Ian D. Shafer, MA, LPC

(he/him)

Ian Shafer, MA, LPC is the owner of Peace of Mind Counseling, Consulting, and Supervision LLC and a fully Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Michigan. He completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Family Life & Human Sexuality, and his Master of Arts degree in Counseling, both at Central Michigan University.

Ian describes his approach to counseling as being “a flashlight in a dark place.” He believes that clients have the strength and answers they need within, and that finding those and using those assets is only a matter of shining light on the dark places life can take a person to help them find their way back to a more ideal path. To this end, Ian tends toward a therapeutic model that incorporates elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational-Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Humanistic/Person-Centered (Rogerian) Therapy, and strengths-based motivational therapy.

 

Ian is versed in working with clients with a variety of concerns, including, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, adjustment, grief and loss, stress, coping, relationships, sexuality, gender/identity, transition, and cultural issues. He has worked with a diverse group of clients over the course of his professional career, and currently focuses on work with clients ranging from adolescence to adulthood. Ian provides treatment for individuals, couples, and families.

In addition to counseling, Ian is also credentialed as a clinical supervisor for Limited License Professional Counselors (LLPCs) in Michigan, and as an Honorary Instructor with Walden University.

(she/her)

Cat Moran, MS, LLC, is a Limited License Counselor working under the supervision of Ian Shafer, MA, LPC, at Peace of Mind CCS LLC.

She previously obtained her Bachelor of Arts in French Language and Literature from the University of Akron (Ohio), where she grew up.


Cat believes that counseling provides space for individuals to develop authentic relationships that facilitate one’s ability to process and understand their thoughts, patterns, and behaviors in a new light. Furthermore, it can provide the insight to become more resilient towards navigating through life’s challenges. Cat believes that the tools for congruency lie within each of us, and it is up to the client to identify what truly empowers them to be successful in their own life.
