Great counselor, grest service
Latasha checks up on me even when I basically ignore her for my own personal reasons and situations. I appreciate the understanding she shows. She does what she can to help me.
Doctor Latasha Shannon, helped me set out key goals on the path of self discovery. Thank you.
Ms. Shannon helped me with my issues, had good suggestions, and the worksheets were pretty easy to complete. I feel like I can use a lot of the methods in communicating with my husband, and am better prepared when we both decide to see a marriage counselor. Thank you!
Latasha Shannon was very helpful, I was able to vent without feeling judged. I was really comfortable with talking to her, she gave me great advice that really helped me a lot.
