Carita R. Shawchuck, Ph.D.

 
I felt called to become a child and adolescent psychologist as an adolescent, and strive to help individuals make emotional, relational, and spiritual changes that free them to be more of who God created them to be. I believe it is important to develop a plan of treatment that helps individuals and families meet their goals for change and create a safe space for that change to take place.
 
I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families., and specialize in the treatment of anxiety and mood disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, PTSD, ADHD, and stress disorders. I employ treatment strategies that are considered best practices. These strategies may include cognitive behavior therapy, exposure therapy, skills training, relaxation and meditation, and parent training.
 
Therapy is a process by which the Spirit of God can work to bring freedom into people’s lives. It is my goal to help everyone who engages in therapy to experience more freedom.
