“The seed of suffering in you may be strong, but don’t wait until you have no more suffering before allowing yourself to be happy.”
―Thich Nhat Hanh
The focus of Dr. Shuman’s practice is CBT, Exposure and Response Prevention, and mindfulness skills. Jeremy has training from the IOCDF and his up to date approach has helped several clients make improvements where previous therapy (including previous CBT) has been ineffective. Areas of specialty include OCD, panic attacks, health anxiety, agoraphobia, generalized anxiety disorder, insomnia, and distress related to tinnitus.
As a secondary niche, Jeremy also provides general counseling for stress, mood, family, and interpersonal difficulties for high achieving individuals (i.e. professionals in academia, medicine, law, engineering, finance, and tech). Common themes include overthinking, anger management, perfectionism, sleep improvement, boundary setting, parenting, work/life balance, assertiveness, and existential questioning.
Jeremy is an advocate for social justice, practices therapy from an LGBTQ+ affirmative stance, and continually engages with anti-racist training and self-study. He understands the role of intersectionality in personal experience with identity.
Jeremy is in-network with Aetna, Anthem BCBS, Cigna, Medicare, and United Healthcare. New clients must be 17 years old or older. He does not take EAP clients. Jeremy keeps a limited caseload and takes new clients sporadically based on availability. Hours are Monday through Friday 10 am to 5 pm.
