Therapist/Art Therapist

Maddie Gerig Shelly


Through a supportive, authentic, and unconditional therapeutic relationship, I will join you in a process of curiosity and compassion as we explore your experiences, thoughts, and feelings. Beginning therapy, wherever you are on your healing journey, is challenging and brave work. I draw on humanistic psychotherapy and methods of mindfulness, internal family systems therapy, and art therapy to help you become attuned to your emotions, body, and authentic self. I also will help you process your family and generational history, and explore how systems of oppression may impact you. I will honor your complex story and accompany you at your own pace.

I am experienced working with adults and adolescents struggling with mood and anxiety disorders, those who have experienced trauma and complex trauma, and people undergoing life transitions and identity exploration. Wherever you are on your journey, I am honored to meet you there.

I graduated from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA in 2022 with a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling and art therapy. I completed my clinical training as a Counseling Fellow at the Yale School of Medicine’s Child Study Center, Outpatient Clinical Services in New Haven, CT where I provided individual, group, and family therapy. I have worked as a therapist at the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago Sexual Violence Support Services, where I provided trauma therapy to individuals across the lifespan. I have completed additional trainings in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Sexual Violence Counseling, and Internal Family Systems Therapy.
