About Me

Hello! Seeking help is often very hard. Everyone needs support at some point and it takes a lot of courage to step out. I respect those who do so a great deal! Thank you for taking the time to consider me as a helper. While it is important to understand about my credentials and approach to therapy, it is also important that you know I respect you and I will be very careful about our counseling relationship. Your health and growth are important to me.

I have had successful experience in addressing trauma, foster/adoption-related issues, anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, family crisis, and other areas of practice.

I have practiced as a counselor since graduating with my Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Harding University in 2001. I am currently licensed in Arkansas, Arizona, Nevada, Oklahoma, and Texas. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families in residential and outpatient settings.

I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and principles of Emotion Focused Therapy, all with an overarching Systemic perspective, when working with clients. In the online setting, I will tend to also use some Solution-Focused techniques as well.

Whether you chose to work with me or another therapist, I hope you do find what works for you. I believe there is always hope, no matter how small it seems. I know that you have more tools than you feel like you do. I'd love to have the opportunity to help you dig in and find it in your life!

Written by A.L. on May 13, 2020 after counseling with Shiann for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, self esteem, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

I have only had a few sessions with Shiann, but feel like she has gotten me to open up, acknowledge, and confront a lot of my fears, trauma, and is helping me learn to forgive, and work towards healing. I feel very hopeful that she will provide me with the skills and help I need.

She’s awesome!

Written by P.E. on Jan 20, 2020 after counseling with Shiann for 4 weeks

Shiann is very good at listening "between the lines." She hears what you are saying explicitly, but is often able to tease out some underlying concerns or emotions that are the troubling factors one is experiencing. I have had only four sessions with her so far, but they are helpful and I anticipate that they will become even more helpful as she gets to know me better.

Shiann is very clear and kind.

Shiann is very understanding and always provides me with support and offers questions which provoke me to answer my own concerns. I always look forward to hearing from her as I know she will offer me guidance to be more self-reliant in the future, increasing my own personal self awareness.

One session with Shiann can redirect my thoughts and emotions in a completely new direction. She is honest and really points you where you need to go.

Betterhelp is exactly what I needed to fit into my life. And it bridges the gap with traditional therapy by allowing questions answers and feedback between sessions. Shiann has been great as a listener and an honest reflection of my thoughts and feelings. She is helping me work through the things that are important to me.

Shiann Metheny is a great counselor. She makes me see things in myself that I didn’t even see. She tells me things from a perspective I would have never thought of. I appreciate her and everything she has already done for me. She responds in a timely manner and is always looking for my best interest.
