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.
