Shelena holds a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Jacksonville State University. I joined the CAPS staff in 2015 and I’m excited by the opportunity to work with SPEA students. I use a variety of approaches to help clients, depending on individual needs. However, my work is most influenced by cognitive-behavioral therapy. Additional areas of interest include adjustment issues, mood concerns, first/next generation college students, multicultural and diversity issues and reducing stigma for mental health treatment. My greatest reward as a therapist is helping clients explore ways to make changes in their lives that will allow them to look forward to the future with hope.
