About Me

I empower clients to overcome personal obstacles through the use of clinically tested evidenced practices. I am a licensed professional counselor with a concentration in marriage and families. I have worked with children, families, and adults in a variety of settings and have created many outlets to help others gain enrichment. I have a masters degree in community counseling with a concentration in marriage and family therapy. I have also completed additional credits in family life coaching. I offer counseling to address depression, anxiety, independent living, relationships, and parenting.

When working with clients I consider myself like a cheerleader, cheering you on to find your way through the storm. Navigating obstacles in our lives can be very difficult at times however, I offer a fresh perspective with the insight and encouragement you need to power forward. In counseling, I use the cognitive behavioral therapy model to help you organize your thoughts and cast out negative patterns that work against you. I also teach you the importance of self-care and share tips and techniques to expand that practice. Most of all, I offer a listening ear to hear and validate your emotions and thoughts in a situation and help you build a plan to facilitate moving forward. Therapy can be fun, simple, and easy in session with me and I work with you where you stand in this moment.

Shauna has been a great support from the day I signed up for BetterHelp. I can easily comprehend and apply the tools she’s offered me, and I find her way of communicating helps keep me stay focused on the topics I need to focus on (rather than feeling judged and afraid.) Thank you Shauna and BetterHelp.
