You long to open your heart, spread your wings, and soar. But at the same time you feel trapped in a cloud of confusion, and can't seem to find a way out.

You are now looking for supportive and caring guidance.

I provide a safe transition - a warm, cozy nest where you feel nurtured as you prepare to fly ...



Yanna Shumaker, M.S., M.A., L.P.C.


My Approach:

I am honored to accompany you as you discover your innate ability to transform your pain into self-acceptance, love and joy. The depth of this pain can determine the height of your joy.

  • I combine attentive presence with warmth, respect, empathy and playfulness to create the nest that is the therapeutic relationship.
  • I use my skills and experience to guide you as you explore the limiting response patterns that are trapped in your body, mind and soul.
  • When you are ready, I support you as you finally transform your suffering into deep compassion for yourself and others.
