I have only been on here for a few weeks but I love having an encouraging human to go to when I’m overwhelmed. I feel like most people just need to be heard in a safe place/not judged and that’s definitely what I have gotten here with Shannon so far.

More about me
Years in Practice: 8
I am a licensed professional counselor in Virginia and have approximately 8 years of experience in providing mental health services in multiple environments. I have had the opportunity to work in private practice, two university counseling centers, and crisis services at a community service board. I graduated in May of 2012 with a master’s degree in Professional Counseling and am currently enrolled in a doctoral program in Counselor Education and Supervision at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, stress, life changes, personal growth, and family of origin issues.
I strongly believe that every individual is different and has different needs in counseling. Since the counselor/client relationship is at the center of effective therapy, finding a counselor who is a good fit for you is essential!
Through a strengths-based and solution-focused lens, I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients in identifying strengths and developing treatment plans that accomplish their goals. My approach to therapy is client-centered; clients are the experts on their lives and determine the direction and depth of therapy. I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to challenge defeating thinking patterns and principles of mindfulness to bring nonjudgmental awareness of one's physical, mental, and emotional condition in the present moment. Also, motivational interviewing may be used to assess the client’s readiness for change and to address any hesitations that may be present.
I have a passion for helping people take steps toward growth, healing, and wholeness and would value the opportunity to come alongside you in your journey! I look forward to working with you!
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
