My name is Jan Shaughnessy and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Boise, Idaho.
I have been counseling the people of Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Star, Nampa, Caldwell and the Treasure Valley for over 20 years. My approach to counseling is sympathetic, and supportive, but also pragmatic. I am happy to work with anyone of any age, cultural background, or sexual orientation. I like to focus my patients on removing psychological and behavioral obstacles that can prevent you from reaching your goals and improving your relationships.
I use a method of treatment called CBT – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to focus my patients on removing psychological and behavioral obstacles. CBT can include a variety of related techniques. The goal is to challenge patterns of thinking and replace it with realistic thought processes. This technique can be used with a variety of diagnoses.
Traumatic experiences and rough times can take a toll on one’s body and mental health. My goal is to provide a logical and supportive recovery process to help you reach your goals. I Specialize in Adolescent Therapy, Mood Disorders, Marriage Counseling/Divorce, Family Therapy, Anxiety and Fears, Depression, Gay/Lesbian (LGBT) Issues, Trauma and PTSD, Weight Issues, Body Image, Grief Counseling, etc.
