About Me

Hi, there. I am a licensed professional counselor in both Georgia and Mississippi , and I have over 15 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, relationship issues, & motivation, self esteem, and confidence. I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in professional counseling. My experience includes service to a variety of populations in various settings to include—Department of Corrections/Juvenile Justice, inpatient/acute/outpatient/residential care to name a few. I have experience with adults, children/ adolescents in family, group, and individual care. I also have experience working from several therapy models and have found Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to be the best fit for the clients I serve. I am not rigid in my approaches, however, and enjoy a challenge, so I'm open to utilizing whichever model, tool, skill that meets the needs of my clients. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. I believe in meeting people where they are, so I am always working to be a better me. I challenge you to work with me, so I can help you be the BEST YOU, YOU CAN BE!!!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Shonna Burnett. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Written by B.R. on Jul 11, 2022 after therapy with Shonna for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and anger management

Shonna is absolutely wonderful. Very open and easy to talk to. Always willing to hear my perspective and offer her own in a respectful and understanding way. She’s helped me a great deal in this short amount of time I couldn’t have asked for a better therapist.

Work with me!
