Greetings! I’m John Shirkey, a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). My primary service offerings are solution-focused and animal assisted therapy, always with empathy and your particular situation in mind. Wellness goals are tailored to your individual needs.

I am a graduate of Bethel University (St. Paul, MN), hold a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of North Dakota, and am licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in the State of Colorado. I have a background working in both the private and public sector having worked in schools, county social services, and as part of a large health system. I was previously the treatment director of a residential facility for adolescents struggling with mental health issues.

I believe mental health is one aspect of an individual which contributes to their overall wellness. Therapy presents an opportunity for people to make progress on their individual recovery journey. I strive to help empower others to make changes for themselves through building a strong therapeutic relationship.
