About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker licensed in Texas with over 3 years of experience working as a social worker and therapist. I have worked with the various populations to include older adults, adults, veterans, adolescents, and incarcerated individuals. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse; as well as clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and parenting problems.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and solution-focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes strength and self-determination to seek help and assistance with finding greater happiness in your life. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Shonda is amazing. I’ve never been to therapy but she’s so supportive and helpful. She’s always willing to be available and checks in. She’s very knowledgeable and I’m very comfortable opening up to her.

Shonda has been so lovely and understanding. This was my first experience with therapy and I was surprised to find how much each session helped. Would definitely recommend her to anyone else looking for a therapist!

Shonda has been wonderful in helping me deal with childhood problems that followed me into adulthood. She's very respectful and has helped me lift this huge weight off of my shoulders, thanks to Shonda I am finally getting my happiness back.

She is a great counsellor, I resonated very much with her approach and she managed to quickly understand my issues and bring up very good strategies to overcome them. She is very professional, human centric and capable of offering a great support. I recommend her by all means.

Work with me!
