Shelley Berven, MSW, LICSW
Shelley is excited to be joining colleagues at Psych Recovery where she
will continue treating clients ages 16-86. After owning and running
Highland Park Counseling Associates for the past 6 years and serving
as their DBT Team Leader, she is looking forward to being part of a
larger clinic and focusing her energies more specifically on providing
mental health services.
Shelley sees herself as a family and systems therapist at heart, having
spent her formative years working with adolescents and school-age clients
and their families in community-based residential and school-based mental
health settings. These experiences taught her to understand and appreciate
more fully the difficulties individuals, couples, families, and groups
experience when interacting with multiple and often complex systems across
their life span. Shelley continues to enjoy all that urban living has to
offer including the energy of her favorite four-legged friend, Lucy, who
reminds her every day to "live in the moment". Shelley has
specialized training in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and EMDR.
She will be a full member of the DBT Team at PR.
