With a Master's degree and an LCSW, Shaun's clinical career has included substantial experience in psychiatric hospitals, both public and private. An early specialty in "dual diagnosis" clients evolved naturally into Employee Assistance work. Shaun became the "in-house" EAP provider for the University of Southern Maine in the late 80's and early 90's.
At that time, family challenges including divorce, co-parenting, coping with schools, special education, and other parenting concerns became prominent in Shaun's caseload, and became an area of focus for him.
In addition to helping individual clients with personal problems, Shaun developed an expertise in workplace issues, including workplace culture and specializing in line supervisors and the particular "people" challenges they face.
Over the years, Shaun's services have gradually evolved to include coaching/consulting in addition to psychotherapy. Shaun has facilitated or provided literally hundreds of presentations, workshops, and "lunch and learns" on many workplace and human relations topics. He has taught in a variety of settings including the University of Southern Maine, Southern Maine Community College, and various Adult Education departments.
Shaun and his family live in South Portland, Maine.
