Why Choose Clinical Stress Relief and Counseling Center?


Lead Clinician

Jules Yuan Shellby, MA, LPC

Growing up in Birmingham, Michigan with a large body from childhood into her 30s led to an interest in finding a way to wellness. In 1982, Jules commenced her career in healthcare as the Dietician Assistant at the Vail Valley Medical Center in Colorado, and has lived both sides of the body positivity conversation. Numerous sports injuries as a ski racer resulted in her using a wheelchair and living with severe chronic pain; now, following a range of interventions, she is once again mobile, pain-free, and well positioned to support people who struggle with related challenges.
