Hello, my name is Shannon Francom, LMFT. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based out of Texas, with nearly a decade of experience working with individuals, couples, and families, with a variety of presenting concerns, such as: depression and anxiety, trauma, marriage/family/relationship issues, boundaries, parenting problems, addiction, and many more.
Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, experiences some sort of hardship, trauma, conflict, or setback at one time or another in their life. Sometimes we seem to handle these distressing situations, events, and problems with our relationships with ease, and sometimes we seem a little lost, misunderstood, or like we can't quite keep our head above water. The good news is that change and recovery is possible, and I can help! :)
I approach our therapeutic relationship with understanding, compassion, "realness," and validation. I enjoy incorporating humor into my sessions, meeting clients where they're at in their journey, and pushing them when they are ready to move forward. My approach combines emotion-focused and attachment-based therapy models, as well as structural, solution-focused, and narrative strategies, depending on the needs of each specific client.
Reaching out for support is the first step in healing, yet can also be one of the hardest. This process can feel overwhelming and difficult at times. I am happy to start this journey with you, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
- Stress, Anxiety

I also have experience in Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Coping with life changes, Coaching

Shannon is excellent. She responds and has helped me see things I have not looked at before. I would sometimes like a little quicker response but am overall thrilled.
I haven’t been doing this long but the time I have has made me optimistic about the future and I know I have a good counselor in Shannon- I can feel that she cares.
I feel extremely comfortable talking with Shannon Francom. She has a very warm personality and has been working with me to help me feel more confident in standing up for myself and improving my self esteem in all areas of life.
Shannon Francom has renewed my faith in therapy as well as in myself and my ability to grow. She listens and responds with non-judgment and compassion. She also adapts her style to fit her client’s worldview. Through many years, I’ve undergone hours of session time with at least five therapists. Shannon could very well be my last. I highly recommend her.
Shannon is encouraging and fair. I’ve really enjoyed speaking to her!
Shannon was available for phone interviews, which helped me connect better with her and it was helpful to know I was communicating with a real person. She is also a great listener and asked the questions that helped me get out of my negative thoughts.
