Shellene Cornish

(LCSW-C, LCSW)

About Me

I'm a licensed clinical social worker with over 23 years of experience. Prior to completing my studies in social work, I spent 8 years in the United States Navy. I had the pleasure of living abroad and working with some wonderful people. I am also the mother of two children, one of whom is a severely disabled young adult. I understand the challenges families face when caring for a medically fragile loved one.

I have experience in various areas of social work but my passion over the past several years has been as a mental health therapist. I've worked in community mental health agencies providing counseling to individuals, families and school-age children . I am currently in private practice working with clients of all ages including young people from 12-19 years old. I enjoy working with teens and believe I give them an opportunity to share their concerns and feelings without being judgmental. I value what they have to say and encourage them to find solutions to their problems in a safe, warm and supportive environment. If you have a problem, I would like the opportunity to help you find a viable solution.

I usually wouldn't feel comfortable sharing any private information. I am the strong person who often is there for others, but I am glad that I decided to try therapy for some recent grief and anxiety issues. Shelley was so amazing at listening, supporting, and encouraging. She really made me feel heard, understood, and she gave solid advice that I was able to apply immediately. I really appreciate her.

Written by E.L. on Aug 29, 2017 after counseling with Shellene for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, sleeping, and self esteem

Shelley has been an amazing help. I was dealing with a lot of stressors at once--moving in with my boyfriend, in a new city for both of us; starting a new job, and being away from friends and family. I feel much better now about these big changes thanks to Shelley. I am very happy in my new home. Shelley is a great listener and a fun person to talk to because she always has a way of calming anxieties and being real with you. I highly recommend her.

Shellene (Shelley) has been wonderful. She has quickly helped me get to the root of some issues I've been dealing with and has helped me work through them step by step. She is kind and empathetic. I have been very comfortable working with her.

Written by R.E. on Mar 26, 2017 after counseling with Shellene for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, and anger

I was assigned to Shellene when I had my free trial with teen counseling, which was during a tough time with my family. During that week, Shellene was so understanding and positive, but she's definitely honest and tells it like it is. really enjoyed her quick responses and positive energy that I decided to continue with her after my trial was over! She makes me feel like I can tell her anything with ease and no judgement from her, like another mother figure in my life. She's always encouraging me and facing my fears head-on by providing her own personal stories, which makes me feel like I'm not alone with how I'm feeling.

Shellene has truly helped me through a difficult time in so many ways. She helped me see things in a different light. I love her positive and honest advice. It is so easy to open up to her. This women is a god send! In fact, if she wasn't my therapist, I would want her as a personal good friend. I am forever grateful for her.
