted therapy.

Don’t go through your hard times without the focused support that you need. I offer a healing, non-judgmental, safe space for you to explore your life experiences, the influences that have contributed to who you are today, and those that continue to challenge you. Small, consistent steps, or ‘micro-changes’, lead to enduring results. Take the first step!
