Kelly Gardiner, PhD, PMHNP, CNS, BC

Philosophy of Care

Dr. Kelly Gardiner is an ANCC Board Certified Adult Psychiatric Clinical Nurse Specialist, a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, and a Ph.D. in Public Health. Dr. Gardiner has 30 years of psychiatry experience in treating mild to severe mental illness in adults.

Suppose you have a mental health condition along with Multiple Sclerosis, a developmental disorder, sleep disorder, Parkinson's, dementia, HIV, a history of bariatric surgery, lupus, seizures, or a history of a brain injury (including stroke). In that case, she will enjoy working with you and collaborating care with your specialists and general medical provider.

If you don't have any of the above medical conditions, Dr. Gardiner would still love to work with you. Maybe it is time that you invested in yourself by getting an appointment? Dr. Gardiner works with you to decide the best plan of action to get you feeling better again. She uses the safest and least amount of medication for your condition. She will also explain your diagnosis to you and various treatment options available.

Shelby Molloseau, LMSW-C

Philosophy of Care

Shelby Molloseau is a fully Licensed Masters Social Worker in Michigan with five years experience providing intervention, support, and therapeutic services to individuals in the LGBTQIA+ community, individuals with severe and persistent mental illness, people in crisis and/or with significant trauma history, and people living with HIV. She enjoys working with individuals, couples, and families struggling with identity concerns, navigating trauma history, sex and sexuality concerns, managing depression and anxiety, and coping with life transitions - including career changes, parenthood, and grief and loss. Shelby received her Bachelors in Clinical/Community Psychology from the University of Michigan-Flint and her Masters in Social Work from Michigan State University. She has worked as a case manager and therapist for people living with HIV, provided therapy and support services to individuals who identify on the LBGTQIA+ spectrum, and worked for many years with individuals, couples, and families as a psychiatric social worker in inpatient mental health units.

With years of experience in acute, crisis settings, Shelby utilizes an ability to quickly establish a warm and open connection with clients and employs a number of techniques, focusing on what will best meet that person's individual needs. Shelby's approach is both solution focused and emotion focused, pulling on techniques that are strengths based and rooted in elements of mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). Shelby's practice is informed by the concept that therapy is a meeting between experts - the therapist brings the expertise of techniques in therapeutic practice, but the client (or clients) bring the expertise of their own experience and what will best work for them. The most effective therapy, in Shelby's opinion, focuses on meeting the client where they want to start and working together to better understand where we are, where we want to go, and how we are going to get there.

The reality of living is that while all humans experience lovely, beautiful moments - tough times are just as common (and at times can seem to far outweigh the good). Shelby welcomes clients at any stage in life, and recognizes each client may have different reasons for engaging in therapy. Whether seeking to understand themselves, their emotions, and their actions better, or trying to make sense of the world around them and the difficult paths we all must walk at times, or reaching out for support in furthering their goals and enriching their lives, clients can expect kindness, empathy, and compassion in their relationship with Shelby.
