Shawnene Weeks


About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker [LCSW] with specialized training as an Addiction Recovery Practitioner. I am also trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy; to help individuals recover from trauma.
My therapy style is person-centered. I focus on the whole person. I am experienced in working with individuals suffering from the cycle of substance abuse, trauma, and anxiety. My vision is one of inclusivity. My aim is to help people through difficult times, unexpected life-stressors, and to ultimately be an effective collaborator in their well-being.
I’m delighted in the possibility of collaborating with you in finding ways to effectively manage your current life-stressors. And in helping you reach your current goals. In being tenacious about dealing with my own life challenges, I hold close to the belief that we are all deserving of a big, full life! “Ready to talk? I’m listening.”

Shawnene is professional, attentive, and caring. Her voice and words of wisdom are a great weekly gift to myself and my mental health. She always responds within a day, two max, and is a wonderful professional for those wanting to take a mindfulness/meditation based approach.
