I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Texas. I have over 10 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide variety of needs including depression, anxiety, life changes, career challenges and children/adolescent issues.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and brief solution-based therapies. These approaches work to improve life situations quickly and help develop coping skills and knowledge that can be used for future challenges.
Life can be hard. I can help give you tools to life your best life. I'm looking forward to going on this journey with you!

Shannon has already been lots of help in the short time we have communicated. I'm already feeling better about some issues I've been dealing with.
Shannon creates wonderful space for me to feel and be. I've been in contact with several counselors over the past year and haven't been feeling any different. It's so painfully hard to be open with a complete stranger, handing over your embarrassing thoughts and constant-changing emotions. Being exposed is scary. Taking off work and driving for a one-hour pressure session has made my anxiety worse. But with Shannon, I feel deeply comforted by her reaching out and as I mentioned before, she creates a safe and explorative space for me. She is wise and I sense how compassionate she is. To a person, petrified of being alone and struggling with feelings of shame, having someone like Shannon (and that could only be Shannon) helps me sleep at night and show up in the world.
Shannon is a wonderful counselor and provides timely and helpful exercises and advice. I have enjoyed my interactions with Shannon and look forward working together it the upcoming months.
