Hello and welcome! My name is Shaylyn Forte and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor providing online therapy to adults in their 20s and 30s who struggle with anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. I often find that those who struggle with these issues have grown up in households with narcissistic or emotionally immature parents, and I’ve seen clients get stuck with traditional talk therapy in the past. There’s great healing to be done, and I’ve found Dr. McBride’s 5 step recovery model plays an impactful role in getting unstuck and processing past hurts so that clients can move forward with self-acceptance and confidence.
When working together, we’ll start by discussing your family history and getting curious about how your family dynamics shaped you into the person you are today. We’ll then move forward with Dr. McBride’s 5 step recovery model, using Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy when appropriate to reprocess memories that have created negative beliefs about yourself. Eventually, you’ll be able to trust yourself and those around you, leading to confidence and meaningful relationships.
Working with adult children of narcissists and emotionally immature parents is a great passion of mine. There are so many people hurting out there because they didn’t receive the love, attention, and care they deserved from their parents. It’s incredibly empowering to learn how to heal yourself through therapy, and I look forward to being part of your healing journey.
My practice is fully online, and I am able to see clients located in Pennsylvania, Florida, South Carolina, and Vermont. I specialize in helping adults in their 20s and 30s who are dealing with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and trauma. I use EMDR therapy along with Dr. McBride’s 5 step recovery model to help clients get “unstuck” and move forward with self-acceptance and confidence. I am not in network with any insurance, but am happy to talk with you about the possibility of getting reimbursed from your insurance through your out of network benefits. I also have a few sliding scale spots available for clients who are a good fit clinically, but cannot afford my full rate.
