Shannon (she/her) came into this field, as many mental health professionals do, in response to her own inner demons and trauma. She has a passion for women’s issues, the queer population, and folx affected by sexual trauma and domestic violence. She is a single mom with two small kids, two cats, and a new puppy, so needless to say she understands the strain of trying to balance a busy life. Her approach to therapy is grounded in CBT and feminist therapy, with a few sprinkles of radical acceptance and dark humor. She is also a firm believer that her client is the expert on their own life, and she is happy to adjust her styles and/or make more appropriate referrals when she is not the right fit.
