Shannon is fantastic! She makes our sessions feel very relaxed and it allows me to be really open and comfortable. In the few weeks I have been seeing Shannon I can already see a huge change, and look forward to continuing my healing journey.

I haven't had much luck with therapy for the past few years until I found Betterhelp and Shannon LaTray. She is absolutely amazing! I felt instant rapport with her, I have felt better about myself since starting therapy.

I highly recommend Shannon! When I was at my lowest she helped me all along the way. She guides and teaches with love and respect, but will also call you on the things that need work and effort. I felt safe and respected durring our sessions, and I was never rebuked or judged. She helped me overcome many trials: Bi polar depression, marital strife, poor self esteem, taking courage in home-schooling 3 kids, and improving my communication with manipulative family members. Please reach out to Shannon so she can help you find joy in your daily life.
