Shana helped me with exactly what I needed. I told her my problems the first session and she immediately had tools and suggestions with how to help me. I was having stress issues with my children and household and after using the tools she taught me I feel I control of my life again. Thank you!
Shana has been the most open and understanding therapist I’ve had. I’ve been through very negative experiences with mental health professionals, but Shana has been a joy to work with. She gives excellent insights for what’s going on with me, as well as feedback for moving forward. I highly recommend her.
Ms. Latham offers good advice and makes me feel reassured I've made the right decision participating in therapy.
I really appreciated the time and effort that Shana put into my sessions. She made it very easy to open up about issues I had been struggling with, and helped me to not only understand the emotions that I had been feeling, but also how to move forward and develop strategies that would help me in life. Shana helped me gain a different perspective when, before I started counseling, the only perspective I could see was the one inside myself. She really took the time to listen and understand how I was feeling, and to understand where those feelings were coming from.
Shana is incredibly talented in counseling. Listening to my concerns and giving me a different way of looking at the situation, and helping me to really hear the words that I say and analyze it. Is the reality as life changing as I feel it is or is it something that I can do or not do but the world as I know it won’t collapse around me. She kindly, firmly, or sometimes with a joke or in a light hearted manner (whatever the situation deems she is in tune with) counsels me and adjusts my thinking but her message always comes through. She’s patient never overbearing or disingenuous of MY session and time. I’m so pleased that we were paired!!!!!
Shana is amazing. She takes the time to listen, allows me to voice my concerns, and always repeats back to ensure understanding. Shana also always provides great feedback and ideas for interventions for the challenges I have while also giving me the necessary framework to develop my own ways of coping.
It is with pleasure that I write this review for Shana Latham. I have PTSD and Anxiety Disorder. Shana has been instrumental in helping me through a very difficult time. Shana is very knowledgeable and experienced. I would recommend her.
Shana has helped me tremendously over the past few months. She has assisted me in changing my thought patterns and bad habits. She is very caring, a great listener and is not judgmental. It is clear how much she cares about her patients. I appreciate her and would recommend her to anyone searching for a counselor.
The issues I was struggling with were not typical. I was pleasantly surprised by Ms. Shani Latham's ability to be truly helpful by offering practical and useful suggestions to complex puzzles and choices. She was helpful in the process of problem-solving by her attentive listening and by offering relevant and creative approaches. I am pleased with her understanding of the issues and her value-added support. Thank you!
Shana was a great listener who gave great advice without being judgmental. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a counselor.
Shana is a very helpful and thoughtful counselor. Shana not only helped me work through my immediate problems but discussed a path forward so that I could find more time to enjoy myself and manage the stress and anxiety in the future. I really appreciate her counseling.
Shana was such a comforting, thoughtful, and helpful presence in my life when I felt like I was spiraling. She actively listened to my worries and concerns, I never felt judged, and at the end of each session she always gave me something on which to reflect in the coming week. I’m grateful for my time with her and can’t recommend her more highly for anyone who’s looking for a therapist/counselor.
I really feel like Shana is helping me understand things better and figure things out. My outlook on things has been vastly different since I’ve been in counseling therefore improving my personal relationships. I have already told several friends about this and would recommend this to anyone. Phone therapy has not only been convenient for me but effective
Shana is lovely. I had a great time speaking with her and she really helped me with stress.
So incredibly helpful. She gives me tools and things that I can practice to make sure my life runs smoothly.
Very useful counseling including a variety of instruments to cope with different issues. I highly recommend it!
I have only had 2 session with Shana so far, but she has already helped talk me through so much. Her reflections and feedback during conversation are thoughtful and insightful, as she especially helps me understand different perspectives. I truly appreciate working with her.
Shana was very helpful. She was ready to talk about anything that needed to be talked about and worked with me on a broad range of subjects.
Shana session was my first counseling experience, and it work outed very well for me. As she was able to determine and resolve most of my concerns and issues. I'm very satisfied with her work and all wisdom shared to me. There's so much more issue I need to be figuring out through bigger concerns.
Thank you for your mentoring of my anxiety, depression and pain. This is all I need at the moment. I appreciated your time Shana. Best session I've ever had.
Shana has been really supportive in helping me get through a difficult and traumatic time.
