“You always made me think of the future.”
Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help. Throughout my life, I've seen psychologists and psychiatrists and I always thought they were all pointless and terrible people with a college degree and a title that just made money off of people dwelling about the past. Then I met you. You really are a gem and helped me more than you know through a time when there was no one. I think understanding the past is important, but not to dwell on it. You always made me think of the future.

“Great first time ever experience.”
First I wanted to thank you for a great first time ever experience with professional therapy yesterday. The whole experience was very positive and I felt like I was talking to a friend at the same time who just happened to be a professional therapist and I would definitely highly recommend you to any of my friends male or female.

“You helped me realize my self worth.”
I just wanted to reach out and express my gratitude for you and give you an update. You helped me realize my self worth and I’m grateful that I had an unbiased outside opinion. Acting on what we talked about changed my life and has since empowered me so much in every decision.

"I didn't know where to turn."
I was recommended to Shannon by a friend and I am so lucky to have found her. She truly helped me turn my life around and I value our sessions immensely. I saw her for EMDR because I have some old childhood trauma that was affecting my marriage. Right from the initial phone call she was warm and assured me that she would help me. EMDR is tough, effective, and I have seen long-lasting changes. Shannon is a gifted therapist!
