About Shawn

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor. Having over 500 hours of training in Gestalt Therapy I continue to hone on my skills by consulting and working with seasoned Gestalt therapists around the country and applying this knowledge to my work in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP). Having its roots in Gestalt and Person Centered Therapy, EAP is an organic fit for my abilities, talents, and interests. I became certified by the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) in 2006 and currently in the process of completing my Advanced Certification.

I spend most of my professional time utilizing my equine staff to assist a variety of populations. The horses provide a bridge to self-awareness, mindfulness and healing that can augment, assist, and springboard treatment. Working with the horses promotes empowerment, self-esteem, personal responsibility and experiential learning, healing and growth. I have also attended the Level I training in the Murray Method and utilizes these tools in the arena; specifically focusing on the recognition and reuniting of the fragmented self that is often a result of trauma.
