About me

Hello & welcome to my page. My name is Shawna Morris, I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Oklahoma since 2016. I hold a Master of Science Degree in Marriage and Family Counseling, and I have 24 years of work related experience in behavioral health and substance abuse services, with a profound commitment to mental health and well-being. I bring compassion and empathy to every counseling session, and I treat this work as a sacred privilege. As a licensed professional, I adhere to the highest ethical standards, ensuring confidentiality and respect for every individual as they embark on a path to healing and self-discovery, where compassionate guidance meets professional expertise.

I believe in creating a safe space for individuals. One that is nonjudgemental and objective, where they can explore their own unique challenges by engaging in evidence-based practices with tailored counseling approaches to meet their specific needs. This aids in fostering a collaborative and empowering therapeutic journey.

My therapeutic approach consists of different modalities and techniques with an emphasis on integrating the mind, body and soul, utilizing techniques from transpersonal psychotherapy. I also believe creativity to be a powerful component in the therapeutic healing process, and I like to combine art therapy with other reliable and evidence-based methods, including client-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, family systems therapy, emotion focused therapy, and utilizing the techniques from the dialectical behavioral therapy model, such as mindfulness and emotion regulation. I have listed below the main problematic issues I have specialized in, whereby having the most experience in these specific areas as I have worked with clients.

• Self-esteem issues related to low self-confidence and lack of self-awareness
• Codependency
• Stress & anxiety related issues
• Depression
• Adult issues related to childhood trauma
• Family conflict, issues related to interpersonal relationships
• Divorce/separation
• Grief, loss, and issues related to secondary losses and how to cope with life changes

She has been the best therapist I have had in my experience with therapists. She is a listener. She hears me.

Shawna is amazing! She listens to all my gripes and validates my feelings when I question them myself. She allows me to share what I want and is nonjudgmental in our sessions. She also provides a variety of informational pages and worksheets to help work through your current problems. I would recommend her to anyone looking to start therapy!

Every time these review prompts come up I never quite know what to say. All I can say is that my therapist, Shawna Morris, knows me better than people that have known me for 20 years. This woman has helped me learn myself in more ways than I can count And is rooting for me every day. She is an absolute gem. I am beyond grateful to have found her and have her in my life. She’s my big sister, confident, dear friend, sister in shenanigans, shoulder to cry on, caring ear that listens… She’s just so much to me. She’s been my therapist now, coming up on one year, and I can’t believe how much she has helped me recognize my situations and helped me to continue moving through them in a positive manner that is good for my mental and physical and emotional well-being. She’s the best, love her dearly.
