Shannon is a great person that knows how to listen and how to provide really important insights.
I am driven to think about the solutions for my problems instead of having easy recipes and I couldn't be more grateful for that.
He always welcomes me with his wisdom and a smile and that is absolutely incredible.
I would recommend Shannon to anyone who really wants to change and improve themselves.

Thank you very much :)

First session was a little rough because my answers were short, but Dr. Williams was patient. And from our second session forward I felt comfortable opening up. Dr. Williams was understanding, and he helped me to understand my feelings a little better. I only stopped because of some adjustments I have to make on my end, but I hope to continue with Dr. Williams when I begin therapy again.

Mr. Williams challenges you to be better. He asks you to put your self in uncomfortable situations in order to get comfortable, which I greatly appreciate. Working with him, I feel like my confidence has gone up tremendously and I have found new ways to find healthier habits to feel happier.

Finding the right person to help you navigate this complicated world is not easy. From day one, Shannon understood what was triggering my mental health, and since then, I learned the essential tools for not putting my mental health in a vulnerable situation. All I can say is that thanks to him, I see things differently and can live a healthier and happy life.

Thank you Shannon!
