Mrs. Shelby Fischer, LMHC
Preferred Name: Shelby
When we allow fear to hold us back, we suffer. I believe that we all deserve balance and contentment. In order to achieve this, I take a holistic approach, looking at the person as a whole in terms of their body, mind, spirit, community, etc. I use humor to bring levity when it is needed. I take a compassionate approach, allowing for a safe and trusting environment for my clients. I specifically enjoy connecting with women through their struggles with motherhood, identity, relationships and self-esteem.
