About Me

Care Philosophy:
I help patients manage medical stressors and behavioral side effects of lifesaving treatments to improve quality of life.  Helping patients understand and communicate well with their doctors and have the information to make decisions for themselves are important for autonomy and mutual respect.

Biographical Statement:
Dr. Elshelman works with the Henry Ford Transplant Institute to provide rapid assessment with quick and effective treatments plans for patients facing serious illness while undergoing the transplant process. She helps her patients meet the psychiatric and substance abuse requirements so they can be listed for transplant and address any issues after transplant has occurred. She believes in working closely with her patients’ families to create support networks that help contribute to long term transplant success.

Dr. Eshelman earned her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Wayne State University in 1983. She has been a senior staff health psychologist with the Henry Ford Transplant Institute since 1985. Dr. Eshelman completed an internship in Health Psychology with Henry Ford Hospital.

Research Interests:
Dr. Eshelman is currently researching how to improve processes used to prepare patients for successful transplant and improve the quality of life after transplant.
