If you've been struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or any other issues, then I think you deserve a happier, more satisfying life. And, you can discover that professional insight, tools, and guidance through counseling and therapy sometimes really can be the difference that makes the difference.However, unless you take the first step to solve your problems, they will never go away. Individuals, couples/pods, etc with a desire to open their relationship or address challenges that have occurred after opening up will find an experienced professional to help you navigate both.
As a systems trained therapist I believe in the power of relationships. My therapeutic approach honors and explores key relationships in a client's life as they pertain to the problem that the client brings to therapy, and fostering a strong therapeutic alliance, integrating compassionate understanding to create a safe environment to explore client needs.
I am an experienced provider of services for individuals, couples, and families dealing with emotional, behavioral, and relational issues--alternative lifestyles (polyamory/open); infidelity; anxiety; depression; grief/loss; isolation; life-transition; and stress. Having studied various spiritual paths, my perspective is broad and deep allowing me to assist clients to access inner resources and wisdom.

C. Shawn Oak's Groups

Authentic Men

Authentic Men is associated with not acting like someone else, voicing your own truths. NOT being pressured into decisions or judgments by outside influences. It is about trusting YOUR heart, your gut instinct and following it.Being authentic is not an easy road.. It means that you will potentially have to go against the grain of what is considered 'normal", to stick your neck out for what you really stand for. "The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are." - C.G. Jung Be the man you are and stop being the man you think others want.

More about this group

Men's Divorce Recovery

This group is powerful way to support men to transform their lives. This group won't 'fix' you or your situation. It doesn't work on the basis that you are 'broken' and need fixing. Through sharing stories, experiences, and learning new tips and techniques, men can often provide each other with insights and new perspectives on their lives. This group provides you with an opportunity to share your experiences with other men and to hear what other men are experiencing, all within in a safe environment. A safe environment includes having a clear mutual respect and confidentiality.
