COASTAL THERAPY WELCOMES YOU

Every one of us possesses an internal core of resilience, strength and determination.  My goal in treatment is to help individuals to recognize, embrace, and utilize these attributes to navigate the challenges they face and to achieve peak emotional fitness.  
Emotional fitness is a state in which the mind is capable of staying away from negative thoughts and, therefore, can focus on creative and constructive tasks. Therapy must focus on and nurture our mind, body and soul to achieve the totality of emotional fitness.  This is the focus of my treatment.
To achieve this, I integrate evidence based practices, including CBT, DBT and Positive Psychology, with Mindfulness and Movement in sessions that take place via telehealth and in various settings in nature.

KAREN SHANAHAN, L.M.H.C.

I have had the privilege of working in education and counseling psychology for over 20 years in a variety of roles, including practitioner, director, and co-chair of a non-profit Perinatal Mental Health group.  I continue to practice and to fuel my passion by supporting adults in need of individual therapy to help cope with anxiety, depression, emotional regulation, and trauma.  In addition to this, I have a specialization in supporting individuals dealing with postpartum depression, infertility and coping with the birth of a premature infant and strive to offer needed support to woman navigating the challenges of being a  mother. 

Furthermore, with providing over 12 years of clinical training and supervision, I remain committed to supporting other clinicians in their professional development and client care, offering both individual and group supervision opportunities.
