Hi there! My name is Shely Basnet (pronounced: sae-lee bus-net). I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Addiction Counselor.

 I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I then pursued a Master of Social Work with an emphasis on Interpersonal Trauma from the University of Denver.

I have been in this field for over 10 years, 8 of which were at local non-profits and a hospital serving individuals experiencing chronic trauma, persistent and severe mental illnesses, and substance use disorders.

I immigrated to the US in my late childhood, and I currently provide therapy in English and Nepali. My lived experiences as a person, who has survived different forms of displacement and learned to stabilize and reclaim my hopes, shape my perspectives and my work as a therapist. Witnessing healing, resilience, and human potential in the most unrelenting of situations and growing up on oral history, stories, and teachings by my family further shape me as a person and a therapist. My work is deeply influenced by social justice – a cornerstone in the field of social work.
