Description

Shanen goes above and beyond traditional talk therapy to help her clients meet their goals and achieve mental wellness. She uses bottom-up approaches in her work – focusing on the body, physical sensations and emotions before targeting one’s thoughts. 

Her goal is to help you find calm and safety in your body so that you can achieve the same in your mental health. By learning to ground and soothe you are able to intentionally attend to stress, anxiety, and trauma. 

Shanen is an evidence-based practitioner and a certified trauma integration clinician.
