Shelby L. Riley, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Chester Springs, PA


Healthy, thriving marriages take work, and we aren’t given a manual to follow when we say, “I do.” There are times in every couple’s life together when help from a professional can make all the difference.
Couple’s therapy at SR&A starts with an effort to get to know you and your concerns. We then work together to create a clear picture of a marriage that feels respectful and exciting to you both and form a plan for therapy that fits for you.
Kids change the landscape of a marriage, and I’m trained to consider not only children, but also the larger family system: parents, siblings, friends, etc., and how they impact your marriage.
Whether it’s:
  • Stress
  • Excessive alcohol use
  • An Affair
  • Work/Family Imbalance
  • Parenting Differences
  • In-Law Issues
  • Lack of Intimacy/Sex
  • Constant Conflict
  • Life Change like a Move, New Baby, or New Job
  • Mental Health Issues like Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, etc.
  • Political Differences
  • Or Other Issues….
I can help.
I serve adults, teens, and children and offer individual, couple, family, sand tray and play therapy, so if other parts of your family need help, I’m able to accommodate their needs, too.
I am an experienced, licensed clinician who specializes in couple’s therapy. I am Gottman Level I trained. I’ve had the privilege of working with hundreds of couples, helping them to create safer, kinder, more intimate, more playful and more satisfying marriages. I’m looking forward to helping you, too.
I offer a free 20-minute consultation so we can meet in person and make sure you have the right fit.
