Rebecca Shaughnessy, MA, MS, LPC

Primary Therapist

I am so glad you made it to my page today as you are deciding who to choose for your therapist. I would like to share with you a little about me and my approach. I have a passion for helping those in need find their inner strength and resilience. We all have it within us to find solutions to our problems; sometimes we just need some guidance. Are you at the point where you're saying "I just need to try harder" or "I used to be able to" is just not working? I offer an integrative, client-centered approach to counseling. Our work together will be collaborative in nature. Just one small step is all it takes to begin the process of change. If you are struggling, reach out to me and we will begin the process together. Building a strong therapeutic relationship may be the bridge between who you are now and who your are yet to become. I work with a variety of issues including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, stress, grief, trauma, mood disorders, OCD, panic disorder, and women's issues. Whatever is going on, let's explore together!!!

In addition to standard techniques in counseling, I believe there is much to say about including God on your journey of recovery. Those seeking therapy typically do so with some sort of faith that their life can be better. As a Christian counselor, I seek to integrate psychology and spirituality in the counseling process. I am a lifelong Christian with some training in pastoral counseling through Liberty University. With God on your side, anything in life is possible. I would be honored to make that journey with you.
