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.

Shannon is an engaging therapist! She will inspire you to keep the self care going even outside of your weekly sessions by sending ‘tidbits’ - including literature and helpful multimedia tools. I would describe Shannon as positive, inquisitive and comforting.

Shannon is so sweet and understanding! She sends out weekly newsletter-type messages with inspirational media to check in and send a positive message which I really like. She is super understanding about cancelling/rescheduling sessions and always has a pleasant attitude!
