About me

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.

Written on May 22, 2024 after therapy with Shaun for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and adhd

Shaun has been my therapist for over 3 years. When I started I was desperate for my family to be fixed. I could not see past my pain.
I did not know how to express myself. My feelings and thoughts were so tangled. Shaun patiently listened and asked questions until I could start verbalizing my inner struggles.
At times I just wanted her to tell me what I was thinking and feeling so I did not have to do the work!
I am grateful she pursued showing me how to identify my thoughts. I have been given the gift of my life back.
My family has not been fixed but I am healing and it feels great!
I will continue my counseling because I want to continue healing.
