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!
