About Joelle Shipp, LCMHC

Ms. Shipp knows that different seasons of life bring different challenges. She became a mindcare provider in order to support people through those challenges, recognizing that it is helpful to have support during these seasons. Joelle works with people to identify issues, process harmful thought patterns and develop healthy skills in order to gain freedom and build confidence. As a provider Ms. Shipp prioritizes creating a safe, validating and encouraging space for patients. As a woman of color, she hopes that her identity encourages individuals who historically may not seek mental health services to take a leap of faith toward improving their mental health. She knows it is so important that everyone is able to access mental health care so that they can be their best versions of themselves and she deeply loves being able to watch people build up the courage to truly care for themselves.

She is the best. For a person struggling (or not) her ability to be there, listen, and contribute is unmatched. I had major questions/concerns about a friendship and Joelle has not only helped me work it out on my and draw my own conclusions but also supported what conclusion I came to, by raising any concerns I didn t think of. Joelle is by far the best. My mental health is so much better just knowing she is there. She is a gift and should be cherished. I m lucky to have been matched with her and wouldn t change a thing. She works wonders. I m more stable knowing she is there for our meets. Couldn t be more pleased.
