Who Can Shelley Help?
Shelley is a Registered Social Worker (RSW) with a Master’s of Social Work (MSW) from Dalhousie University. For the past 14 years, she has worked as a social worker for the Alberta Public Service. Much of this experience has been as a first responder and supporting people who have experienced childhood trauma, family violence, substance use, grief and loss, separation and divorce, anxiety, depression, bullying, and workplace issues.
Shelley is also trained in Structured Analysis Family Evaluation (SAFE) Home Studies. This home study is the approved model used in Alberta for government, private, and international adoptions, foster care, private guardianship, and kinship care. Courts have accepted this home study format in cases in custody related issues of minor children.
Shelley brings energy and passion to her work through her strengths-based and holistic approach, and uses a variety of approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Narrative Therapy.
