I am Certified in EMDR. EMDR is a trauma therapy which research has shown to be highly effective. The most important characteristics of a good therapist are intelligent listening, the ability to use multiple skills according to the needs of the client, and most importantly, compassion. I have worked with depression and anxiety (among other issues) for 31 years. It is very difficult to seek help at a time when one is most vulnerable and I am especially sensitive to this with my clients.

For over 25 years, I have been working directly with persons with mood disorders, substance use, trauma and managing life's stressors. I practice a holistic approach which is strength based, solution focused and psychodynamic. I specialize in mindfulness based practices, cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy. Beginning with our own awareness can allow us to slow down, notice, and change unhealthy patterns. These strategies are essential in transitioning from feeling unsettled towards being able to ride waves of challenge with ease and intention.

Your story is your own. My job as a therapist is to create a space of understanding and acceptance where your story can be told, and personal examination and growth can feel safe and attainable. I believe that as an individual's understanding of their own thoughts and emotions increases so, too, does their ability to resolve conflict, heal from trauma, repair relationships, communicate effectively, and break self-destructive patterns. My collaborative role in this process is to provide active listening, empathetic reflection and observation, and attuned interventions specific to your unique needs and strengths.

Hi, my name is Shane, and I am the owner of Anchored Soul Counseling. We work best with patients who recognize that they are not living the life they want or deserve. They are willing to begin to open up and attempt to be vulnerable, even if it is slowly. Our approach to treatment is warm, relaxed and person-centered. We are very patient and work to meet patients where they are at in their journey, not where they, "should be". We strive to treat my patients with compassion and acceptance. We value each person as an expert in their own life. Each person and their story is different and requires specific, rounded care.

I view therapy as an opportunity to use one own's strengths and values as a way to make sense of conflictual situations, whether interpersonal or intrapersonal, and how those characteristics are seen in the world. Ideally, therapy with me, will involve individuals who are looking to identify, explore, and create goals in a supportive and therapeutic environment. Therapy is meant to help you become your own "checkpoint" person. With the skills and knowledge you develop and practice in our sessions, it can help guide your decisions when faced with unfamiliar or familiar situations that question your values.
