About Me

Are you tired of the typical run of the mill recovery program? Do you want an alternative to AA/NA directed recovery or are you looking to supplement your AA/NA recovery program? If yes then I am your match!
I am the most open minded therapist you will meet. I know how much strength and courage it takes to reach out for help because I myself was once like you. I know how it feels to reveal your vulnerabilities to a complete stranger; and I am living proof that therapy works.

My name is Shannon Gaiser MA, LPC, CAADC, CDDAP and have been a practicing therapist since 2004. I have 17 years of experience with specialties in addiction and co-occuring disorders. I am in recovery from opiate addiction and can understand the special needs of these clients. I practice using client centered, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques. I am open to alternatives to the traditional recovery programs including medication assisted treatment and medical marijuana treatment. I believe everyone's path to a better life is individual.

I have worked 9 years in inpatient/outpatient rehabs and 8 years as a private practice therapist for a suboxone doctor. I have experience with depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, bi-polar d/p, sexual abuse issues and trauma. My experiences have also lead me to work with family recovery to help promote healthy boundaries. I am available for texts, video, and voice sessions. I typically will respond to messages within 5 hours, but could be longer on weekends.

It would be my honor to start the journey with you. I will get in the trenches with you and we will find the light together. I look forward to working with you!

Shannon is a wonderful therapist. She offers a non-judgmental listening ear to your issues and helps you work through your issues.

Shannon offers me a completely safe space to talk about whatever I need to talk about. Being able to express the things I have never been able to talk about without being judged has been very freeing - allowing me to be more open with those close to me.

Shannon spent 30 minutes with me in a live text chat and kinda got to the heart of the problem quickly. I'm not fixed but I feel like if I put in the effort, I might get there with her help!
