I have had two session with Shana so far. I felt an instant connection with her. She is an excellent listener. She does not waste time she gets right into tackling how to solve the issue at hand. She gives you worksheets and sets goals for you to work on between sessions. She has a refreshing way of looking at things. She will tell you like it is. In a good way! She is honest, real, and down to earth. I feel like I have made more progress in two sessions with Shana and better help than I did in an entire year of counseling. She is pretty amazing!

I have only been doing counselling with Shana for a few weeks, but already, I have seen a noticeable improvement. She takes the time to listen, makes really good suggestions, but also her overall positive character is just infectious.

Written by E.L. on Jul 19, 2020 after counseling with Shana for 3 weeks on issues concerning lgbt, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

After feeling in the blue for a few weeks and questioning some major life decisions, Shana got me back on track and is helping me to work on my tendency to overthink things. She recognized the issue immediately and confronted me with it. Now I get to do the most rewarding part- come to terms with it myself. Thank you Shana, for helping me get back on my feet again.

She is great but might be generic at first but that's because she doesn't know you. No therapist will know you until you open yourself up. Therapist can be the best for that but all I was looking to talk was someone who would here me with an credible opinion

Shana is amazing. She listens to all my issues without judgement and the advice she gives is excellent. Iv had two sessions with her so far and I am already seeing improvement

Written by R.A. on Jun 11, 2020 after counseling with Shana for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and adhd

With only 2 sessions, and several series of messaging back and forth, I can already see improvement in myself. Shana listens and communicates clearly so I understand exactly why I am feeling and experience the anxiety and panic attacks. With her help, I have a plan and am feeling better already. I highly recommend Shana!

Written by A.I. on May 15, 2020 after counseling with Shana for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and anger management

Shana is great! She listens and offers the best advice. I don’t think I would have gotten this far without her.

Written by R.I. on Apr 29, 2020 after counseling with Shana for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

Shana's really great. She's very compassionate, and understands me and my needs very well. I only say one word, and she can instantly tell if I need to vent, need someone to talk to me for a bit, or just need some space - and she adjusts our sessions accordingly. She's also very intellectual and socially-aware, so I enjoy talking to her about a variety of subjects. Would definitely recommend her; anyone who gets to speak to her is very lucky!

Shauna has given me more in 15 days than any counselor or doctor has given me in 25 years. I've already recommended this program to 2 of my friends. In her wisdom, she has taken brave actions that I feel sure will make a difference and change my life.

Shana is really easy to talk to and she has a way to bring in a perspective I needed and I appreciate it. It doesn’t feel like a stranger she is very relatable, she’s really cool to be honest. I normally don’t write reviews but people need to know Shana out here making a difference. The conversation can be met on different levels again she is relatable you can hear the wisdom in her articulation and methods of approach.
