Chelsea B Shields

Marriage and Family Therapist

I am passionate about couples counseling. I help couples process and understand their emotions, communicate their needs and wants effectively, be completely vulnerable without fear, recognize and change destructive patterns within their relationship, and have the relationship they envisioned.

My Approach

My approach to counseling is rooted in the belief that all individuals are capable of an empathic, supportive, and genuine relationship. My framework is from an attachment based approach known as Emotionally-Focused Therapy. I believe that emotion and attachment are the core issues to many of life struggles.

My Background

I hold a Master's of Arts in Marriage, Couple and Family Counseling from George Fox University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Northwest Nazarene University. I primarily works with couples who want to strengthen their emotional connection. My goal in working with couples is to reestablish a relationship of trust, honesty and safety.
