Hello. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado. I have a Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling, and have been working on a Ph.D in Clinical Psychology. I've been in helping professions of one sort or another for 20 years helping people overcome the obstacles life throws at them. I am a great listener with a good sense of humor! I will help you define the problem that's bothering you, and help you "fine tune" the way you look at your life. My first goal is to develop a strong, trusting relationship with you, because that is the key to successful counseling.
I have helped people experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, stage of life issues, trauma, and LGBT issues. I look forward to helping you with what's bothering you.
My approach to therapy is a blend of Solutions-Focused therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and to teach relaxation, communication and coping skills. In other words, we will look at what is working for you, what is not working for you, and help you begin to identify immediate changes. We will look at how your knowledge, beliefs, and what have learned over time affect the way you behave. And finally, skills that will help you to handle frustration better will help you to problem-solve more efficiently.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Self esteem
I also have experience in Addictions, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Career, Bipolar

Shawn is a great counselor and shows a lot of experience in many subjects. He has helped me with some relationship issues and his counseling has helped me advance in this matter.
Shawn Williamson was great! He uses humor to keep the conversation light and always addresses all of my concerns.
I had a very effective time with Shawn. He got into detail of my problem and his way of approaching the conversation helped me to open my mind and share all my thoughts and viewpoints. He helped me understand my strengths and how to approach to the y problem. He is very prompt in replying to my messages.
