Shelby Rodgers, MA, LPC
I’m passionate about helping individual adults and teens find their happiness and overcome current and past difficulties in their lives through faith-based counseling. As an eclectic therapist we will utilize multiple theories and techniques to personalize a treatment plan that caters to each client’s individual and specific needs.
Our first session will focus on building rapport. Come as yourself, leaving judgment and shame at the threshold of the therapeutic room. As we get to know each other we will start to identify key areas of difficulty and work together to come up with goals that can help you reach the best you there is.
I believe in working together to set doable goals and building a rock solid foundation that will be able to sustain you in the long run. I will be with you through the whole process and together we can get you to the best you.
