Welcome to a new awareness of self and your path in life. 

Psychotherapy offers us a path towards healing, integration, connection, empowerment and transformation. Through the process of undergoing psychotherapy we gain insight about our deepest needs, and learn about the tools we can use to help us let go of what is holding us back so that we can create a more fulfilling life.

Hello, my name is Shelley Holloway and my work as a therapist is rooted in the intersection of all things, and a deep appreciation and understanding of the complexity of identity and the human spirit.

 

I provide individual psychotherapy to adults (18+ years of age) dealing with a wide range of psychological issues. My approach is collaborative, non-judgmental, irreverent and adaptable to the clients individual needs and goals.

 

While I provide individual therapy for a wide range of emotional, spiritual, and behavioral issues, much like other therapists and counselors - my specialization in trauma informed, spiritually integrative work with marginalized identities and spiritualities sets me apart.

 

My mission is to assist you in finding your most authentic "higher" self ("who you would be if no one was watching") in a collaborative, powerful and irreverent manner (who knew therapy could be funny!?).

 

While I am skilled in many theraputic perspectives and utilize several traditional evidence-based treatment modalities, it is my own nontraditional theoretical orientation, lived experience and professional background that has culminated in a holistic perspective combining feminist & post-modern theory, recovery models, metaphysics, astrology, and intuitive processing. Whether you are a seeker or you are secular, our true sign posts will be your own Core Self that will lead us on a journey towards healing, connection, transformation and empowerment.

I am trained in and utilize several treatment modalities, such as Psychodynamic, Relational, Narrative, Feminist, Spiritually Integrative/Pastoral, Holistic, Strengths Based, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Expressive Therapy, Trauma & Recovery Informed Care, Transgender Affirmative Care, Attachment-Focused, Mindfulness, Meditation, Visualization, Jungian Psychology and my own theoretical orientation combining astrology, intuitive processing, connection, transformation and empowerment.
