I am a certified EMDR specialist which equips me to work with clients who have experienced the most traumatic situations in their lives….whether personally or having learning of the event. Additionally, I am licensed to work with clients who have addictive behaviors such as substance abuse.
My focus on trauma gives me the opportunity to get down to the core of many problems that manifest in symptoms of anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and more. I dare to go where others are uncomfortable in the most empathetic and compassionate manner. I have respect for all individuals!

My name is Shawn Parker. I am a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC), Licensed Processional Counselor Associate (LPCA), and a Licensed Certified Abuse Specialist Associate (LCASA). I have experience in individual, family, and psychosocial rehabilitation group counseling, assisting individuals with issues such as self-esteem, time management, anger management, behavioral difficulties, child and adolescent development, family communication, and substance abuse. I also have experience in providing services for individuals of all ages, lifestyles, ethnicity/cultural backgrounds, religious faiths, and diverse socioeconomic status. I am extremely excited about the opportunity to service my community and the individuals and families represented.
Counseling is a collaborative effort between the clinician and the client. I strive to create a warm and caring atmosphere with unconditional positive regard so that the client will feel safe and respected while receiving services.
My theoretical approach is based on cognitive behavioral techniques and person centered thinking which focuses on the idea that our thoughts are the foundation of our feelings and behaviors. CBT allows individuals the opportunity to examine faulty thought processes while gaining insight that leads to more positive choices.
I work with children and families of all ages. I specialize in working with children between the ages of 5 and 10 who are having trouble expressing themselves, shows obvious signs of low self- esteem, aggression, isolation, depression, or anxiety. Services are extended to the family unit to better understand the child and serve holistically in comprehending the child’s world (family counseling, psychoeducation). I also work with individuals that may feel alone in their battle with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, anger, or is unsure of the future because of the inability to adapt to life changes.
My commitment is to provide innovative ways for helping individuals who need coping skills and guidance to deal with their circumstances. Collaboratively working together, therapy may assist you with a better understanding of who you are, where you are, and where you want to be in life.
After personally seeing how therapy drastically changes lives, my compassion for life, purpose, and meaning compels me to assist others in their journey. My goal and sense of fulfillment is to provide that same empowerment, providing the necessary tools to accomplish your goals and become a better you.
