--Immediate openings for BCBS and self pay clients--

My name is Shae Moreau (they/them), and I am a Licensed Associate Counselor (LAC) under the supervision of Cassidi Beckstein, LPC. I earned both my Bachelor’s in Psychology and Master of Counseling from Arizona State University.


Throughout my life, I have seen people change through the power of genuine, non-judgmental counseling that allows people a safe space to look at themselves and how they fit into the world. My goal is to provide that same warmth and compassion in a way that is tailored to fit an individual’s needs. I firmly believe that everyone has what it takes to grow, and I am here to provide the reflective space for that growth. 


I work with adults using a trauma-informed lens. As an LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist, I see each client as their own unique person and wish to honor their culture, sexuality, belief systems, and gender identity. I strive to create a positive environment where people can be their authentic selves.


My favorite quote from Anthony Doerr’s, All the Light We Cannot See, sums up my counseling philosophy: “Why else do any of this if not to become who we want to be?”
