Gotten our family through difficult moments.
I’ve been going to Dr. Shafer for more than 6 years – in fact my whole family has been at one time or another. She has truly gotten us through some difficult moments and continues to be there for us when we need her. It’s a no brainer to recommend her!!
Highly Recommend Attending These Workshops
For beginners and experienced yoga practitioners alike, the [Integrative and Complementary Approaches for Behavioral Health] workshop is great for everyone! Both Dr. Shafer and Dr. Tebb are extremely passionate presenters, and they clearly care a lot about bringing yoga practices into mental health. And they have an abundance of knowledge and experience! I learned a great deal from their hands-on approach, and I have already incorporated these yoga experiences into my personal and professional practice. I would highly recommend attending their workshops!
Dr. Kathy provides a healing and caring environment
Dr. Kathy provides a healing and caring environment that encompasses all aspects of wellness. They don’t come any better than her!
Dr. Shafer is a knowledgeable and highly experienced practitioner who uses a variety of techniques to help you focus, see inside yourself, learn and eventually heal. From psychotherapy to yoga and meditation Dr. Shafer has quite a number of tools at hand. Yet, with all of this knowledge and experience, she continues to learn and grow herself as she helps us do the same. Five stars!
Dr. Kathryn Shafer has earned the best score possible as my personal therapist.
It feels as though you are communicating with a good friend so you naturally feel totally at ease saying whatever you need or want to say. Of course, she is welcoming, knowledgable, intelligent, and extremely informative. She imparts seemingly small things like quips or poems or sayings that you simply take in at that moment…..but when the lightbulb (no, FLOODLIGHT) finally goes off in your head it is always a “WOW“ kind of moment. Kathy Shafer has helped me to see my personal life situations from different perspectives that has helped me be more accepting and understanding. I first went to see her as a “scared of everything” kind of person who worried about everything but now I’m more of the “bring it on, I can handle it and do what is necessary” kind of person. Big step in the right direction and it was Dr. Kathryn Shafer who got me there. Thank you so much, doc. 🙂
Kind, caring, compassionate.

Integral, inspiring, informed and engaging!
I have known Dr. Shafer both professionally and personally for over 14 years. I have found Dr. Shafer to be integral, inspiring, informed and engaging. She continues to challenge herself to grow spiritually as well as expand her knowledge base to be on the cutting edge of the ever evolving field of psychology. Dr. Shafer’s vast experience, knowledge and creativity gives birth to an experience that’s interactive and fun. I most admire Dr. Shafer’s commitment to making this world a better place one cause at a time, one workshop at a time, one class at a time, one family at a time, one life at a time.
I have known Dr Shafer in many capacities. As my first therapist, over 20 yrs ago, she was instrumental in helping me lay the foundation for mind, body, spirit wellness. She has also been my teacher and mentor over the years. Dr Shafer walks the talk and is the real deal!
I have known and personally worked with Kathy (Dr. Shafer) in serving client systems since 2006. She has provided our organization (Genesis House) with continued oversight, consultation, and training for DCF substance abuse licensing. As a colleague and fellow LCSW, I personally know of her core values and services to emulate on a micro (individual therapy), mezzo (group/family therapy), and macro (community) level. In addition to the conventional therapy models she utilizes, she also provides extensive holistic healing via yoga and meditation therapies.

The first time I met Dr. Shafer, I knew I wanted to become a client of hers. Her genuine and caring personality was one of the first things I saw in her.

I look forward to every appointment knowing I will leave with new tools for life!

Highly recommend her EMDR expertise!
Dr. Shafer is amazing! She is extremely educated. Not only in the academic sense of the word, but also in life experience. Her knowledge, wisdom, quick wit, positive energy and genuine effort of making people feel at ease is so enjoyable. She listens carefully to issues brought to her and even after the first appointment can help turn negatives into positives. I also highly recommend her EMDR expertise. She is truly a healing professional with a beautiful burst of positive energy.

You are a God-send.
Dr, Shafer, I found your book (Asthma-Free in 21 Days) on Amazon. Was diagnosed as a perennial asthmatic as a child and have had problems with it during various stages throughout my life. I am 68 years old now and these exercises really work! You are a God-send. Thanks for the hard work you put into writing this book and for getting the message out. Here’s hoping that millions of other people are able to benefit from your work as I and many others have. Thank you, thank you, thank you!.
Helped Hone My Skills
The training offered me the opportunity to become more familiar with innovative and holistic interventions in relation to breath work, yoga, and movement in general. Practice sessions offered during the training, helped me to hone skills that I have since been able to weave into group and individual sessions.
Kathy amazes me, inspires me and deserves all honors.
The strongest most generous and thoughtful, especially while battling for life! She’s always got your back. Kathy amazes me, inspires me and deserves all honors.
Yoga Nidra on Zoom!
Dear Dr. Kathy,
Dr. Shafer has worked with me for several years and has been a wonderful therapist. She’s worked with me on some very bad anxiety and issues with depression, as well as a tragedy in my life a couple years back. She even takes the time to call and wish me a happy birthday, which shows how much she cares about her patients.
Dedicated to the mental health and wellness of her patients.
I love the fun programs that Dr. Shafer offers. The yoga nidra is especially relaxing. I also enjoy the different workshops Dr. S organizes. She is dedicated to the mental health and wellness of her patients. She is an extremely qualified therapist who is constantly adding to her qualifications. An inspiration to all.
Her approach was direct, professional and light-hearted.
I was recommended to contact Dr. Shafer years ago when I faced life changing circumstances. Knowing her yoga background was a plus for me. Then I was so pleasantly surprised to have her canine with us in the first session. Yes! This is where I wanted to be. Her approach was direct, professional and light-hearted and she guided me through those rough times. I will always be grateful to have connected with her.
I highly recommend seeing Dr. Shafer.

Dr. Shafer helped me get through my divorce. My spouse was an alcoholic and without Dr. Shafer’s guidance, I would not have known how to handle that situation and how to address those issues with my kids. She is a straight shooter and I highly recommend her.
I love [Dr. Kathy]…great therapist…I highly recommend from personal experience
Beautiful blend of intellectual knowledge and spiritual wisdom.
If you are looking for someone who walks the talk, Dr. Kathy Shafer is the one for you! Dr. Shafer is an author and has decades of personal and professional experience. Dr. Shafer is a beautiful blend of intellectual knowledge and spiritual wisdom. She is extremely respected by her peers, and by her current and past clients. I first met Dr. Shafer in 1988 and have experienced her work firsthand as a client, as a student, and as a mentee. I am so grateful for all that she has contributed to my life over the years.
Dr. Shafer is an incredibly effective therapist
Dr. Shafer is an incredibly effective therapist and truly cares about helping each of her clients. I regularly attended a women’s group at Limitless Potentials, her private practice, and was impressed by her methods and dedication to her clients. She was able to help each of us in the group drastically improve our quality of life despite the fact that our issues varied greatly. I used to believe therapy could not help me as I suffered from severe symptoms of PTSD for many years. After working with Dr. Kathy, I am no longer experiencing any symptoms of PTSD and I wake up each day with a childlike sense of hope and wonder. She is a pioneer in her field and often speaks at conferences about her professional approach. I highly recommend Dr. Shafer to anyone who is looking for an outstanding therapist.
Dr Shafer is an excellent therapist!
I liked that we set goals for treatment, and work toward them! I always want the “bottom line truth” which she provides. I have made many positive changes in my life with her help!
Most caring and fun therapists ever!
Dr. Shafer is one of the most caring and fun therapists ever. We connected from the first meeting and have been building and deepening our relationship ever since.
She is a true blessing.
