Shelby Clarke, Marriage and Family Therapist Associate

*OPENINGS for Couples & Relationships*

I fully believe in the therapeutic process as being collaborative; after all, you, the client, are the expert on your life! Through our work together, I will provide an inviting space for you to be authentically seen and heard. I bring myself into the therapeutic relationship using humor when appropriate, and other qualities of my authentic self, in hopes that you would bring your full self as well. My style as a therapist is warm, expressive and inviting. I specialize in helping individuals struggling with body image, self-esteem, and relationship issues. I embrace working with clients of all backgrounds & perspectives.


Instructions for life: Pay attention.

Be astonished. Tell about it.

~ Mary Oliver


After graduating from Linfield University with my Bachelor of Science in Health Education, I went on to earn my Master of Arts in Marriage, Couple and Family therapy from George Fox University. My therapeutic approach pulls from Emotion-Focused, Person-Centered, Existential and Attachment lenses.

As a helper, I am enthusiastic about creating a welcoming, validating, and collaborative space. Together we’ll process what you’re going through, draw on your strengths, and explore where things have gotten stuck. We’ll gain insight, skills, and meaningful clarity for your next steps.

I can’t wait to come alongside you on your brave, healing journey!
