Mental Health Counselor
I specialize in treating trauma-related conditions, anxiety, and depression.
Shearer Counseling Services, PLLC
Bldg. 1, Ste. 200-3
I am a licensed professional counselor with experience working with children, adolescents, and adults on a variety of presenting concerns. I have experience supervising beginning and more seasoned counselors, and currently work as adjunct faculty in UNC Charlotte\'s Masters Counseling Program. I am passionate about providing people with space to share their story, and I am always working to fine-tune my ability to fully hear and respond to that story. My ultimate goal as a counselor is to help people move toward insight, authenticity, and connectedness. My clinical experiences include outpatient counseling in a college setting, in-home crisis outreach, and serving clients on a burn intensive care unit. I have an eclectic approach to counseling and believe no one modality suits every client, though my tendency is to understand clients through a psychodynamic lens. I am conscientious about privilege, power, and oppression, and the critical role these forces play for all of us. I am level two trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which is an evidence-based treatment modality for trauma-related issues. Feel free to contact me to ask more about this method.
Why I Love What I Do
Sitting with people in a counseling space - a space that invites people to shed facades or niceties - makes me feel more fully human.
