Shauna is someone I deeply trust, and that doesn’t come easy between combat Veterans and (former) VA psychologists. She isn’t afraid to enter, what can often be, the lion’s den of peoples’ minds. She joins people where they’re at, and literally and figuratively, enters their wilderness alongside them. Dr. Springer did not self-appoint herself the nickname, “Doc Springer” — rather that coveted term, given only to those we truly respect, was given to her by Veterans, born out of countless hours of listening to, caring for, and cultivating understanding for Veterans’ experiences.
