About me

The challenges facing youth today are complex and have the potential to devastate lives and derail futures. The treatment for these challenges does not have to be so complex and long-term. My overall goal is to provide teens with life changing tools that will not only see them through their youth, but will carry them throughout their lives.
My first goal is to provide an environment where your teen can feel safe and know that they are respected and listened to. In this, less reactive state of mind, solutions of problems are found and we can begin teaching how their perception of reality is created from the inside out. This “inside out” understanding allows them the very nature and process of thought. They learn how it is that we create our own thinking. As they begin to see that the internal constraints they experience or simple creations of their own thinking, they now see the connection between thought and their experience in life .
My experience working with teens includes working for four years with juveniles from ages 13-18 in an Intensive Out-patient Program. In this program I learned how to educate young people on the mental health benefits and well-being found through the learning of the principles that make up human psychological functioning, mind, thought, and consciousness. We thought them and their families that well-being is always there for us. We are not “broken”, but most people find themselves “stuck” at some point in their lives.
This program was focused to treatment facility that struggled with the affects of physical abuse, addiction, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, insomnia, and trauma. The journey was both personally and professionally rewarding.
I look forward to working with your teen and helping then meet and exceed their life goals.

Dr. S and I get along well as we are same age, similar tastes, etc. I find her practical with my everyday questions and challenges as I'm not super into all the theory of psychology - just want to get through things doing my best. She also offers lots of advice on keeping brain, body, mood healthy. Plus I like having the texting as it feels like I can get through tough moments by pinging her and she responds quickly.

I finally gained the courage and motivation to get into therapy, and I'm thankful I took the leap. I was going through abandonment and attachment issues, as well as anxiety, and Shannon was able to pinpoint the root causes of those struggles as well as provide me realistic ways to rise above those situations. After a few months, I can genuinely say I reached my therapy goals, and I am grateful for Shannon's leading and guidance for helping me through my inner turmoil.

Shannon is an amazing human and a wonderful therapist. I was afraid to start therapy for years because I thought the therapist would want to dig up my past and make me talk about all of my painful trauma. Shannon is the opposite of that! She reminds you that you a VICTOR not a VICTIM! She is so encouraging, you can tell she cares about her clients and really wants us to succeed and have peace in our minds. She is very easy to talk to and extremely knowledgeable. I leave our sessions feeling heard, validated, and motivated to reach my full potential. She understands the importance of teaching us self care, self preservation, and healthy ways to enrich our entire beings. She truly feels like an ally!

Written on Nov 04, 2022 after therapy with Shannon for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, and adhd

i have been in and out of therapy since the age of 16. i was generally dismissed due to my age. i’m bipolar. i’m rapid cycling bipolar with impaired execution function, i have body dysmorphia and an eating disorder. at age eight i came up with the idea of punishment clothes. i i would things that press against my body uncomfortably to remind me not to eat. i can list more lists.

with shannon i feel that there’s hope, and that may just may be the most difficult thing for me to feel.

with shannon feel that i may just find the beauty in the brain that has always made me feel shame.

thank you, shannon

Shannon is great! She's a good therapist, but more importantly, has the right balance of professional/personal experience, simple yet profound philosophy, and a straightforwardness that I hadn't found in previous therapists. She doesn't shy away or miss anything. She doesn't overwhelm by being rushed or distracted, nor underwhelm by saying nothing at all. She's helped me make more progress in a week than I had in years, getting right to the heart of my issues with a few simple exercises. Really glad I'm getting to work with her.
