My name is Shannon and I have been practicing as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 9 years. I attended New Mexico Highlands University where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work in 2011 and my Master’s degree in Social Work with a Clinical Concentration in 2012. I am trained in attachment therapy and have worked in many different settings providing therapy to individuals and families. Some areas include relationships, anxiety, depression, attachment, stress, and life changes to name a few. I work from a systems, strengths-based perspective and believe that building a trusting relationship is key to the client success. I always meet my clients where they are at; rather than where I think they should be. I am passionate about helping others reach their goals and look forward to helping you reach yours! I have chosen BetterHelp because of the various ways that clients can access their therapy. I respect the vulnerability it takes to reach out for whatever your needs are and love that there is an alternative platform to do this. I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Shannon Baldonado. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Shannon is compassionate and wise, and she seemed to grasp the roots of my problems quite quickly after one conversation. She gave practical advice and homework, and after working with her I came away with a better understanding of myself and my difficult feelings. Thanks Shannon!
Shannon really listens. Her suggestions are clear and really helpful
Shannon is flexible in her approach to the issues I present helping me look at them from various angles and points of view. She respects my opinion and efforts at change and the person with whom I have issues. Her objectivity is appreciated. She is encouraging and recognizes progress. I have recommended both her and BetterHelp.
Very friendly, supportive, and careing.
She has been very helpful! She is helping me gain confidence in myself as I overcome my troubles in my past and daily life.
Very helpful, understanding, and patient, Shannon does not push for more than I am ready to give. She helps in the ways that are most beneficial for my personal experience without minimizing what I tell her.
Shannon is an amazing counselor. She listens to what I have to say and always makes me see the good progress I am making and helps me stay on track. I love betterhelp's platform where we can chat or she can send worksheets etc between sessions. I have had counseling before but this by far is my favorite method and counselor.
I have always been skeptical about therapy. After my first session with Shannon, I am fully convinced therapy is exactly what I need to better myself.
Shannon has already been a massive support to me in a time of imminent crisis, and she's able to provide me with the skills and advice to take everything in my life in stride. She is understanding, caring, and an intentional listener and she wants the best for YOU and you can feel it.
She is a great person and does her job well.
