Those who look to him for help

will be radiant with joy;

no shadow of shame will darken their faces.”

(Psalms 34:4–5, NLT)

"I recommend Shawn Geraty at Grace Like a River Counseling. He is a very gifted counselor with an ability to bring people into God's healing presence. He has been very good at listening to me each session and quickly discerning where to focus and then inviting Jesus to bring healing and truth. I appreciate Shawn's combination of counseling with Presence-based healing."

Testimonial

"There are places in my soul where I've been stuck. I’ve wanted to thrive in life … but couldn't. I needed help. I’ve found that there are counselors who will let you sit and talk about your problems. There are others whose goal is to help you heal. Shawn knows that Holy Spirit longs to heal us. He skillfully leads me back to the broken places - the places where I became “stuck”, and we invite Holy Spirit to show us the truth about those times. As I encounter the truth of God’s presence during the toughest times of my life, the twisted knot in my soul unravels and I feel God's love and peace again. I'm thankful for Shawn's wisdom and his reminder to look for God’s presence and compassion."

Testimonial

"I have used a number of counselors over the years, and I can say that Shawn has without question been the most effective. He has been able to change the type of counseling we do based on my need, while still moving me forward in my journey for emotional healing. His love for broken people like us is evident and should you walk down this road with Shawn you will be treated like a person, not a paycheck. I recommend Shawn on a regular basis to people I run into and we have all had the same result. He is a good man and If you are seeking help, he is a great person to bring along on your journey."
