Shawna Crabill

(MA, LMFT)

About Me

I absolutely love what I do! I believe that my life experience, along with my education and training, has made me a better and more empathetic therapist. I strive to create a non-judgmental, supportive environment while also encouraging my clients to create their best selves. I feel honored that my clients trust me enough to share with me their difficulties and struggles.

I will work hard to help you create a more balanced and fulfilling life, and to achieve your goals!
I have gone through a difficult divorce myself, so I can honestly say that I understand what you are going through if you are struggling in your life. I am now happily remarried with two beautiful children. I can say with all truth that things can always get better! I have been there and lived through it, and I have seen change and growth in my clients. I have seen people come from their darkest times into a place of optimism and hope for their future.

I use a variety of techniques to help my clients (Humanistic-Existential, Cognitive Behavioral, Mindfulness), but I will work with you to find out what you need and what works best for you. I will work with you at whatever pace you feel comfortable with.

My undergrad was at the University of Alabama, and I received my Masters in Psychology from Phillips Graduate Institute. My emphasis was Marriage & Family Therapy and my clinical concentration was Child Therapy in a School Setting.

Written by L.A on Apr 24, 2017 after counseling with Shawna for 1 year and 7 months on issues concerning relationship

Compassionate, insightful and well trained to get to the point and solutions without telling me what to do

Written by L.E on Aug 30, 2016 after counseling with Shawna for 2 days on issues concerning self esteem

Shawna has been so incredibly helpful to me over these past months. She is always prompt to respond to me, and always responds in a compassionate and non-judgmental way. That being said, she always answers me honestly and objectively, and doesn't simply tell me what I want to hear. Out of all the counselors I've had before, Shawna has helped me the most. I can't thank her enough!

Written by A.P on Jun 27, 2016 after counseling with Shawna for 8 months

I was hesitant to try this. But luckily, I was blessed with an amazing counselor. She takes the time to listen and really get to the root of every single subject we talk about. I couldn't have asked for a better person.

Shawna Crabill has been very helpfull in my battle with depression. She is kind and nonjudgmental, but also knows when to call me out and expect better of me. She has encouraged me to hold myself to higher standards, and is always understanding and sympathetic to my fears and problems. She helped me through a critical point in my life.

Shawna is very prompt with her replies and she continuously checks in on me even when I'm not logged on. When I ask her to talk to me in a way that helps me not feel so awkward to keep talking, she easily adapts.

Shawna is very quick to respond and always has something uplifting to say. She always makes me feel validated and cared for. It's tremendously comforting to know someone's there and has your back.

I've only been on this site for a couple weeks and already Shawna has helped me so much. She responds super quickly, even when you think it's super late and she isn't online she still manages to respond within a few hours. And this is true for anytime of day. She's given me a lot of really good advice and is really understanding when I have a hard time following that advice. I have tried several therapists through my insurance and they couldn't help me the way Shawna has. 10/10 would recommend

Shawna is great. She is very helpful in working out any problems or issues you might be having. She is a great listener (even though it is via text/email), and gives great feedback and prompts. She is very quick to respond, and checks in if you haven't spoken in a while. I am confident that I can take any problem or issue to Shawna and get the help that I need.

I want to thank Shawna for her direct and sincere insights over these past several weeks. I enjoyed working with her, and feel comfortable in being able to tackle life, thanks to her guidance.

Written by A.L on Feb 25, 2016 after counseling with Shawna for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

Shawna is really supportive and understanding. She checks in with you on a regular basis if you haven't messaged her and she responds quickly and often. It can be hard to have a connection with a counselor over text messages sometimes but she does a good job showing she cares.

Shawna is a great counselor who has provided me much needed support as I suffer from severe depression anxiety. She is such a positive person who is also realistic and encouraging. She is great at checking in and following up which I really value because it shows how much she cares about her clients. I high recommend her!

Written by J.O on Nov 20, 2015 after counseling with Shawna for 3 weeks

I had never spoken to a therapist before and didn't know what to expect. I felt apprehensive about sharing intimate details about my life. Shawna immediately made me feel very comfortable. She is a professional on every level and made me feel like she was really there to help. She has been very responsive and active in helping me work towards my goals. I feel a sense of relief knowing that I have someone like Shawna to turn to when I need judgement-free guidance. Thank you!
