Shawnean has been such a game changer for me. She is so responsive and kind and has helped me see things in a different light in ways that have been very helpful to me. She’s never judgmental and even when challenging my current way of thinking, it’s done in a kind way that never makes me feel bad or defensive. I really value Shawnean so much and am so grateful for the tools I carry with me now that I never had before.

I can't imagine therapy without Shawnean! I am so incredibly grateful to have found her. In our short time together, she has helped me get back into caring for myself, work through some difficult spousal issues as well as take away better tools for confrontations, my reactions, setting boundaries, identifying and communicating my wants/needs, owning my own choices . . . . . the list goes on and on! All amazing tools I will always be able take with me and apply to multiple areas of my life. She's caring, she's kind, she's genuine, she hears me. I can't imagine there being another therapist out there as great as she is. From the bottom of my heart, thank you :)
