Therapist in Chicago, Illinois, Shelby Duran, LSW

Shelby Duran, LSW

Shelby Duran is a Licensed Social Worker in Illinois who has been practicing since 2021. She has a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Chicago’s Social Service Administration Program.

Shelby’s treatment philosophy is eclectic and holistic. She believes that not one single approach works for every person and practices from a psychodynamic lens, acknowledging that our history directly impacts our present and future. Shelby also believes in the importance of our mind-body connection and the way that mental health impacts our physical health.

In her spare time, Shelby enjoys spending time with her support system including her cat, Bella, embroidery, cross stitch, long walks through the city in the summer and using her stationary bicycle during the winter.
