My name is Shawn Alyea. I've been a Licensed Professional Counselor for 20 years, and a Counselor Supervisor for 5. I practice a Christ focused, compassion driven style of counseling with a dose of humor. I believe even during the trials of life we can find hope and joy. In fact growth most often occurs during the circumstances that lead us to seek support. I believe everyone deserves to be respected and valued as a unique individual created in the image of God.
I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy along with a variety of expressive techniques to reach a point of healing. Good theology is the best psychology and the more we see ourselves as God sees us the more resilient we can become. I believe a spiritual life is the most importance resource a person can draw upon. I believe prayer and reflecting on scripture, in regards to the situations we seek support with is extremely powerful.
I’ve worked with clients age 3 to 97, addressing the spectrum of human emotions from depression and anxiety, to grief, anger, love and changes in life. I look forward to walking along side you during your journey!

Shawn has been an amazing counsellor and I'm very grateful to God for placing him in my life. His expertise, support and biblical guidance already made a really big difference just after a few weeks.
