Dr. Shantel Crosby, LCSW

About the Owner

Greetings!! I'm Dr. Crosby--owner of West Rose Therapy & Consultation, LLC, a clinical therapist, a tenured Associate Professor of Social Work, and consultant. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, and a Master's and PhD in Social Work, and am widely published in the area of equity, trauma, and trauma-informed practice. I have experience providing therapy to adults, youth, and families--often those with significant exposure to traumatic stress--and currently prioritize addressing the mental health needs of BIPOC (i.e., Black, Indigenous, and people of color) clients. While I operate in various roles, the thread that runs through them all is my passion for helping and empowering others.

For 10+ years, I have delivered workshops, trainings, and facilitated implementation and evaluation services to address trauma, trauma-informed practice, equity, and organizational culture within schools and community organizations. I have worked extensively with schools and school districts, including the largest school district in the state of Kentucky (i.e., Jefferson County Public Schools) to evaluate school climate, train staff on education equity and trauma-informed practice, and implement organizational change. I also conduct training and ongoing program evaluation as consulting faculty for both the: Center for Trauma Resilient Communities and the MONARCH Trauma Informed Education Project. 

Outside of work, my faith, family, and friends are the most important things to me! I'm a Detroit, MI native, but currently reside in Louisville, KY. I'm also a foodie who loves traveling, listening to podcasts, and getting lost in a good book! Interested in connecting? Contact me if you'd like to learn more about how West Rose can help!
