My Approach & Values
Shawntres has been working with couples and individuals since 2014 and has advanced training in the areas of sexuality, spirituality, trauma recovery, and attachment. As a LGBTQ+ therapist, she provides a sex-positive therapy space where all types of individuals and relationships are accepted and welcome. Prior to her work with Couples Learn, Shawntres donated time providing pro-bono trauma recovery therapy to survivors exiting sex trafficking. She is passionate about helping individuals and couples have healthy, thriving sex lives and connected relationships.
Shawntres is currently completing her Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology where she is learning about integrating Eastern spiritual practices such as mindfulness, meditation and spirituality into her therapeutic work. Shawntres believes that the therapeutic relationship is a catalyst for deep, lasting change that provides space for recognizing and challenging negative relationship patterns. Shawntres’ clients describe her as warm, empathetic, transparent, authentic and wise.
