My name is Shawn Winton and I completed a Masters of Science in Professional Counseling at Liberty University. I have over 7 years of experience working as a psychotherapist working with teens, adults, and the elderly. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, anger issues, grief, and addiction. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion regardless of their orientation or religious beliefs. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, psychodynamic, EMDR, and rational-emotive therapy. 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!

Shawn is a great person. He does help. He really does listen. The only advice I have for any other clients is to listen. See what he has to say and put that into an action that can help you too.
