Before i found Shawn I felt like my life was doomed and that nothing would make it better. Things were falling apart and I felt completely alone. I was depressed and had comtimplated suicide a number of times. I trusted no one and felt that no one cared what happened to me. When I first met Shawn she was easy to talk to and showed over time that she really cared about me. She has shown me that someone does care and that she would never judge me. She has helped me in numeruous ways.

My experience with Shawn L. Gauthier has been phenomenal. I was referred to her by my previous counselor and have been working with her for two years. Her professional manner allows me to feel comfortable talking with her, and she shares her insight with complete compassion.

Shawn has helped me through the most difficult times a person could face- the death of a child and divorce. She is encouraging, compassionate and positive. Every time I walk out of her office I feel like a new person ready to take on the challenges of life.

Shawn is an absolutely wonderful therapist. She is kind, compassionate, but also able to challenge me in a gentle, yet direct way. She has really great insight into eating disorder treatment and trauma. She's helped me process trauma and take the blame off of myself.
