Shawdawn Mccants, LPC
Counseling is a journey of self-discovery. Sometimes the daily hustle and bustle can leave us in a state of "just existing," forgetting about those things that matter most, family, faith and joy causing all kind of conflict and chaos in our professional and personal lives. It is my desire through a Holistic approach to help you know and live the best version of you. On the therapeutic journey the goal is to increase self-awareness through self-exploration, realization, and refocusing resulting in intentional living. I am merely the facilitator demonstrating a genuine concern and compassion.
Overall, my philosophy as a therapist is to treat each person as a unique individual, worthy of unconditional acceptance while building a foundation that will facilitate a life-long journey of becoming the best version of you through continual knowledge building and peace of mind.
I provide action-oriented therapy in a Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy framework as well as other skill-based approaches, such as Solution Focused and Reality therapy that is customized for individuals, families, couples and children. My therapeutic approach involves helping people change their thoughts and behaviors and adopt healthy coping strategies.
My specialty is adolescence, HIV/AIDS, crisis intervention and life coaching. Age 6yrs-70yrs.
