About Me

You’ve probably come looking for help because things have been too uncomfortable for awhile. Life has not felt quite right. Enough so that you’re finally looking for a change. And looking for someone that will help you on your journey is intimidating, for sure!

My name is Anthony Shannon and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas. I received an undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago and a graduate degree from Bellevue University. I have a background in trauma work with children, adolescents, and adults. While my main focus has been on trauma, I have a wide variety of experience helping to guide others through the struggles we go through in life. My approach to therapy is gentle and sometimes humorous, but always based on a safe and therapeutic relationship.

I am trained in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics and in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, experiential therapy, and expressive arts therapy. No matter what, therapy should be tailored to fit your needs, your goals, and your strengths.

I can offer you a safe and empathic space to shine a light into dark corners and begin fortifying the strengths you already have. Therapy can feel vulnerable, and you deserve a place where feeling vulnerable is okay.

Anthony is without exaggeration, the sole reason for my being alive today. I felt hopeless and unheard and he somehow pulled me back from the dead and has helped me start to understand myself. I will always wish I could afford to pay him more because I’m damn sure I’m not paying him enough.

I'm very appreciative of Anthony's expertise and guidance. I feel like I can be vulnerable and open with him and that his guidance remains neutral and balanced -- something that I TRULY need.

He is very good and truly understands what you are going thru. He is a blessing to talk to.

Anthony is great! I have always understood the value of good professional mental health experts. I have navigated various systems and met with other professionals who were good but Anthony is just what I needed in a therapist. He understood me from the get go and he’s very down to earth and explains things in a clear way so that it’s easy for me to remember. This way I can easily recall and use what I’ve learned. It’s really refreshing to get therapy that’s this effective for me. Highly Recommend him!

I thought I was crazy until I read the reviews from others. Lol. Anthony really is great. It’s the most comforting feeling to be seen. In times I’m too hard on myself he tells me to cut that out- he’s really awesome at helping me gain perspective and supporting me through my thought processes and decision making. I tried this app on a whim but I can easily say being matched with him was the best thing for me at this point in my life. Even when I told him I felt like I was needing him less and less as our months of counseling have helped me tremendously, he was super supportive of that. He said it makes him happy to know we don’t need him as much, and I believe him. I’m so thankful for the past 6 months of counseling and I’m so happy I gave BetterHelp a try- TOTALLY WORTH IT!

I have already learned so much from our sessions. Anthony is so easy to talk to and is very supportive. I was nervous that I wouldn’t feel comfortable with 1-on-1 online therapy, but he goes the extra mile to make our sessions feel safe.

He is very compassionate and easy to talk to. One of the most supportive counselors I’ve ever had, who knows how to really listen.
