Dr. Shantisse Mason

(PsyD, LCPC, LCADC)

About Me

I am a dual licensed clinician with professional experience in both mental health and addictions treatment. I work with a variety of individuals including teens and young adults attempting to mange symptoms related to grief & loss, depression, anxiety and trauma. I have over 20 years of experience helping persons navigate doubt, uncertainty and conflict. I am a mother of 2 teens and have direct insight into some of the thoughts and concerns of young people today in this uncertain climate. It can be tough making the best decision. It can also be difficult trying to fit in and yet be individualized all at the same time. I can explore the journey with you. Therapy can help you find that voice and be heard. I'm open, positive and compassionate and want you to feel like your best self through the therapeutic process.

Dr. Mason has been a god send in a crazy time, she has been amazing at communicating with me and I trust her with my daughter completely. She listens to my concerns and she addresses issues I bring up as well as issues she sees from her sessions with my girl who’s attitude and self confidence have done a 180 since we began seeing her Mid COVID. We are grateful for her wisdom and genuine care.

I am so incredibly grateful for Dr. Mason; She is truly inspirational; so full of valuable insight and positive energy, while still being realistic, and a grounding force for me. She listens, encourages, but keeps me accountable, moving forward, and *growing*. I've been working with Dr. Mason for the last six months, and can genuinely say that my sessions with her have impacted my (daily) life in a truly meaningful and positive way.

I have worked with numerous therapists and I must say Dr. Mason is amazing. She has helped myself and husband learn to communicate and understand each other's concerns. It feels as if I'm talking to a close friend I've known for years. She is very empathetic, knowledgeable and professional.

Dr. Mason gives therapy that doesn't feel like work. She speaks truth and gives concrete, achievable recommendations any time you stop sharing during sessions and she really listens when you do. I love the way she puts genuine care into her inquiries and puts a purposeful focus on each session, yet she emits a relaxing and free-flowing vibe that puts you at ease. She makes it so easy to share anything troubling me and anything worth laughing about too. Truly lucky to have found her!
