Had my first session with Shawn. He uncovered some things that I have felt that have always been there. Looking forward to seeing where our journey goes.

Shawn has been a great fit for me so far. He's really professional, has a whole toolkit of really useful exercises, and is also friendly and understanding. He's been really helpful to me in working through a lot of my issues related to communication, my emotions, and my identity.

Would highly recommend Shawn to anyone, especially for a younger person like me (early 20's) as he seems to understand me and what I'm going through very well.

I have had 3 sessions so far with Shawn. I have had 6 therapists over the last 10+ years and of those only one ever made me feel so seen, heard, and not rushed as Shawn has! He is a wonderful listener and is incredibly genuine. He has already helped me tremendously with coping with trauma, anxiety and my chronic pain. I feel so lucky to have found him!

My second time giving therapy a chance and my first time actually enjoying it ! Shawn is so attentive and you can tell he cares because he prepares for our session before we start! He even checks in between sessions and that’s something I truly appreciate. If you’re looking for a sign to start therapy, this is it !

Shawn is amazing and one of the best listeners I’ve ever encountered. Unlike previous experiences, he doesn’t interrupt me and lets me get everything out before we start working on a plan. He’s given me great coping tools.
