Hi I’m Shawn


Are you motivated for therapy? Someone who is functioning highly in work and career but you are having trouble in your relationships? Are you looking for personal development, communication skills, and growing in emotional Intelligence?

Perhaps you are an individual who identifies as an adult child raised in a family where there was multigenerational dysfunction, or an alcoholic/addict parent/sibling or you get into relationships with difficult people as an adult and you want to break old patterns, save a relationship and/or develop new coping skills to make better healthier choices.

I work with individuals who want to learn how to navigate conflict, for healthier sustainable relationships.

I am advanced trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy, and utilize an IFS based approach, to guide you in making contact with the many parts that make up the whole of who you are.

Together we will practice tools you will learn in session and develop more coping strategies, over the period of treatment.

You will learn how to differentiate thoughts from feelings, and the ability to self regulate and communicate during activation/conflict/upset.

Let’s start by meeting in a safe space for you to be exactly who you are and met with non judgement and curiosity, and see if we are a good fit.

You can schedule an appointment with me directly on my website at
