My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, helpful and non-judgmental atmosphere in which to explore the issues creating challenges for individuals and families.

Everyone has their own unique story to tell with victories and hurdles. Through our interaction we can identify and understand your strengths and create tools enabling you to understand and work through challenges. Read more


Josh Aronoff, MA, LPC

Confidence can come from knowing you have choices. Each person’s life experiences are unique and have taught them to use certain skills and tools. It is my goal as a therapist not to tell you how live, but to help you develop a few more skills and tools so you can be more confident in the choices you make. I use a strength based approach that includes drawing from cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, solution focused, and systems therapy. Read more

Samantha Juve, LCSW

I began my career working with women who had experienced trauma and this compelled me to pursue my Master’s of Social Work degree from the University of Wisconsin- Madison and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have experience working in residential eating disorder treatment, outpatient substance use, and mental health treatment. I volunteer at the Free Health Clinic in Stoughton, WI as a mental health therapist. When I am not in the office I enjoy spending time with my family and in nature. I offer individual outpatient therapy for individuals struggling with mental health concerns including depression, anxiety, eating disorders and substance use disorders. My approach is client-centered and client-lead, informed by clinical theory. I tailor my approaches to each individual because I believe that there are different paths to healing and living our best lives. Now accepting clients in our Janesville office.

Shauna Weiskotten, MS LPC-IT

All people need to feel understood. To have someone really see you and “get” you can be powerful. As a therapist, I seek to understand my clients on a deep level and help them understand themselves this way also. This provides a foundation for more meaningful work together. My role in this work is to empower you to be the best and most authentic version of yourself that you can be and to help you navigate and work through challenges along the way.
I have experience working with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and difficulty with life changes. I enjoy working with clients on overcoming past trauma, especially. Also, I communicate well with people who speak English as a second language. (I taught English for two years in Ukraine.)
Comunico bien con personas que hablan inglés como segunda lengua. (Enseñé inglés por dos años en Ucrania.) Sin embargo, no soy hablante nativa de español. Por eso, para ofrecer los mejores servicios de terapia que puedo y para tratar de evitar malentendidos, prefiero trabajar con clientes que hablan por lo menos un poco de inglés o con niños o adolescentes bilingües que tienen padres que hablan español.
I am available 9:00-5:00 pm Monday-Thursday with possible weekend hours. You can reach me for an appointment at shauna@shaunatherapy.com or at 608-286-8331.
