Hello.  My name is Shay.  I’m so happy to be working with Being Human Well Life Services!


I previously worked as a teacher at two large group daycare centers, as well as a director.  I also worked as a supervisor at both a youth and a teen center.  More recently, I received a technical degree in counseling.


I was also the single mother of a son who struggled with a great amount of anxiety, panic attacks, etc.  Unfortunately, he turned to substance use in an effort to cope with these issues.  I learned firsthand about the stigma that comes with the disease of addiction and want every child to know they are special, regardless of their struggles, but also hope to teach them healthy coping skills they can use when making decisions of their own. As an adult & parent, I've learned the importance of self-care, which includes the setting of boundaries & I can assist you on your own journey of self-discovery & healing.


Having a positive impact in the lives of others is of great importance to me.  Sometimes, we need someone to take the time to truly listen to us or even just to be with us.  We also need to have fun.  We need to do these things with someone who doesn’t judge us, who understands when we’re struggling, who stands by our side and supports us until we figure things out, and who helps us to take action in an effort to reach our goals.  I hope to come on this journey with you as we learn and grow together (along with having a great deal of fun!)


I am very much a learner and enjoy reading educational books, etc.  I also enjoy being outdoors (weather permitting), walking/hiking, playing a wide variety of sports, listening to music/dancing, bowling, playing pool, playing board/card games, being around animals, etc.
