Andrea Shields Marriage & Family Therapy, LLC

Individuals, Couples & Families


I offer individual therapy for children (6+), adolescents and adults. I work with issues including but not limited to anxiety, behavioral issues, depression, parenting, school issues and self confidence building. 

I would be honored to have the opportunity to support you and/ or your family through your transformation and growth as well as the tougher times in our life and relationships. 

Families & Couples

I enjoy helping families learn the skills of cooperation, compassion and understanding to help the family unit work, communicate and grow with each other.  

I also work with couples in varying dynamics in their relationships. We work on restoring open and honest communication, breaking destructive patterns and manage the different phases of a relationship. In couples’ session we strive to give couples the skills that they can take from the session into their daily lives; to achieve a more fulfilling relationship and a deeper connection.

Why do I love cairns (and why they are around my office)?

I have always loved stacked rocks for their beauty however their meaning brings a special piece to my practice: They have been used throughout history to mark one's personal passage through an area.

In my opinion its a beautiful reminder of where we have been and where we are headed.
