About Selina M. Engle, LMSW

Selina M. Engle

My education consists of a master's degree in Social Work from Southern California University. I have been a licensed Master's Level Social Worker (LMSW) in the State of Michigan since 2017 and was a Limited Licensed Master's Level Social Worker (LLMSW) for two years before this. Additionally, I hold a master's degree in Business Administration (MBA) and an undergraduate degree in public relations. Most of my career has included working in a community mental health setting in Central Michigan as a home-based and outpatient therapist.

My career has included working with individuals of all different ages and mental health disorders. I have had the opportunity to be trained in several different therapy modalities. I have training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Trauma Focused - Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI). All these trainings have allowed me to develop a large therapeutic toolbox in which I can draw many resources and therapeutic tools from.

My passion truly lies in working with individuals to help them discover and then achieve their best life. Although I work with all different ages and all different mental health disorders my specialties include, individuals with personality disorders and/or those who have experienced a traumatic event/s in their life. I strive to provide a safe environment for all those that I work with and look forward to working with you.

"I love working somewhere where I am valued as a person and for my strengths. I love working with likeminded people that work to see the company grow and that also want each other to grow. Dr. Agnew help fosters the dreams of the people that work at AFBHS. The compassionate culture is something that drew me in."

-Danie Duron, MA, LPC, Lakeshore Clinical Director

"I love the balance of owning my own private practice, with the benefits of also being part of a collaborative team. We get to socialize, learn from, and brainstorm with a team of therapists who each bring something special to the table. Since this is an established practice, the details of billing, paperwork and finding referral sources are things I don’t need to worry about. Our support staff is wonderful. This is a black-owned, racially diverse therapy practice that meets the needs of our diverse clientele, which is immensely important in a diverse world. I love that AFBHS is an antiracist private practice. Lastly, this is a practice where we are invested in seeing each therapist grow a sustainable practice. In our meetings, we talk about what makes this work sustainable, we check in with one another, and we support one another. I have worked in a number of other practices over my career and have found that this is one of the most emotionally healthy places I have ever worked. I love it here. I think you might too." -Eric Nykamp, LMSW
