Shelley Chambers is a Psychotherapist/Licensed Clinical Social Worker whose practice includes providing counseling to adults, children, couples, and families.  In 2011 she was introduced to the collaborative law process and was thrilled to become a part of this new and healthier way for families to survive divorce.   Having provided therapy to dozens of children who were negatively impacted by high conflict divorces, and having served as an expert witness in many such cases, she has witnessed the damage high conflict divorce can have on families.  In collaborative divorce, the focus is on the well-being of the children and developing a productive plan for ongoing parenting efforts post divorce, which are outcomes typically not prioritized in high conflict divorces that end in court.  Coaching parents and serving as a child specialist are quickly becoming Ms. Chambers’ preferred ways to assist families in establishing healthy patterns of interacting during a divorce,  and, hopefully, preventing children from developing mental health problems as a result of contentious divorces.

Ms. Chambers earned an Associate of Arts degree from Peace College, a Bachelor of Arts degree from North Carolina State University, and a Master in Social Work from East Carolina University.  She has advanced training in evidence based treatment, as well as being trained in the collaborative model. Ms. Chambers has enjoyed providing therapy in Wilmington, North Carolina, since 1996.  Ms. Chambers is well regarded for her gift in connecting, empathizing, and helping individuals feel understood.
