Shanna Nasche, LPC, RYT200
My overall mindset with any client is to assess and enhance psychological flexibility, meaning to assist clients as they navigate, adapt, and grow in response to stressful life experiences and relationships. I enjoy working with adults of all ages (including verbal teens), as well as couples. My approach to treatment is active and collaborative, creating a non-judgmental space for clients to reflect, heal, consider alternatives, and practice new skills. Though I don’t generally teach actual asanas (poses) in therapy, I’m a yoga instructor, bringing a person-centered, mindful, sense into sessions.
I often rely on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, researched approaches for a variety of therapeutic issues. I also trained in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy (Level 1) to help clients manage conflict and related difficulties in relationships.
Other tidbits: my first career was a corporate one. That knowledge allowed me to segue into leading group therapy for an outpatient program for patients whose psychological distress affected their ability to work. Last but not least, I have a heart for cancer patients, having learned about the psychological impacts of this disease.
