About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in California, specializing in individual and group therapy. I have over 20 years of experience providing services to adults and adolescents including case management, individual and group therapy. I work with clients using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and other modalities to help them learn how to recognize and change unhealthy or painful patterns in their lives.

I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and career challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. The work is not always easy or comfortable but it is rewarding and it has the power to bring lasting positive change to our lives. I hope to be able to bring what I've learned to my work with clients. Not as an expert or someone with all the answers but as a coach or guide. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Shaye Brewer. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Written by F.R. on Feb 11, 2022 after therapy with Shaye for 1 month on issues concerning self esteem

Shaye was extremely easy to talk to and helped me make some conclusions about some stress I was having.

Written by T.E. on Jan 28, 2022 after therapy with Shaye for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and family conflicts

Shaye is great. I’m very happy

Written by S.U. on Jan 16, 2022 after therapy with Shaye for 3 weeks on issues concerning trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Shaye Brewer, I just started writing and I’m smiling already.
Shaye is wise, has many good ideas for me to think about, in my weekly homework.
Her words stay with me throughout the week and I feel grateful knowing we will visit soon.

Written by B.O. on Jan 13, 2022 after therapy with Shaye for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, parenting issues, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Just who I needed. Very kind, good listener, but offers ideas or comments when appropriate. A very safe place to vent my current issues.

As a full time student, finding a therapist that is willing to make time is extremely important to me. Shaye does an amazing job with communication and finding time for me. In addition, she takes time to make me feel heard and supported. Talking to her is easy and she does an amazing job at making me feel comfortable, especially when it comes to uncomfortable topics/situations. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking help!

Written by A.N. on Jan 04, 2022 after therapy with Shaye for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and family conflicts

Shaye is a great listener, and it is obvious from her quick understanding and wise advice that she loves what she does and has a lot of experience. She understood my needs right away, and provided some really insightful advice to an issue I'd been struggling with for years; she really helped me to see it in a new way, so that I was able to get "unstuck" and start moving forward again.
