Licensed Professional Counselor
Paul Allen Shearer, LPC
I believe in a holistic approach of guiding individuals to a place of inner peace by addressing fear, anxiety, and sadness and the responsibility one has in their personal "response abilities" or, choosing a response as opposed to reacting out of habit.
I have over 25 years of experience treating: addictions (chemical, sexual, porn and internet), anxiety, depression, anger, obsessive disorders, adolescent angst, sexual abuse recovery, abandonment issues, divorce recovery, relationship issues, grief, loss, and co-dependency. I prefer to refer to them as "the human condition."
You are more than a diagnosis or a victim of circumstance and emotion. Empowering yourself to make different choices is the quickest way of feeling better today.
Take a deep breath. Find gratitude in difficult times. Focus on what's positive in your life - not all the negative in the world. Practice peace and joy. Life is a matter of practice. What are you practicing in your life?
