Shea Thielemann, MA, LPC

Licensed Profesional Counselor

Our stories and life experiences play a large role in shaping who we are and why we do what we do. However, the meaning we make out of these stories has far more power over us than the events themselves. Words have power, especially the ones we speak over ourselves, and stories and narratives matter. Understanding where our interpretations of our stories come from is key in walking into further freedom and writing a new narrative for ourselves. 

 

I know what it feels like to be trapped in the same life narrative, convinced that history will surely repeat itself. I know the level of panic and fear that can surface when someone brushes up against my deepest wounds and I understand the ways in which I might find myself protecting against reexperiencing that pain so intensely. 

 

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I approach counseling through the lens of attachment, narrative work, and family systems. I have the privilege of helping individuals question and challenge some of the stories they have been living inside of for years. I work with adults who are wanting to improve their relationships and trying to make sense of their own behaviors. I also work with those who need to process a recent loss or hurt, and those who have resiliently carried losses and pain with them for some time. With a compassionate posture, I hope to create a space for you and I to tend to some of your existing wounds together. I know that looking closely at our losses and traumas can be scary and that we need support and understanding while we do the hard work of grieving and healing. 

 

With an affinity for complexity, I seek to understand my client’s unique experiences and the ways in which these experiences are impacted by our individual personalities, families, cultures, and environments. Together, we will foster curiosity and compassion for your story. By doing so, you will learn how to be in relationship with your concerns, rather than resist and work against them. 

 

It is a brave and courageous thing to look internally and do the work that will inevitably impact and improve your experiences externally. It would be an honor to walk with you toward the reconciliation, with yourself, you are seeking.
