Hi! My name is Shelly Kessinger, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Friendswood, TX 77546. I specialize in marriage and couples counseling, and I have 10 years of couples counseling experience. I currently offer telehealth and in-office counseling.
I have always been passionate about relationships and communication. My parents divorced when I was a young child, and I often wondered why do some couples stay together and some don’t? What started as a childhood curiosity led me to my life’s work as a counselor.
For college, I went to the University of Texas at Austin, and I graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology in 2006.
In 2007, I went to graduate school at the University of Houston – Main Campus. In 2009, I received my Masters of Education in Counseling degree.
My counseling style is friendly, kind, genuine,
professional and solution-focused.
I love working with couples. I love teaching communications tips and tricks. And I love getting to the root of the relationship problems. I feel incredibly honored to hear my clients relationship histories and then to see the positive transformations.
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. Healthy marriages take work! 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, Bay Area, Webster, and League City neighborhoods. I also offer virtual counseling if that is more comfortable or convenient for you.
