I am a licensed professional counselor in the State of Texas. I have over 15 years of experience working with at-risk youth and their families who have experienced trauma. I have a passion for helping individuals who have experienced trauma in their lives and helping them find peace and healing from the past.
For the past two years, I have worked specifically with victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, domestic violence, and other traumatic events. Currently, I am pursuing my Doctorate in Traumatology to help me better understand the impact trauma has on all ages. I utilize many CBT based therapy models such as Cognitive Processing Therapy and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The CBT models work well with clients who experience depression, anxiety, anger issues, substance abuse, and behavior problems.

Shawn is absolutely amazing! I've only had a couple of sessions with her so far, but they have helped me SO much! I'm so happy I was paired with her!
She has for sure opened my eye on a lot of things already and its only been a little over two weeks with betterhelp.
After taking a few months of therapy with Shawn, I had to come back because I was going through issues again. Shawn is amazing and will do whatever she can to make sure you get out of therapy (that being said in a good way). I highly recommend her so much.
Shawn's expertise and compassion has helped give me a new outlook on life. Due to her techniques and guidance I no longer feel like I live in a prison in my own mind.
I love this woman. She is the best therapist I’ve ever had!!! I don’t think I’ll ever go back to traditional therapy because her flexibility and hours fits my lifestyle way better. She has provided such good, structured counseling. She’s not just a “well how do you feeeeelll about that??” Type therapist, she directs your conversation to meaningful topics based on what you have expressed interest in working on, she even often assigns homework and things to work on or journal about between sessions. I’m very pleased with the quality of service she provides me. She is an absolute joy and I couldn’t do life without her and the skills she teaches me!!
Shawn is the absolute best! She has helped me so much. I don’t know where I would be now without her.
Shawn is very helpful, responsive and gives me actual skills to apply, which I greatly appreciate.
I felt heard and understood, which I needed a lot. She shared a lot of useful content that addressed my concerns and touched my spirituality (which is very important). She is relatable, kind, and a great listener. She is absolutely amazing, and I highly recommend her.
Shawn helped me when I was at my last limit. She’s a really good person and a really good and efficient therapist, her method have been the best for me.
Shawn is really thoughtful and mindful. She listens to what I say and how I’m feeling but also provides a deeper insights on what I can do and with extra knowledge on things I don’t fully understand. I very much appreciate her and am thankful I started this process I know it’s already helping me.
Shawn is amazing. She’s been an amazing help and really cares. She keeps in touch with me even when I forget to check in and is a wealth of knowledge and strategies. 10/10
I had a very pleasant experience with Shawn - I was very hesitant to get counseling, but I was quickly convinced that it was the right choice. I feel I am making real progress.
It is still early but so far so good. She asked very good questions. I enjoy taking the time to think about the answers and to write. It is therapeutic to think about the questions and write. Writing is better than a conversation because I get to make sure I say everything I want to say. She has been very timely in her response and asking great questions.
Shawn has been an amazing resource for me. We have discussed anxiety, past trauma and even a bit about career. I feel so confident in her expertise and in her kindness.
The phone calls are great she is very calm, intuitive and friendly. The homework is helping me to really evaluate what has occurred in my life that has me in the place I am today.
Shawn has been helping me work through so much anxiety the past couple of months. Getting counseling has been the best choice I've made for my health in a long time. She is kind, compassionate, and intelligent. I couldn't have asked for anyone better.
She is great at understanding what you are communicating to her about. Some times it's almost like she's going to know what you say before you say it. She is very tuned in to the issues. Easy to talk to.
Shawn is compassionate and caring and demonstrate a great understanding of my self situation. Material offered has been right on.
Shawn is awesome. I have total faith in her and I am very comfortable with her. She is always making me think.
Shawn is a phenomenal woman I have had the pleasure of talking with for my therapy time with BetterHelp.
Shawn really takes the time to listen to my concerns and has given me great strategies to help with my anxiety. She’s helped to open my eyes and mind in a way that I wasn’t aware so that I am able to prevent unnecessary problems for myself. Her advice is not cookie cutter and she is easy to talk to. I feel like my anxiety levels are definitely improving and I really appreciate the strategies Shawn has provided to me. I highly recommend Shawn!
Shawn is extremely friendly and professional during our sessions!
Shawn has been of great help to me during a major transition period. I feel like she is always there for me, and she really thinks about my concerns. She helps me work through my thoughts and feelings so that I can choose the best step forward.
I love Shawn so much. She has helped me pinpoint and confront issues that I didn’t even know I had, and had done so sweetly and gently. She is knowledgeable, competent and insightful. I felt quickly at ease discussing my issues with her. She is quick to respond when I’m having a crisis, and I always look forward to talking with her.
I have been working with Shawn for a couple of months. She is very patient, kind, and understanding. One thing that makes her services stand out to me is her availability to her clients. During specific times of internal crisis, I was able to communicate with Shawn until I calmed down and she gave me the necessary tools to cope with my problems. She also gave me many helpful worksheets that helped me work through some of my thinking patterns and find ways to improve. Highly recommend!!
She is a wonderful and patient person. She addressed my needs in a timely manner and I felt very comfortable speaking with her about my issues.
She listened to my problems and provided worksheets and articles to help me understand what was actually causing them and how to cope with them. She freed me and helped me find mental clarity. I would recommend!
