About Me

Hi!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Mississippi with over 6 years of experience. I graduated from William Carey University with a Bachelor's degree in psychology in 2011. In 2014 I received my Masters degree in science at the same university. I've worked with families and individuals to support them in improving their overall quality of life. I have supported clients who experience a wide range of emotional and behavior issues including depression, anxiety, communication problems, relationship issues, ADHD, and parenting issues. I've also offered support to those who have been impacted by childhood trauma and/or physical and emotional abuse.

My counseling style is compassionate and interactive. I believe in extending unconditional positive regard to everyone. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and client center counseling. We will customize a treatment plan that is unique to you and your specific needs.

I'm proud of you for taking steps to become happy, healthy, and whole. Please be kind to yourself because it takes courage to seek out the mental health support you feel that you need. When you're ready to take those next steps in your healing journey, I'm here for you.

Peace and Love!

Shania has helped me find a steady, safe place for myself in what is probably one of the most difficult chapters of my life. It's not a great over exaggeration to say I owe my wellbeing to her work. An essential, critical healthcare provider from an important service.

Shania has been a wonderful counsellor so far! I have had trouble connecting with counsellors in the past but with Shania conversations are so easy and she is extremely accepting and respectful of my concerns. I have learned so much and I feel as though my mental health has improved a lot since starting counselling with her. I would recommend Shania to anyone because she really is supportive of any issues you might have.
