I use a client focused approach to therapy. Deciding to seek counseling is a big step and I will make sure clients feel supported and informed. Clients can expect to walk away from sessions feeling supported and equipped with tools to help them better cope with the challenges of life. I look forward to meeting with you soon!

Shelly O'Donnell, MA, LPC, LCDC

Hello! My name is Shelly O’Donnell. I’m a native Austinite who loves the outdoors, my dogs, and naps. I attended Texas State University for both my Bachelors and Masters degrees. In my opinion, it’s the most beautiful and relaxing college campus in Central Texas. When not at work, you can find me trying new restaurants, spending time with family, or enjoying art/music/movies.

My counseling practice will always be a place where everyone is welcome, regardless of gender, ethnicity, race, creed, sexuality, religion, or other. You’ll find my counseling style to be relaxed, warm, and collaborative while never underselling the value of humor and connection.



The best part of personal growth is learning how to be honest and vulnerable with yourself. To do that sometimes you need someone that gives you the safe space to do that. Shelly has given me the space and the guidance to experience this growth. For that I am grateful!
