Shawn M Rodrigues, MC, NCC, LPC, Counselor in Chandler
In our busy, materialistic world we are often pulled in many directions by the demands of our profession, family, and society. Many have experienced trauma which has forever altered their lives and perception of the world as a whole. This fragmentation of our lives is often a reflection of our inner selves as well. Together client and therapist enter a unique therapeutic journey to reunite the fragments of the inner self, reconnect to innate wisdom, and rediscover one's world with its many opportunities.
Following my masters degree I received 2 years of additional training at the Gestalt Institute of Phoenix and was certified by the Equine Growth and Learning Association in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy in January 2006. These modalities are suited for both everyday difficulties as well as trauma related issues.
I enter the therapeutic relationship without agenda or judgment and with the expectation that the client is a willing participant in the process. We discard self-judgment, bring attention to your experience of both internal and external realities, and explore how they play a part in your experience of the world.
