Sohna Shook

(LCPC, LAC, RPT)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Licensed Addictions Counselor, and Registered Play Therapist in the state of Kansas. I have been licensed and working since 2010. I've worked extensively with adults and adolescents managing a variety of issues: trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, self-esteem issues, anger issues, relationship problems, issues around identity, problems with sex and sexuality, work and career issues, social problems, and others. Basically, if you can identify it as an issue, I've probably treated it.

My goal is to normalize the idea of having mental health issues, and empowering those who struggle. Or, as I generally put it, "I'm not ok. You're not ok. And that's ok."

My style is warm and supportive, but I will push you when I feel you're ready to be pushed. My goal is to help you meet your goals, and I'll push you to do what you've identified you want to do. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, family systems theory, contextual therapy, and interpersonal therapy as the guiding forces of my practice, but there are bits and pieces of others as well. I will pull from whatever I can to help you achieve your goals.

Making the choice to start therapy and begin working on yourself is not an easy choice to make.

Congratulations on taking this first step! I look forward to working with you.

She is an excellent therapist! She listens to my problem and actually let me vent. I feel very comfortable opening up to her.
