Shelby Plummer’s mission is to work with couples in counseling, figuring out the unique aspects of their relationship to foster, change, and further develop. Working with Shelby, couples learn to improve communication and foster safety, support, and pleasure in relationships.
 
As we grow as individuals, shouldn’t we find ways for our relationship to grow with us? Whether you are feeling lost, satisfied, or apathetic in your relationship, Shelby will provide you with the empowerment you need to feel like an expert in your partnership. 
 
Shelby takes a non-judgmental, discovery-based, and trauma-informed approach to individual counseling and couples therapy. She is particularly interested in working with people in the LGBTQ+ community, monogamous and polyamorous folks, and couples who may be struggling with sex-related issues, major life changes, pregnancy, and parenting concerns.
 
Taking a narrative, feminist, Adlerian, and existentialist approach to clients, Shelby believes that personal meaning is paramount and that a couple creates their story together within their larger cultural context.
 
Shelby is a graduate student in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program at Adler University in Chicago. She previously received her Bachelors degrees from Indiana University in English, Theater, and Gender Studies.
 
Shelby is currently involved in birthing trauma research and is actively involved in social justice activism. Shelby is always ready to recommend a book or self-care activity and uses her background in the Chicago comedy community to weave humor into sessions when it is appropriate.
