Shannon believes there is no way to predict what life throws our way, but how we choose to respond and navigate, determines the quality of life we get to live. She approaches each client with compassion, dignity, and respect. Clients experience an inclusive, shame-free space to explore and express who they are when working with Shannon. Shannon integrates different treatment modalities to tailor treatment to each client, including; EMDR, Creative Arts, CBT, Solution Focused Therapy, Career Counseling, Gottman Method, & more. She started her counseling career in an agency setting working with adults with severe psychiatric illness, a humbling experience that has prepared Shannon well to treat a wide range of mental health issues using trauma informed care and health support families in coping with loved ones that suffer from mental illness and cooccurring disorders. However, Shannon prioritizes person over diagnosis because she knows clients are so much more than any label.
