Hi, I am Dr. Shawna Freshwater

It is so awesome to (virtually) meet you. I am giving you a big hug across the internet because  you are probably going through a tough time, and you are trying your best to be positive, and are reaching out to get help.  

Proud of You ! ...for your action towards feeling better and self-empowerment !   #SelfLoveWarrior

Are you overwhelmed by negative thinking, worry, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, trauma, or loss?   Do you feel stressed out?   Are you having difficulty coping?   Are you exhausted from suffering?    Ever notice when you are overwhelmed, everything seems more difficult? Your relationships, your work, your emotional and physical health, and your joy all become diminished…  Symptoms are the flashing alert signs telling you, it is time to seek help.

I am specialized in simple direct focused solutions for symptom relief to multi-varied personality, emotional, and behavioral challenges.  Check out my website for the list.  I have been providing psychological assessment and psychotherapy for more than 20-years.  

I became a Doctor of Clinical Psychology because mental health affects EVERYTHING....And mental health professionals are Not created equal.  "Therapist" “counselor” “psychotherapist” are all just general terms used by the “layperson” or public. 

When you are shopping for a "therapist", it is important to understand that therapists vary quite widely in their level of education, years of training, expertise, modalities of treatment, and ethical code. When you hire a therapist who earned a PhD a Doctor of  Clinical Psychology, then you are making sure that you are hiring a expert with the Highest level of degree in Psychology and the highest level of training and experience in the market. 

Keep in mind, most "therapists" have only a 2-year graduate level education, That is, a masters level degree (i.e. LMHC, LCSW, LMFC). They are not doctors.   I am sure that you want the “best of the best “ particularly because you are investing your time, effort, and money.  Here is a link with more information on the significant differences between Doctors of Psychology and mental health providers: https://spacioustherapy.com/difference-psychiatrist-clinical-psychologist-social-worker-mental-health-counselor/

I hope that you will read the article because I wish you the “best” in choosing your “therapist” and your therapeutic journey.  It is also very important that you and your therapist are an "Awesome Fit".   Reach out to me for a FREE 15-minute telephone consultation  https://spacioustherapy.com/contact/ , to see if we would be a "Awesome Fit".   Even if we do not work together, I would be more than happy to answer your questions to put your mind at ease, and help you get something useful out of our time together.  

My website provides a ton of information about my practice, education, training, credentials, certifications. 

I am published scientist and clinical author writing for other doctors in scholarly scientific journals, books, and book chapters.
