Mo Anne Shyne MA, LCMHC
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor
Specializing in Children, Adolescents, & Families



"If we can feel it, we can heal it."
Beyond technique and theory is the realm of the relationship: the ongoing human-to-human connection providing the foundation for change. The therapeutic relationship is the safe container allowing one to more fully and completely feel the presence of self while in the presence of another.

The purpose of a therapeutic relationship is to assist the individual receiving therapy to change his or her life for the better. Such a relationship is crucial, as it is often times the first setting in which the person receiving treatment shares intimate thoughts, beliefs, and emotions regarding the issue(s) in question.
