Songbird evokes images words cannot describe – of soaring, beauty, singing, and rising above. This form of beauty can feel unthinkable to the one who is suffering. These images seem far removed from the tragedies, painful depths, and cold loneliness of life. At Songbird Counseling, we are passionate about bringing you Hope, Peace, and Freedom through caring therapeutic relationships and evidence-based treatments. Find Hope for Healing. When you’re facing the bleak moments of life, we’ll walk alongside you to move out of despair and into hope, the kind of hope that brings about lasting change and well-being. Discover Peace through Trials. We’ll work with you to find calm in the midst of the storm. And when the storms of life continue or seem inescapable, we’ll help you regain solid footing. Finally Gain Freedom from Shame. We’ll partner with you to unearth the roots of shame and unlock the bonds that hold you so you are free to rise like the songbird and enjoy life to its fullest. It was out of this passion for providing high-quality care and life-changing results that Songbird Counseling was formed. Songbird Counseling was created in 2022 by Aaron Shaffer, MA, LPC, CSAT when he noticed Huntsville’s growing demand for research-backed therapeutic care in a rapidly expanding city. We're a team of trauma-informed clinical mental health professionals trained in the latest science and data and focused on meeting the growing needs of Huntsville. The Songbird Counseling team consists of Aaron Shaffer, MA, LPC, CSAT Kendall Saunders, MA, ALC* under the supervision of Kathy Troyanek, LPC-S, CSAT Kelli Pavlovec, Student Intern from Townsend Institute at Concordia University Irvine Veronica Adcock, Admin
