About me

I have worked in the human service industry for over 10 years. I have experience working in a nursing home setting, with the residents, as a social worker. I worked in a community mental health setting while finishing my master’s degree. This provided me with a wealth of experience in dealing with child, adolescent, and adult mental health problems. I enjoy working with clients of all ages and genders. I feel that my strength lies in helping people with depression and anxiety, along with addressing issues with self-esteem, stress management, and ADHD. Currently, I am working as a special education counselor and raising my three daughters with my husband. My approach to therapy is a person- centered cognitive behavioral approach. I believe that clients are their own experts, but at times, we struggle in knowing what steps to take for our own well being. I know that teens face so many complex challenges, with relationships, school, pressure of social media, and ever increasing expectations. I want to help your teen find positive ways to cope that will help them feel more confident.

Shawna’s very kind, listens well, and is very patient and helpful. I love that she shares similar beliefs as me and prays over us before every session.
