My name is Shawn Alyea. I've been a Licensed Professional Counselor for 20 years, and a Counselor Supervisor for 5. I practice compassion driven, creative counseling with a dose of humor. I believe even during the tough times in relationships and marriage we can find hope, joy and love. In fact intimacy often times occurs during the circumstances that lead us to seek support. I operate from a Christian perspective and believe a couple's relationship is to be cherished and nurtured. Many couples seek counseling when they have lost belief that their relationship can endure or recover, but I believe given love, understanding and a willingness to continue to invest in your relationship you can overcome and experience the intimacy you had once hoped for .
I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy along with a variety of expressive techniques to reach a point of healing. I find these techniques to be most effective when matching them with your personality, goals for treatment, and styles of learning.
I’ve successfully worked with numerous couples addressing the spectrum of issues couples face . I look forward to working with you as you grow together.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Intimacy-related issues
- Bipolar disorder
I also have experience in LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Anger management, Self esteem, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, ADHD

Shawn has been a blessing. I have never connected with a counselor so quickly, and he never made me feel judged or pushed in a certain direction as with some of my other counselors. I would definitely recommend to friends and family! He has taken a bit of the weight off my shoulders in just a few visits. Thanks Shawn!
