Hi! My name is Shelly Kessinger, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor here in Friendswood, TX specializing in marriage and couples counseling. I have been working as a marriage counselor for almost a decade. My expertise is in working with relationships.
I like to get to the root of the issues in a relationship and identify solutions. I do not believe in blaming one partner in a relationship. Instead, I look at how both partners have contributed to the problems in the relationship.
Blaming does not work. Taking responsibility for your own actions and implementing healthy communication skills does work. In communication, how you say something is just as important as what you say.
In 2006, I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin.
In 2009, I then received my Masters of Education in Counseling degree from the University of Houston.
As for my personal life, I am married with 2 kids and 2 dogs. I have been with my husband for over 12 years which has absolutely helped me learn the importance of communication. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching Netflix, going to church, and spending quality time with my friends and family.
Feel free to call or email me if you have any questions about marriage counseling, couples counseling, or relationship counseling. My counseling office is located in Friendswood, TX 77546 but is accessible to Pearland, Clear Lake, Webster, and League City neighborhoods.
