Shelby Negro
Grand Rapids, MI
Specialties: ADHD, Anxiety Disorders, Autism, Depression, Somatic Symptom Disorders, Young Adults

Shelby has 10+ years of experience working in the mental health field with a variety of diagnoses such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, autism, somatic symptom disorders, and FNSD. While she enjoys working with individuals of all ages, she is passionate about working with teens and young adults

Shelby values the importance of human connection and feels strongly about taking the time to build and maintain a therapeutic relationship in order to foster trust and security. Her goal is to instill hope and empower others on their journey of self-discovery. She believes the client is the expert, and patiently holds space while they navigate their internal world and learn to access and embrace their inner resources.

Shelby grew up in Marine City, Michigan. Her hometown is beautiful, but being a small town, residents did not have much access to mental health resources, and it also lacked the diversity Shelby was looking for in her environment. As such, she moved across the state to attend Grand Valley State University to earn her bachelor’s degree in psychology and is a first-generation college student. While completing her undergrad and working at a behavioral health facility and psychiatric hospital, she became more passionate about advocating for the underserved and vulnerable populations.

Shortly after graduation, she began working at a children’s hospital as a psychometrist, focusing on assessments and was able to maintain a full-time job while being a full-time graduate student at Western Michigan University.

Shelby loves spending time with her husband and puppy, maintaining strong relationships with her family and friends, and 99% of the time can be found rewatching every episode of Friends. To use the words of dear Ross, Shelby can help you “PIVOT!” whatever you need to adjust in life.
