Psychotherapy is a super supportive healing method that is ideal for souls ready to go deep within their thoughts, feelings, as well as past and present experiences for the purpose of gaining insight and skills to embrace the joy, love, peace, happiness, harmony and wellness of exceptional living. Psychotherapy can cultivate profound change for individuals, couples and families, too! To get started, contact Shawna Marie to schedule a free initial consultation. This is a great opportunity to ask questions, express your concerns and decide if working with Shawna for individual, couple and/or family psychotherapy is the next step.
If you decide to explore individual psychotherapy with Shawna Marie, your first session will consist of a comprehensive assessment of all areas of your life. Within 1 hour, Shawna Marie will ask a series of questions that will let her get to know you, understand your inspirations for seeking support, and assess if there is a mental health and/or substance use diagnosis that best describes your experiences and symptoms. She will provide clear easy-to-understand information about her initial impressions as a result of the assessment as well as a recommended plan for your care. If there is no diagnosis, rationale for this determination will be provided along with recommendations for next steps.
After your initial assessment, you will receive individualized supportive psychotherapy to:
(1) Address specific challenges and experiences;
(2) Face and overcome fears and anxiety;
(3) Address concerning behavior patterns;
(4) Alleviate depression, grief and stress;
(5) Improve your self-esteem and confidence;
(6) Heal through a divorce, breakup, recent loss and/or trauma(s);
(7) Understand the full range of your emotions, thoughts, relationships and circumstances;
(8) Develop insight, situational awareness, self-regulation, coping and social skills;
(9) Set and achieve life, career and relationship goals; and
(10) Develop a lifestyle rooted in self-care, self-awareness, spiritual understanding and wellness.
If you are seeking support to strengthen your relationship with your partner and overcome one or more life events that has proven challenging for both of you, couples counseling is worth considering. Through couples counseling you and your partner can assess the strengths and challenges in your relationship, set goals, and work to achieve those goals. Sessions will support both of you to get clarity in your relationship, strengthen communication skills, address issues and concerns, and allow your relationship to evolve into its best form, be it that you choose to remain a couple or to separate/divorce.
When any single family member is growing through challenges, it impacts the entire family. There are also situations within families which require additional support in order to understand and overcome what’s preventing the family from truly thriving as a unit. Consider family therapy when the full family unit is willing to explore strengths and challenges within the family, and work together to both heal and solve family challenges. Together you will set and achieve goals as a family.
