About me

Hello!!! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Mississippi as well a National Certified Counselor with over 13 years experience in providing individual, family and group counseling. I have experience working with clients ages 3 to adulthood with a multitude of presenting issues such as developmental delays, trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, loss, anger management, life changes, self esteem and identify issues as well as relationship and family issues. I have also worked in many different counseling settings and have experience working with culturally diverse clients.
My counseling style is warm, and emphatic, it is influenced by Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). My approach combines client centered therapy and structured family therapy along with goal oriented, and solution focused therapy to highlight ones strengths to help my client become the best version of themselves and do so authentically. I believe everyone is unique and should have a unique counseling experience tailored to them where they can work through life’s challenges. You are the expert on your life, I am simply here to encourage, and support you from a respectful and nonjudgmental perspective.
I have worked with teens and adolescents for more than 12 years, I have worked with many different issues that teens face such as self esteem, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, loss, identity concerns, as well as autism, ADHD, those with dual diagnosis, and other issues. I have attended several IEP meetings and worked with you returning home from inpatient care. I have worked as a mentor to young girls and athletes in general as I was a high school and college athlete. I also have experience working with youth in foster care, in CPS custody and those involved in the Juvenile Justice System.
I hope you will allow me to be your therapist to help you and your teen work through the things you have going on. I am eager to help you and your teen achieve the goals you have determined that are most important to you.
It takes courage to reach out and I am here to provide you with the safe space you need to be vulnerable and to begin to heal.

Shannon is a great therapist and really listens to my concerns. It’s been about a year now and she has provided actionable steps for obstacles I have dealt with my self confidence, my family and general outlook. It’s easy to talk to her and feel seen/heard at a flexible schedule with my work.

Written on Sep 07, 2022 after therapy with Shannon for 1 year and 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

I've been working with Shannon for over a year now. Shannon has helped me so much with learning to navigate depression, the consequences and symptoms of it, I truly don't know where to begin. She is able to connect with you on a human level, while guiding you to unknot your thoughts/feelings so you process things more logically. She has given me practical steps to manage all different situations, guidance to process things better mentally and emotionally, advice and tools now to to learn to build back my confidence and make better decisions in order to create long lasting habits. I feel I am getting there. I truly know that I wouldn't have been able to overcome dozens of situations if it wasnt for the work Ive been doing with Shannon. I truly appreciate what she does and I always talk about teencounseling.com because of my work with her! So internally grateful I got matched with her <3

She’s awesome!

Written on Jul 25, 2021 after therapy with Shannon for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and bipolar disorder

Shannon seems like a lovely person and most importantly I feel incredibly comfortable talking to her. We are just getting started but I have already found our chats very useful. I look forward to how we continue in the future.
To get the most out of teencounseling.com, I would like to use the messaging more in between our weekly call, but our time difference doesn't match up well. Still I will continue to use the journalling section and as we move forward hope to get more advice or goals for the days I struggle.

Thanks, Shannon!

Shannon is very generous and understanding. She understands even getting to therapy is hard and doesn’t put you down for that. She is extremely insightful and thought evoking even after just one session. She truly cares and it shows by the mid week messages. She is truly here to listen and is extremely not judgemental.
