Meet Shirley, LCSW-R

Certified Therapist & Life Coach

I have dual Masters degrees in Social Work and Public Administration from the State University of NY at Buffalo and the State University of NY at Brockport, respectively. I trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) in 2014 and am currently working on certification. I have a special interest in the treatment of trauma, addiction and couples therapy.

  • EDMR

  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy

  • Dialectal Behavior Therapy

  • Schema Therapy

  • Internal Family Systems Therapy

  • Motivational Interviewing
