“Before I met Dr. Chavez I suffered with anxiety and panic attacks on a daily basis. I was scared to come out of the house. I haven’t had panic attacks or anxiety now for a long time. I saw Dr. Chavez in therapy for about a year. She was understanding, patient, and gave me guidance. Each session was relaxing and therapeutic and I left feeling renewed and rejuvenated. I learned tools that helped me with relaxation, controlling my panic attacks, and how to stop my anxiety throughout the day. THANK YOU Shannon, you are amazing and I appreciate what you did for me and what you do for others.”

“Therapy helped me normalize my worries and moved my view of sexuality to a wider view encompassing the broad range of creativity I already use. Thanks Dr. Chavez for being so open to shifting away from the typical medical model of sexuality and giving me a new, full experience.”
– L.D., female, 58
“The best part of working with Dr. Chavez was being able to explore both the aspects of libido and sexuality that I felt were important for me (needs and obstacles) as well as those she identified as important parts of our work. While it was at times hard to hear, I appreciated that she didn’t let me put the focus on only one or two pieces and continued to encourage my personal growth and support me along the way.”

“At first, I was apprehensive about seeing a psychologist about my problems. I felt that it would be uncomfortable to talk about my issues, and at best, the end result would be that I would simply feel better after talking about it. I can’t even begin to explain by how much Dr. Chavez exceeded my expectations. I felt comfortable from the moment we started speaking. And more importantly, this ended up being something far greater than just feeling better about myself. Dr. Chavez’s mind/body approach has truly worked wonders in my sex life, and this is the happiest I have seen my wife in a long time!”
– R.M., male, 31
“Dr. Chavez has been a blessing in my life. She is very knowledgeable in her field and thorough in her explanations. I truly appreciate her empathy. She has such a pleasant and welcoming nature, which helps when it comes to this particular subject matter. She has given me the tools needed to increase my self-confidence and has improved my sex life significantly! Love her. Thanks for what you do Dr. Chavez!!”

“I have come such a long way since I walked through her door and my friends have also noticed the changes in me. Because of my work with Dr. Chavez, I am stronger and feel more encouraged than ever that I’m headed in the right direction. Her insight is amazing and I always felt supported after my divorce from my husband. She is patient, understanding, and helped me see things that I never saw in myself that were there.”
– C.H., female, 52
“During menopause I was so confused with the many changes my mind and body were going through. Working with Dr. Chavez taught me that menopause is not the end of your sensual life but a new beginning. My new outlook on life now grows everyday physically, mentally, and spiritually. Thank You Dr. Chavez!”

“Dr. Chavez is a doctor that does more than listen to your needs. She gives you recommendations, insight, and is determined to find the answers to your questions/problems. She made me feel comfortable to talk about anything and I mean anything! I would describe her as compassionate and caring. She gives you more than a normal therapist would.”
– A.K., female, 31
“I never thought therapy could be fun! Dr. Chavez gave me the tools and confidence to get back into the dating scene and learn how to get over my fear of rejection. We worked on feeling confident about my sexuality and overall feeling good about my body.”
– J.A., male, 48
“I was embarrassed to talk about my sex life with a doctor. After working with Dr. Chavez I felt more comfortable discussing my sexual concerns and being able to reconnect with my husband after years of a sexless marriage. I felt very supported and understood by Dr. Chavez and would highly recommend her for couples and individual therapy.”
