About Shay

There is never a right time to enter therapy. In fact, it is often a step we must take when we are deep in dissatisfaction, vulnerability, and perceived powerlessness. With immense appreciation for how hard it can be to make a commitment to work on ourselves and our relationships, Shay meets her clients at the door with warmth and compassion. She values collaboration and empowers clients to be in charge of their own progress.

Respecting not only the impact, but the importance of each person’s cultural, racial, gender, spiritual, and sexual identity, Shay provides an affirmative space where people are valued for the whole of who they are. She encourages change by helping clients to increase self-awareness, manage emotional boundaries, and improve relationship skills.

As a graduate of the Marriage and Family Therapy program at The Family Institute at Northwestern University, Shay has received extensive training in the areas of individual, couple, family, and group therapy. Her clinical interests include couples’ conflict; relationship satisfaction and intimacy issues; identity development; depression; multicultural issues in couples and families; LGBTQ issues; and life stage transitions.
