Hello, I'm Anne Shirley, LMHC and Clinical Supervisor . Anxiety, Depression, Child/Family, and Couples are my specialties.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Orlando, FL
I have many years experience working with children and adolescents. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Education and a Master's Degree in School Guidance Counseling. I have helped children and teens with mild symptoms of adjustment issues to severe suicidal ideation. I have many tools in my toolbox that I have used over the years and communication and rapport building tools to gain trust for children and teens to help them feel comfortable in disclosing their private experiences and thoughts.
I have many years experience helping couples talk about their unique issues in their relationships and help them learn to communicate effectively by learning healthy strategies and communication tools to have a win win and and not a lose lose situation. Relationships can become closer again and couples get back their former trust and passion and feel loved and accepted by each other. I have seen much success with couples counseling and recommend it highly.
I am passionate about helping clients with generalized anxiety , social anxiety, Agoraphobia, and PTSD. I have many years experience helping clients learn what is causing their anxiety and find tools to help them learn to replace negative thoughts and positive thoughts, use mindfulness strategies, talk therapy to alleviate stress and find out what is causing the stress so clients can cope.
