About Our Team

Meet Michele Shelly Boggus, LCSW

As a member of the mental health profession, I am deeply humbled to be invited to share in the experiences of those who have struggled, it is a calling which I do not take lightly and strive to develop hope in all those I come in contact with. I have worked with families, children, adults and couples in community mental health, hospital and group private practice settings. I have experience working with those who struggle with complex trauma, mood disorders, transitions and interpersonal relationships.
I have a rich history working with family and children as I previously owned and operated a preschool for nearly 25 years. I take an empathetic approach to life challenges and believe in working together to cultivate growth through deeper understanding of the obstacles that life can present. I am committed to supporting individuals develop solutions to manage life’s challenges and achieve self-determined goals through empowerment and reenergizing the human spirit through exploration, reflection and discovery. Through an integrated approach of mind/body/spirit and collaboratively exploring strategies which help individuals determine and achieve goals, my client-centered approach is tailored to individual needs and utilizes the understanding that you are the expert of your life. It is a great honor to join with my clients on their path to healing, joy and self-determination.

Meet Kelly Wilson, MA, ASW

This is a journey we are walking together and you have trusted me to merely be a guide to a destination you choose. I would like to work with you towards the life trajectory you desire for yourself. As a guide for your growth, I will work diligently to build an environment where you can heal, grow and thrive. I specialize in trauma and have extensive experience working with PTSD, combat veterans and their families. I have had the honor of working with a wide variety of populations in a number of capacities. I have helped many families as a school social worker, provided mental health services to the homeless population, worked with Alzheimer’s patients and their loved ones and worked with clients in recovery from drugs, alcohol and sex addiction. Each person, couple or family has had their own desires and goals for treatment. Together follow our roadmap to achieve your idea of success, and take actionable steps to grow in and outside of our sessions.

I work with a very furry co-therapist named Simon. He is not a big talker but he is a professionally trained service dog and is happy to give hugs, comfort, or simply nap in the corner of my office during sessions. I have been extensively trained in Neurofeedback and use Neuroscience based practices, Trauma informed Care and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in my practice. I am comfortable working with a wide range of individuals and couples. Outside of my sessions I look for every opportunity to continue my growth as a therapist through self and curriculum-based education. I am a strong believer in the mind body connection and teaching clients how to heal by understanding the brain’s effects on their physical and emotional wellbeing. I am client centered and solution focused and will meet my clients where they’re at in order to attend to the unique needs of each individual. I believe that each client has the answers to their own life’s struggles, and through providing interactive feedback, again I am merely a guide to assist with unraveling the tangled areas that make perspective difficult to see. I will assist my clients to arrive at their own personal resolutions for themselves.

I appreciate diversity and respect and honor people of all ethnic, racial, cultural and spiritual backgrounds. It is of utmost importance to me to honor a client’s right to decide how little or how much they would like to integrate faith or spirituality into their counseling sessions.

Meet Helen Garrett, MA, AMFT

I cultivate my practice around a profound gratitude for the gift of hope: a hope for experiencing freedom from pain of what happened in the past and certain emotional wounds you may currently be carrying or re-living in the present. I am passionate about helping people achieve healing by overcoming the “overwhelm” and thriving through transformation. Every day I am honored to dwell in moments when the individuals, families, and couples who come seeking therapy bring with them a tremendous strength of heart and courage of character.

I began my journey as a family focused therapist in a school-based counseling program working with children and teens struggling with issues of depression, anxiety, ADHD, chronic illness, autism spectrum disorder, phobias, bullying, and self-injuring behaviors. Using the principles of Emotionally Focused Family Therapy, my objective was to support a new trajectory of exploration and growth within the family to uncover new patterns of safety and greater resilience. I gained experience working with adults at a non-profit engaged in a mission of solving family homelessness and addressing the deeper, systemic causes of poverty and addiction. I provided therapy services for individuals with trauma, complex PTSD, dual diagnosis and co-occurring mood disorders, dissociation, adult ADHD, career instability, stress, and grief/loss. I have taught workshops on parenting and facilitated groups using ‘Seeking Safety’ – a treatment modality for individuals experiencing co-occurring PTSD and substance use disorder.

I have specialized training in EMDR (Eye Movement De-sensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy (Part 1 & 2), Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy externship, Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectical Behavior Therapy for adults and adolescents, and Bowen Family Systems therapy focused on how generational patterns influence current relationships.

I received a BA in Sociology from the University of Puget Sound and an MA in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Azusa Pacific University. I integrate a foundation in Christian faith principles to encourage and promote spiritual and moral development. I enjoy working with clients of all faiths and spiritual alignments.

Meet Jenna Tattersall, MA, AMFT

As a mental health professional, my goal is to help equip you with the tools to navigate life’s challenges. I am passionate about helping my clients reach their full potential. I have experience in treating young children, adolescents, adults, and families. It is a gift to work with clients of all ages and life stages.

I have experience working in private practice treating children, teens, adults, and families. With children and teens, I have experience in treating anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, obsessive thinking and compulsive behaviors, family conflict, divorce, self-esteem, shame, self-harming, and social challenges. With adults, I have experience treating anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma, abuse, relationship stress, co-parenting and life transitions. I also have a few years of experience providing mental health treatment in school-based settings for elementary, middle, and high school students.

My counseling style is warm and compassionate. My mission is to develop clients’ awareness of feelings, strengthen their communication skills, and build resilience. I develop individualized goals, treatment plans, and interventions that are specific to each client. When working with children and adolescents, I love to adopt creative modalities such as play therapy, art therapy, and sensory activities. With some adult clients, I might blend talk therapy with mindfulness practices depending on the client’s needs.

I graduated magna cum laude from San Diego State University, where I earned my BA in psychology. Subsequently, I went on to obtain my MS in Marriage and Family Therapy with honors from the University of Southern California. Currently, I am working under the supervision of Cindy Brock, MA, LPCC.
