Shanen Sadowski

Shanen earned her master’s degree at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in Professional Counseling, with an emphasis in Clinical Mental Health and has additional training as Brainspotting practitioner. Her brain-based approach to therapy is empathetic and nonjudgmental, considering aspects of the whole person: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.

Areas of special interest include, but are not limited to:


  • Individuals
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Trauma/ Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Assertiveness/Setting boundaries
  • Becoming your best, authentic self
  • Parenting children and teens with trauma histories or mental health diagnosis

My three greatest passions:



This is my heart. I love supporting others and teaching you how to not just set your goals but actually achieve them.  Big dreams need big thoughts and belief.  I help coaching clients find the blind-spots in their thinking that is keeping them (or could keep them) from reaching that goal they’ve been pursuing.


The thoughts and stories we tell ourselves trigger emotions, which drive our behaviors, bringing results (whether good, bad or ugly!). Let’s identify your beliefs and examine what you’ve been telling yourself so we can redirect and bring the results you’ve been wanting. The brain efficiently does what it’s always done…. until new neuropathways are created. You are capable of so much more than you know. I’ll help you get there!


Survivors of trauma want to heal, get unstuck, or become even stronger having been through it. I work with issues ranging from chronic stress to post traumatic stress disorder. Whether you’ve been a victim of childhood abuse, a frightening car crash, or other traumatic event, I will walk alongside you on your journey to healing and recovery.
