Shelly Ossana, Ph.D.

Shelly Ossana

I am a licensed psychologist and have been practicing for more than 30 years. I work with adult clients and have specialized training in working with couples, childhood trauma, and the application of cognitive/behavioral techniques to changing core beliefs and patterns that interfere with present day functioning.   I feel honored to be part of each client's unique process of change, healing and growth.

I also work with the following issues and problem areas:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Grief
  • Dissociative disorders
  • Interpersonal issues
  • Grief
  • Life transitions
  • Relationship concerns
  • Family of origin issues
  • LGBTQ+ (including couples)
  • Aging
  • Couples
  • Work stress and career issues

I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor that strives to help clients develop the skills, resources and greater self awareness to achieve their desired goals.   In order for therapy to be effective, I believe a felt sense of connection, safety, and respect are essential ingredients for my clients.
