About me

I am a Doctor of Behavioral Health licensed as an LPC in Colorado with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and integrated behavioral/mental health provider. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, parenting problems, and homelessness. Additionally, I have helped many people who have experienced mental/physical trauma and abuse.
My therapy style is trauma informed and patient centered; non-judgmental and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach is an eclectic mix of trauma informed, cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Shannahan-Sturgon is the most helpful therapist I’ve had in years (I’ve gone through three in the last year). She listens carefully and asks questions to get me thinking about my behaviors and reactions to situations to help me cope with and heal my CPTSD (which she has helped me reframe as PTSR (“response” as opposed to “disorder”)). Always kind and never judgmental, she is truly an advocate for me.

Working online with Dr. Shannahan-Sturgon has been great. She is a very caring therapist, and seeing her by video has been very convenient. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
