Hi, I’m Shelly Ware, the founder, and owner of The counseling clinic. My experiences as an African American women as well as observing the experiences of other women of color influenced my decision to become a therapist.
Growing up I always felt different from others and didn’t realize I was an introvert until I was in my late 20’s. That discovery was a huge shift for me when I learned that there was a name for the way I experienced the world.
I also grew up in a Step-family household where I was the youngest and only girl. Ever since I was a child people have opened up to me and told me “all their business.” I’ve always been curious about people and what makes do the things they do. I love helping people reach their fullest potential and helping them make the best of their life circumstances.
I often utilize the following methods to help the client’s I serve to become their best selves.
- Aspects of Yoga
- Resources and Linkages
- Education to improve Emotional Intelligence
- Improving awareness of self loving vs. self harming thoughts, feelings and behaviors
- Date coaching
- Stepfamily coaching
I believe that high functioning people hold the answers they seek within themselves. I also believe there are things that some of us are not aware of; that’s where education comes in.
I believe in helping my clients to become curious about themselves in terms of why they do the things they do. If you are my client and you become stuck and are not able to discover the answers from within yourself. I won’t leave you hanging. I will provide education and resources to help guide you in the right direction.
