About Me

Dr. Shawn has studied the mother-daughter relationship, specializing in unearthing generational trauma. I have almost 17 years serving families and communities starting in Michigan and now in Georgia. My signature approach is to create as space like you are sitting with a friend, before the conversation gets deep as my therapeutic style is an eclectic mix of CBT, EMDR, affect management and mindfulness techniques. I create a genuine sacred time for us to explore the possibility of something new and provide healthy habits for those who want something better. Together, we will identify patterns as therapy provides an opportunity for restoration and emotional healing for this thing called “life”. Let me help you find your authentic self so you can be your best self by taking your pain points and turning them into power points.

Dr. Shawn (Fuqua) is amazing. She is everything I was looking for in a therapist/counselor and more. I know that I can speak honestly with Dr.Shawn as a woman, wife, mother, etc. without any fear of judgment. She understands the way I communicate and offers clarity, insight, and thoughtful questions that help me work toward the goals I have for myself.

Dr. Fuqua has been amazing. In the short time that I've been meeting with her (2 weeks), we have gotten to the root cause of my problems. She has done an amazing job with journal prompts and asking me the right questions.. she obviously has learned a lot about me and is piecing the puzzle together so well. I feel so lucky to have found such an amazing counselor on the first try.
