About Me

Struggling to keep your hope? Life challenges weighing? or maybe you're feeling lost, not sure of your purpose or trying to figure out who you are after divorce, breakup or even career change. What's holding you back? Hoping to "rediscover redefine and Replant" (3 R's) If so, then we should talk. .
My name is Shawnda Dewberry, LMSW. For the past 7 years as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I have worked with a broad range of backgrounds to adults and the geriatric population. I graduated from Wayne State University, Detroit MI and ever since have had a passion for helping others "live their best life". In counseling, my goal is to partner with you, build you up, give you tools to be "the best you" everyday.
If you are struggling with depression, stress, anxiety, relationship conflicts, life transitions, low self-esteem and self confidence or maybe you are looking to improve your emotional health or develop healthy lifestyle goals, you really don't have to journey alone.
I am a great listener, easy to talk to and have a variety of skills and techniques that would be of great help. My focus is a strength-based approach to therapy, in addition to a Psycho-dynamic, Cognitive and Behavioral therapy, with eclectic theoretical orientations.

Exactly what I need in a therapist! Listens but also helps me to navigate through my issues in a proactive way! Helps to give my perspective and encourages me to break negative thoughts and habits!

I’ve been working with Shawnda for a few months now and she’s fantastic. Very knowledgeable and caring. She really listens and cares about her clients. I’d recommend her to anyone as I feel she is addressing some issues I never knew existed for me.

Shawnda has been wonderful to work with. She is the first counselor I’ve found that truly listens to and understands my needs. We’ve only been working together for a short time, and I already have felt much more at ease from the first conversation we had. I’m confident in her expertise and recommend her as a counselor.

Shawnda is very understanding and makes you feel like she actually cares about you. She gives great advice and is committed to helping those that she has the chance to help. I am a shy person and she does a great job of making me feel comfortable and allowing me to be open and honest with her.
