OCD therapist Shayla Humbles Irby, Licensed Therapist, MA, LMHC, Licensed OCD Therapist

Shayla Humbles Irby


Licensed Therapist, MA, LMHC


I meet my members where they are. I support my members' emotional, physical and social well-being. Outside of work, I spend free time with my family, creating memories. I became a mother later in life, and that was the most important promotion I’ve ever received; I’m honored to have the opportunity to raise a tiny human into someone remarkable and absolutely love it.

Therapy is a form of treatment that takes time, but you will progress if you work hard and take ownership of your treatment.

Get to know Shayla Humbles Irby

I enjoy helping people. It's humbling to choose a career that decreases suffering and improves quality of life. Being able to celebrate those moments when I see hope in the lives of others gives me a sense of fulfillment.

It’s a privilege to help my community understand their symptoms and be able to support them through their hard work of reaching goals in their treatment. Life is beautiful and getting the opportunity to help someone get to the “good part” of their life is why I chose to specialize in OCD.

I have more than 10 years of experience in trauma, self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. My training includes motivational interviewing techniques and trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, an evidence-based treatment addressing multiple types of trauma.

Therapy is a form of treatment that takes time, but you will progress if you work hard and take ownership of your treatment. “A journey of one thousand miles begins with the first step.”

Know that I'm here to provide you with a safe, non-judgmental platform for treatment. I won't pretend to know how it feels in your struggle, but I will ask you to help me understand.
