Sheaundra O'Neil

(MA, LPC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor experienced in working with people with severe mood disorders and psychosis. I work with people to help them overcome life's obstacles. I have helped to improve peoples’ overall well – being and quality of life with in-depth knowledge of the principles, methods, and procedures for diagnosis and treatment.

I believe that a renewed mind is the key to transformational living. Change is not easy. It is in fact, sometimes necessary. Being equipped for change helps to make the transition smooth. I have supported people in discovering and living to their greatest potential in order to have the best life possible.

My counseling style is warm, compassionate, and engaging. I am a firm believer in establishing a good rapport with people and building a strong therapeutic alliance. I believe in and practice unconditional acceptance and encourage people to express themselves freely. My theoretical approach combines cognitive behavioral, person - centered, solution - focused, and gestalt therapy.

I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and certified in Texas CANS and ANSA, Illness Management and Recovery (IMR), Co-Occurring Psychiatric and Substance Use Disorders (COPSD), Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), Mental Health First Aid, and Prevention and Management of Aggressive Behaviors (PMAB).


It takes a lot of courage to reach out and ask for help. I commend you for your bravery and effort. Welcome to BetterHelp. I look forward to working with you!

Written by C.O. on Jun 10, 2021 after counseling with Sheaundra for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

She is amazing and I am so happy I found her.

Written by L.I. on May 21, 2021 after counseling with Sheaundra for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

Sheaundra is just brilliant. She has helped me over the last couple months and is always quick to identify issues and help me talk things through, even when I struggle to put words to what I'm feeling.

She is realistic about what it takes to work through and unlearn issues and never lets me get away with a victim's mentality which I really appreciate.

Really, I can't thank Sheaundra enough. I feel much better about myself than I did a few months ago and I always leave sessions ready to take on the world, even if I entered them feeling tired or sad.

Much love!

She’s ahmazzing! I appreciate the most about her that she is not just the “how does that make you feel” counselor. She will give you feedback, she guide you as far as you want to go and help you as much as you’re willing. I appreciate her honesty and patience the most! Plus she feels like I’m taking to a friend!

Sheaundra gets at the heart of my problems.

Written by A.L. on Apr 22, 2021 after counseling with Sheaundra for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and grief

I have been doing sessions with Sheaundra on a weekly basis for about 4 months now and I am so grateful to have been matched with her. She has been very understanding and helpful on all the topics we have discussed. She is constantly providing me with great advice and helpful tools. I would recommend her to anyone I know going through similar issues as I am, she is well experienced and knowledge on a wide range of topics.

When I first reached out to Sheaundra I was a broken mess of a person, and she taught me how to put myself back together again. Sheaundra will listen to you and understand your issues without babying you or letting you fall into a victim mentality. She does a good job in communicating with you about what your needs are, and how best she can help you get them filled. I honestly can't recommend her enough.

Sheaundra made me feel so comfortable expressing my anxieties and struggles right off the bat. She saw past the surface level and cut through to get to the heart of the issues. She asked the right questions to make me see that the negative thoughts in my head weren't coming from external relationships - she really helped me get out of my head, recognize negative thoughts, and implement positive habits into my routine which has been such a huge help in a short amount of time!

Written by K.A. on Mar 18, 2021 after counseling with Sheaundra for 6 months on issues concerning grief, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

This was my last session with Sheaundra. We have worked together for the last 6 months. I am eternally grateful to betterhelp for pairing me with the most kind and helpful therapist. I have grown leaps and bounds since working with Sheaundra. I now feel I have come into alignment with my true self and put to rest a lot of the demons I was fighting. I am ready to take on my life with more confidence and a sense of well-being. I highly recommend her to anyone. She is a true professional and Betterhelp lucky to have her!

From the bottom of my heart,
Kandria R.

I have worked with Sheaundra for two sessions now and I am very very grateful for her. I thought it may take a year of therapy but I have had a major transformation in my life after only two sessions . She has the ability to listen and clarify your thoughts that may seem scrambled . I feel so clear in my mind about the direction I want to go and I owe this to her . I cannot recommend Sheaundra enough .

Sheaundra is the glue that held me together this past year. I avoided therapy my whole life and signed up without many expectations. She provided a safe space where I could be vulnerable and open. She is an incredible listener and her expertise in her field makes her feedback / exercises extremely powerful tools in my day to day life. I am very grateful to have found someone so knowledgeable and willing to work through my specific concerns and battles. Would recommend 1000%
