I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Nebraska with 23 years of experience. I have done both office-based and home-based counseling and have worked with a range of concerns--addressing everything from codependency to anxiety to depression to Al-Anon issues.
My counseling style is based on person-centered therapy. I believe that you are the expert on your own life and your perspective is critical to resolving your issues. Showing respect, empathy, and compassion to all people is of the upmost importance to me. However, my main theoretical approach stems from the Cognitive Behavioral therapeutic school of thought.
It takes courage to seek assistance help you are struggling with life's stressors. I look forward to meeting you and hopefully providing the support you need to resolve any matters that are causing you distress or emotional pain.

Shaun is amazing. She listens with intent and works to make sure she understand you. She is amazing at finding what works best for you and what you're facing. I have seen such a change in myself in such a short amount of time with the help and guidance Shaun has provided me

Shaun has helped me through so much while I’ve been trying to come back to myself as a whole being. I’m able to fully open up my self to her which I’ve had a hard time doing in the past.

Shaun is the absolute best! She has helped me so much in the last year, and I don’t know how I would have survived without her.

Shaun is great! I look forward to our weekly sessions and she has really helped me to deal with my anxiety

The best way to do something like this accurately would have to take a little more time. 2 dates doesn't make a relationship perfect.

Shaun was such a great match for me. She made me feel safe and supported in a time where I felt like I was going crazy. She helped me more than I could have imagined!

Thought the first few sessions Dr. Cunningham has been absolutely amazing. Really helping make progress in the right direction, for the first time doing this I’m happy I was paired with such an amazing conselor

Shaun has been the best therapist that I have ever worked with. She actively listens and and brings up valid points while still allowing you to be in control of the content of the session. Shaun is also kind hearted with a sense of humor that puts you at ease. You will definitely benefit from working with Shaun!
Written on Jan 10, 2021 after therapy with Shaun for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, and self esteem
I met with Shaun for about 2 months. She was a good listener and sounding board for me during a very difficult time. I appreciated her ability to name some of my behaviors as codependent or unhealthy. She also always created room for me to come to my own conclusion as to how to solve my problems. I tended to do most of the talking, but Shaun's created a safe space and provided valuable input.

Shaun has been a great counselor so far, she is very understanding and thoughtful about the discussion, and provides helpful feedback and insights. We’ve only had a handful of sessions, and I’ve already been able to make small changes in my life and unload some of the stress through our sessions. Looking forward to continuing to work together.

Very grateful for my time with Shaun! Not only did I feel heard and understood, but she provided me with actionable steps and goals to help me move in the right direction. I left our sessions feeling lighter, more in control (which is saying a lot during this crazy time with so much out of our control), and generally, well, better! I also really appreciate her patience and flexibility, she never minded if I needed to step away to tend to my toddler or switch tech modes due to lost connection. I would love to work with her again in the future and highly recommend her.

Since we first started talking it has been an unfolding helpful experience. I have seen things differently and practiced them in my daily life. I attribute this to my counselor, who made it very easy to open up and learn the things about myself I wasnt seeing. Shes down to earth and open minded. I enjoy my weekly sessions and look forward to the next.

I've been speaking with Shaun at least once a week for the past few months. When I first came to her, my life had gone through a lot of changes and I had a lot to work though. I didn't really have a positive self image and I wasn't comfortable standing on my own in social situations. Shaun's helped me to have a better sense of self worth. I'm more comfortable around people. I also feel like I'm better able to advocate for myself at work. I'm also much less depressed and generally things feel more positive. I'm not sure I'm quite though this yet, but Shaun's professionalism, kindness, and patience has been really helpful.
