Welcome! If you are looking for a safe space, with someone who is down to earth, direct and compassionate...you are in the right spot. My clinical practice is grounded in the belief that we are all the experts of our own lives and we have the inner wisdom needed to create the life we want. However, many of us experience trauma, and other obstacles that lead to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, chronic self-doubt and a loss of purpose. If you find yourself wanting to achieve greater harmony in your life, to have a sense of peace, to move from a place of just surviving to thriving, then I am here to assist you.
Who am I and how can I help? My name is Shavon and I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) with over 10 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked with both families and individuals dealing with a wide arrange of challenges such as: depression, anxiety, maternal mental health, life transitions, parenting issues, abuse, low self-esteem and lack of boundaries.
My therapeutic style is eclectic, and tailored to your unique needs. I utilize skills and techniques from several modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, internal family systems, and solution focused therapy. However, the goal is always to assist you in gaining the tools you need to navigate life's challenges and create the life you deserve. I understand that when most people seek the services of a therapist, something in their life is causing them great discomfort. Therefore, I work to provide not only a listening ear but also strategies and a concrete plan of action address your discomfort.
I know that it takes a tremendous amount of courage to seek assistance and I want to honor you for that. If you feel that I am the right therapist for you please reach out, I am ready and able to assist you on your healing journey.
**I am accepting clients in both Minnesota and Maine for virtual appointments.
