Shannon is amazing. I never was open to therapy. However, after speaking to Shannon she has really helped me a lot. She is always checking in on me and always available when I need to speak to her. She provides me with great feedback and advice. I am great til for her she has really helped me out especially now that I am a new mom she really has provided me with really great advice.

I have been in therapy before and haven’t had this experience. She is very hands on, listens to me and also talks to me which is nice. I always look forward to my sessions with her.
