If you’re looking to change patterns that aren’t working for you, you’ve come to the right place. I’m highly motivated to help my clients navigate their challenges and take charge of their lives. If you’re looking for a therapist who just nods and says “mmhmm”, I’m not the therapist for you. I want to help you work through the problem as quickly as possible.
The way I practice depends entirely on what you need from me. Everyone struggles in different ways and thus, my approach to therapy is flexible. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship conflict, or you just want to function more optimally in your life, I can help.
I believe every person possesses the knowledge and the power to take charge their own lives. Sometimes, you may get stuck and need a little help; this does not mean you're broken. I can help you get unstuck.
Shaw is very insightful, kind, and to the point. I felt like she really understood me! I like her approach because she’s direct and gave me tools and homework that helped me understand my depression in a whole new way. I can’t recommend her highly enough!
I’m flexible. My approach depends on the client and the issues they want to address. I pull mostly from emotionally focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and CBT.
I’ve been trained in all of the above mentioned modalities. In addition, I teach emotionally focused therapy (an empirically supported treatment for couples) to graduate students at the University of the West.
I use a sliding scale. Therapy shouldn’t break the bank! The rates I can offer depend on the client's circumstances and the number of spots I have available at each price point. My fee scale ranges from $75-$160 per session.
How committed are you to changing your behavior?
