Shirley Elrod

Co-Founder, Supervisor, Therapist


Having held various positions at the Center, Shirley is now primarily working with individuals and couples in the counseling program. She brings many years of experience and continuing education to the work she does by gently joining people in their grief process and moving at their pace through what can be a disorienting and confusing time.
Shirley knows that with care, support, and psycho-education about grief, people can find their way through all the challenging emotions and life changes bereavement brings. She feels honored to walk alongside those who are grieving, creating sacred space, gaining insight, building hope and taping into resilience as each person finds new ways to live.

I am inspired by…

…the courage that dwells in the human spirit.
