Dr. Shafer has helped me through some immensely difficult decisions in my life, and he continues to support me throughout the next steps. He doesn't just quietly listen like many therapists, but actively offers thoughts and input that he encourages you to question and make your own decisions. I would recommend him to anyone. His availability is not the best, but his scheduling system makes it very easy to find when he is available and make an appointment. He has always been available when needed

Dr. Shafer helped me through the toughest time of my life as I was going through a divorce from a toxic person with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. He helped guide me out of a scared, confused and depressed state to a beautiful state of clarity, confidence and peace. I embrace his approach to psychology, which combines transcendental meditation and cognitive behavioral therapy. His presence, demeanor and genuine care sets him apart. I am very thankful for our paths crossing.

Dr. Shafer has had such a positive effect on my life. He is very smart, genuine, professional, and very easy to talk to. I am so glad I didn't give up after my first terrible experience with another psychologist. The actual psychologist makes a world of difference!

Dr. Shafer is an amazing therapist. I have been seeing him for years for various reasons and he has helped me immensely. I have seen a few therapists before him and I couldn't have been luckier to have come across him on my insurance list, because he is the absolute best! I recommend him to everyone I know. I could never thank him enough for all he has done for me.
