Shelly Bohmert, MA, LADC, LPCC

Director of Mental Health • She/Her/Hers

Shelly has worked in the behavioral health field for over 10 years. She has been fortunate to work in positions serving both mental health clients but also with mental health and substance use clients. She has experience working with adults and adolescents including residential, outpatient and inpatient settings with a specialization in working with individuals with co-occurring concerns and trauma. Having worked in different settings has allowed her to tailor her approach when working with clients to where they are and what they are needing at that time. Shelly believes in creating individualized plans for each client that focuses on their wants and needs with them being in control while she assists in guiding them.

Outside of work, Shelly enjoys being outside and traveling with her twin toddlers, spouse and their family dog.
