Shannon McBride


About Me

One of the things life has taught me is to not believe everything you think because our mind can really play tricks on us. There is hope even when you think there is none. There are solutions even when you cannot see them, because you have more power than you know.
Do you ever feel a little anxious, depressed or restless without quite knowing why? Maybe you know your role as a mom, dad, student, professional, etc. - but you don't know who YOU are. Maybe you have been through a trauma that keeps you from living life to the fullest because you just can't make peace with the past. Hang in there. If you are stubborn, that means you are strong. If you are willing to at least try something new, we just might be a great fit. On the other hand if you are not ready to be honest (with yourself or with me) or you would rather stay stuck in your story than write a new one, I may not be the therapist for you. Because my clients will tell you they find hope when once they were hopeless; they reclaim power they thought they had lost.
With an extensive background in many sides of mental health, I have seen almost everything. Between my experience and intuition, and your courage and willingness to explore, you and I will find a way forward. Carl Jung said, "I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become." Who do you choose to become? I would love to help you figure that out.

I feel like Shannon pays a lot of attention both to what I say and also how I act. She's very mindful of my time and my comfort and she is very good at being able to step back and let me guide what I need to speak about while also being good at guiding me when I need that instead. She's very genuine and attentive and pays attention not only to mental symptoms but also physical ones. She's a lot of help with resources and ideas, without being at all pushy. She has been a very good fit for me and I was able to build trust with her very quickly.
