Shaun Phoenix, MS, LCPC, has been a licensed clinical professional counselor for almost thirty years. She comes to her knowledge both through traditional models, including graduate study in mental health counseling and professional licensure in Montana, as well as the rich continuing education found in "the Cathedral of the Forest." She has been a shamanic healing practitioner for thirty years as well.
With a Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling and her clinical professional counselor's license, Shaun brings training, skills, professionalism and ethics to all her work. She is enrolled as a preferred provider with many health insurance companies.
Born in England and raised in a suburb of Washington, DC, Shaun has always embraced life's journey in its diversity of forms. The Gallatin Valley has been her home most of her adult life. In addition to her healing practice, she is a musician, writer, social justice activist, wife, and parent of an adult daughter.
Her philosophy of healing and wellness is based in the spiritual wisdom that we all arrive here whole, perfect, merged with the divine truth of who we are. Through exposure to the toxicity and woundedness of the human experience, that sense of wholeness is slowly or abruptly submerged. Our work, our life task, is therefore not to heal anything that's broken, but to remember the truth of who we are. We dis-cover this through regular spiritual practice; through deep listening and engagement with our bodies; and through noticing and trusting the zing of truth that comes in moments of transcendence.
