Shea grew up in the small town Brenham, Texas and attended the University of North Texas for her undergraduate studies. After graduation, Shea moved to Greece hoping to escape her own relationship and identity issues. She was constantly looking for a quick solution to a much deeper problem and it was during this depressing season that she experienced a new depth and meaning to life. Having come to grips with her own brokenness, Shea wanted to learn how to help others navigate through their circumstances and stories. She returned to the States to pursue graduate school and finished her Masters in Biblical Counseling at Dallas Theological Seminary.
Prior to entering private practice, Shea spent time working at a sober living facility, here in Dallas, and was able to learn about addiction and family systems. Most recently, Shea has worked with women dealing with anxiety, depression, family of origin situations, grief and loss, identity and relational concerns, and trauma. Her personal experiences and own family of origin have cultivated a desire in her to work with people from a systemic perspective, seeing with her own eyes the ways in which strained and broken relationships can be redeemed.
In her spare time, Shea loves to travel, experience different parts of the world and be near any body of water. She also spends a lot of her time volunteering with nonprofits such as Young Life and is a board member for Melody of Hope.
