Shay Selden, PsyD, MEd
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
As a queer, Mixed Black, non-binary human, I recognized early on in life that not everyone was going to “get it”. As someone that has used therapy throughout life myself, I’m also very aware of how hard it can be to find a therapist you feel affirmed by, let alone who might actually share some of your own identities. As a therapist, I highly value the relationship, and strive to see, understand, and affirm the many pieces of what makes you uniquely you, as well as the pieces that connect you to others. While it’s not always easy to be fully yourself in the world, I enjoy creating space for people to feel safe enough to do that.
I have specialized training in working with complex trauma, substance use, the LGBTQ+ community, and multicultural issues. I am also currently accruing hours for AASECT certification as a clinical sex therapist.
Some other experiences I commonly work with: mood and anxiety concerns, neurodivergence, navigating polyamory
I earned a doctorate in clinical psychology as well as a master’s in human sexuality from Widener University in 2017.
I am licensed in PA (PS018572), and authorized through PsyPact to practice telepsychology in the following states: Delaware, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and North Carolina
