*Closed to new referrals* “We all have an unsuspected reserve of strength inside that emerges when life puts us to the test.” - Isabel Allende. Therapy is a tool to help you cope, grow and heal. Much of life's pain is caused by traumas that we go through. Times that you were hurt or forced to cope with something that felt overwhelming and highly threatening. Transition periods in life are particularly difficult. Through therapy we will work to navigate emotions yet more importantly the work will be on healing and gaining strength.
In the last seven years my experience has involved providing mental health services to adolescents, teenagers, young adults and families. As a therapist my goal is to walk with you through whatever you are having difficulty with. I have experience treating trauma, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, behavioral issues, 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
