Announcement icon We will all get through this together! While I do prefer in-person therapy, my practice is switching to teletherapy at this time- thank you!
“We all have an unsuspected reserve of strength inside that emerges when life puts us to the test.” - Isabel Allende. Hello! For the last five years my experience has involved providing a variety of mental health services to adolescents, teenagers, adults and families. Prior to that I gained experience working with youth growing up in some of the most challenging environments imaginable. As a counselor my goal is to walk with you through the unexpected that life has put in front of you. We are made to get through challenges together and therapy can provide that much needed support. My approach is relational and attachment-based.
As a youth you may be feeling overwhelmed and highly anxious. In adulthood you might have to unexpectedly deal with a difficult loss, overcome past trauma or intense sadness. There is no reason to face challenges alone. I have experience counseling those experiencing developmental trauma, anxiety, depression, PTSD, panic attacks, ADHD, OCD and life changes.
Using an evidence-based approach to understand your story and support you through what you are working to overcome; my approach is strengths-based and includes elements of family systems, ACT, DBT, CBT and expressive therapies. I focus on a growth mindset opposed to simply reduction of symptoms. Please call or email with questions. www.shearercounseling.org
