Hello and welcome! My name is Shaylyn Forte and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor providing online therapy to adults and adolescents 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.
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 use tools like Dr. Karyl McBride’s 5 step recovery model for narcissistic abuse, Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, and Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy to help you get to a point where you can trust yourself and those around you, feel confident and have 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 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.
