Hello!! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Georgia for the past 14 years. My professional experience began in mental health hospitals with children and young adults who were experiencing extreme trauma and eventually a Care Manager for managed care companies. I later opened a private practice called My Caring Counseling that allowed me to have a creative platform for my clients who needed a space to feel comfortable and safe to express themselves and heal. My experience is primarily with clients who are struggling with depression symptoms, life stressors, anxiety, coping with unexpected life changes, self esteem issues, interpersonal and relationship challenges and couples who are struggling with fertility issues.
My theoretical orientation is an eclectic approach to healing and treatment. My techniques include motivational interviewing, a wholistic approach to include mindfulness techniques, movement-therapy to enhance the person’s cognitive, physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, solution-focus therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy. My style is very warm, caring and open, being attentive and listening closely to your needs. I believe we all have the power to heal ourselves and make the changes we seek within our lives and I am here to help you navigate through this process.
As a therapist from a culturally diverse background I am committed to include all culturally diverse groups of young adults, older adults and couples. I completed a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion training to ensure my therapeutic approach is tailored appropriately and includes everyone. It is important to remain aware and sensitive to the needs of my clients.
I am excited to be your therapist and help you navigate your life's journey.

I’ve had two sessions with Shirnel so far and she’s been the greatest fit for me so far. I’ve always been told that finding the right therapist can take time, which it definitely has. Shirnel has been a breath of fresh air for someone going through the struggles I’m going through. Shirnel is very welcoming, understanding and attentive and I already feel great after a few sessions. Cannot recommend enough!
Love working with Shirnel. She is a great listener and kind person. Can only recommend
My therapist is awesome, she listens and is very attentive and provides me with fun homework that will impact my life right now in a positive way
I loved working with Shirnel!! I felt that she was right for me the moment I matched with her because she was so full of energy and had amazing vibes. I have been feeling so much better and it feels like something heavy has been lifted off my chest. After having my counseling sessions with her, I have become more relaxed and happy. She's a warm person and makes you feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend her to others!
Shrinel has been really attentive to my needs. She's a great listener and actively asks questions that help zone into the parts of therapy that need attention and focus. Thank you, Shrinel for making online therapy feel comfortable.
Shirnel is the BEST! I feel so safe with her because she understands me! I have never felt so sure and secure with a therapist like I do with Shirnel.
Shirnel is so nice and my favorite therapist on this app.
