"Healing is not a single event that just happens, it is a journey with various levels of new insights and growth."

Meet Shawn

I believe that there is no place in your life that is too dark that cannot be healed. Healing is not a single event that just happens, it is a journey with various levels of new insights and growth. I love supporting people through the difficulties of life. In doing so, I love to laugh, joke, connect, be real, and down to earth.

 I have an audacious and thought provoking approach to treatment. My approach allows me to directly connect with client sin a manner that is comfortable and authentic, Through treatment, I provide clients with healthy challenges, and autonomy in guiding their own treatment. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for clients.

I have over 20 years of experience with working in the Human Services and Mental Health field. My work began with supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities, and their families. I have clinical experience across a variety of residential, inpatient and outpatient settings. I believe in taking a biopsychosocial approach to healing trauma and adverse childhood experiences.

 

I use a variety of modalities that incorporates evidence-based practices from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Motivational Interviewing, and Psycho-education. I believe in a strength based, person-centered, and integrative approach that is holistic, eclectic and guided by the individual needs of the client, and their family. I specialize in identifying and alleviating the impact of trauma, as well as improving interventions to support trauma recovery for better emotional, physical, spiritual and relational health.
