I have a strong background in working with children and teens. I have worked with children in foster care system and provided individual one on one therapy. During my years of experience I have learned that Teens also struggle with issues just as adults, teens face issues such as school stress, teen violence, bullying, the loss of a relationship, teen relationships addiction and peer pressure. I practice to challenge teens and families to work together on building trust, communication, and working through the therapy process.

She is a good listener and we enjoyed her as a counselor.
I made a mistake she responds in a timely manner. She is great!! Each week I look forward to counseling!
Shanel has the best way of giving me an outside perspective of myself that I need and also steering me in a new direction in the sneakiest way (LOL). I still feel I have a long way to go, but just about two months and I am more focused on who I am, instead of so wrapped up in other people and their emotions. I really appreciate the guidance I’ve gotten from Shanel.
I’m so grateful for the time spent with Shanel. Her expertise, points of view and life’s experiences has helped change me for the better. Getting counseling has been the best thing for myself and my family. Highly recommend it.
Talking to Shanel and working through my issues have really helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel. She's helped me recognize my triggers and taught me how to set healthy boundaries. I FEEL different after our sessions; happier, more hopeful and most importantly UNDERSTOOD
The minute Shanel smiled I felt a connection. She listens to me and has made me think deeply In to my thoughts. I have recommended her to a friend. I believe that she will help me get to where I need to focus on and be. Very glad I was matched with her.
Amazing counselor that listens and gives helpful feedback. Goal oriented and focused on helping you with your concerns. I truly appreciate her feedback my anxiety has gone down.
She has been a blessing.
Shanel is great! She listens and offers good advice. I appreciate how she takes things one step at a time before confronting an issue. I would recommend Shanel to anyone needing someone to talk to or looking for advice.
She's great and seems to be very knowledgable in what she's doing.
She is a great listener and understands me very well. She's very respectful about cultural differences which allows me to better communicate my concerns.
Shanel is an excellent counselor! She has helped me discuss my worries and has rescued me from many’s a panic attacks’. An excellent speaker and listener. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs reassurance or peace of mind from their own negative thoughts.
