Have you been feeling "stuck?" Are you having difficulty coping with stress in your life due to relationships, parenting, employment or other life transitions?
Do you have concerns about your child's behavioral or emotional functioning? Does your child have difficulty interacting with his/her peers? 
If any of the above ring true, please know that you are not alone. Often, accepting that there is a problem, or that something in your life needs improvement, can be a difficult first step. 
It is not uncommon to encounter bumps in the road, though it's important to know that these challenging times CAN improve. Together, we can work effectively to navigate the life challenges that you and/or your child are experiencing.



Dr. McShane provides individual and family therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. Further, Dr. McShane offers group style treatment for children and parents. Groups include social skills groups for elementary school children, anxiety groups for teen and preteen girls, and a parent support group, "Coffee and Comfort," for parents of children with special needs. 


When working with children, she actively engages caregivers and other important figures in the child’s life to work as a team, as we see better results when we work together. Through play therapy and behavioral interventions, Dr. McShane encourages children to express themselves in an age-appropriate manner to best understand their emotional experience.

Dr. McShane understands psychotherapy with adolescents and adults to be an active and collaborative process. This involves both self-exploration and the application of practical skills to assist in solving problems.
