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.

Summary

We specialize in trauma, relationship, and sex therapy.

We work extensively with survivors of sexual and criminal violence and those who have experienced emotional and physical abuse. We work with issues such as PTSD/CPTSD, anxiety, depression, addiction, self-harm and sexual dysfunctions.

We offer individual, couple, and family therapy and provide affirming support to LGBTQ2A+ and neurodivergent folks.

We use evidence-based approaches - the ones that research shows work for the difficulties that you're experiencing and are committed to staying current through training.
