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 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

She is phenomenal and a great listener. And after listening she gives great insight. I look forward to our conversations. I wish I’d met her years ago.

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 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.
