Who I Serve

Shelina specializes in Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) which is most helpful for people who struggle with living in the present, and end up feeling anxious, confused, sad, or numb. She works with individuals, couples, families, and corporations to mend broken relationships and foster healthy conflict management. As a nonjudgmental soundboard, Shelina consistently offers her objective understanding of your situation with ease. Shelina's ideal client is someone who is ready to hold themselves accountable, open to feedback, and prepared for change in order to benefit their relationships with others and (most importantly) themselves. Shelina is a graduate of Nova Southeastern University where she received her Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling. While in school, she also studied Forensic Psychology where she gained experience working with domestic violence survivors, and helping others heal from grief and loss. It is said that "you have to learn to love yourself before you can love another person". However, no one explains how to love yourself. How to love yourself is a personal and individual process. Not everyone experiences love the same way. Some of us become uncomfortable with compliments or gifts, others crave them. For all of us, love is a deliberate action.
