Dr. Shannon Barnes


About Me

I earned my Masters in Clinical counseling and obtained state licensure then went on to complete a doctorate degree in counseling studies. I have extensive experience with depression, anxiety, addiction, family issues, relationship issues, trauma or negative life events, self esteem and motivational issues.

I also have experience with grief counseling. My newest treatment approach is working with divorced parents with co parenting issues. I use a psychoanalytical approach with a cognitive behavioral treatment plan to assist with positive change in a person's life. I believe once a person understands the inner strength he or she has to provoke positive change, then almost all things are possible.

I am enjoying my chats with Dr. Barnes, having a forum where I can type out my feelings is therapeutic in itself, better than I thought. Her replies keep me accountable and give me a safe space for taking the time to sit and think about my feelings and behaviours in a busy schedule.
