Who We Are

Shelby Mailho, Psy.D

Clinical Psychologist


I am a cisgender queer woman who was born in Lowell, Massachusetts and spent most of my life in Florida. I have always enjoyed connecting with and helping others and discovered a love for psychology at a young age. I received my Doctorate of Psychology from the Florida School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University in Tampa, Florida in 2016.

At Andersonville Psychology and Chicago Mindful Psychotherapy, I conduct comprehensive psychological assessments and specialize in helping those who are neurodivergent, queer, and gender diverse. I’ve sought out specific training and guidance from those who have lived experience, particularly those who might not fit the researched cisgender white male profile that the DSM-5 criteria of diagnoses are based off of. I provide assessments to clarify diagnoses (i.e., autism, ADHD, mood and anxiety, PTSD, etc.), provide treatment recommendations, and suggest accommodations for work or school, as needed.

Clinical Interests/Specialties/Experience:

  • Extensive work and training with gender & sexual diversity (LGB* and TGNC folks)
  • Neurodivergent affirming
  • Use of a feminist approach that acknowledges the past and current impacts of society and culture, including experiences of oppression and intersectionality

Degrees, Certifications, & Memberships:

  • Doctorate of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology, July 2016
  • Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation, 2017
  • The Gender ASSET training, 2020
  • Gender Infinity Conference, 2020 and 2022

I am in network with Bluecross Blueshield PPO, BCBS Blue Choice PPO, Aetna PPO, and Cigna PPO.
