Therapy with Shannon

My goal as a therapist is to create an environment in which clients feel comfortable enough to investigate behavior, thoughts, and emotions that may be creating undesirable patterns. My approach to psychotherapy is based on the belief that each person has the innate ability for healing and personal growth. My role is to assist each client in their unique and individual process of discovering those abilities.

I believe therapy is a joint effort between the therapist and client that relies strongly on the relationship that is formed in the room. Much of my work focuses on fostering a relationship that allows the client to feel empowered and self-accepting. I offer frequent feedback to my clients so that we have a mutual relationship and work as a team.

While my approach to therapy is empathic, genuine, and direct, it is ultimately tailored to each client’s individual needs. I will work with you to provide the most appropriate interventions for your particular concerns and goals.

Although I have a wide array of therapy related interests, I specialize in gender variance and sexual orientation. In addition, my therapeutic focus encompasses topics that include polyamory, sexual trauma and abuse, feminine empowerment, anxiety and depression.
