Shelly M. Ossana, PhD

 
I am a licensed psychologist and have been practicing for more than 20 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 also work with the following issues and problem areas:

  • Couples
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Grief
  • Dissociative disorders
  • Interpersonal issues
  • Gay and lesbian issues (including couples work)
  • Life transitions
  • Family of origin 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.
