I am a social worker licensed in North Carolina with 10 years of experience working as an individual and family therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, marriage conflict, parenting problems, career challenges, mood disturbances, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm, honest, and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, trauma focused, and solution focused. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I was hesitant and not expecting much for therapy. I haven’t had great experiences with therapy but I would highly recommend Shauna. She is very caring, understanding, professional but not so professional you don’t feel comfortable. I would recommend her to others.
