Bruce B. Shelton, LCSW, CSAC

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has spent the past four decades 

with the simple goal of seeking to help others in need. This work has been 

highly professionally rewarding to me and more importantly, hopefully helpful 

to those many individuals with whom it has been my honor to work.

If you are struggling with the challenges of life, I offer my assistance to you. Specifically, I can help in the following areas:

Addictions/Substance Abuse

Couples Counseling

Anxiety Management

Anger Management

Depressive Disorder

Bipolar Disorder

Male Adolescent Counseling

Family Therapy

Trauma & Stressor Related Disorders

Psychotic Disorders

I have had extensive training and experience in the practice of 

Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). In the therapeutic relationship, I place 

great value upon authenticity, compassion, and non-judgment.

Completion of my outpatient substance abuse treatment program meets all requirements set forth by the Virginia Beach Court system, the Probation and Parole Office, the Community Corrections Program, the Juvenile Court Service Unit 

and the Chesapeake Bay ASAP.
