Shannon earned a Master of Education in Counseling and Development from George Mason University and a Post Masters Certificate in Professional Counseling with a focus on Marriage and Family Therapy from Grand Canyon University. Shannon is a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor (LGPC) and proudly also earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Polymer and Fiber Engineering from Georgia Tech.
Shannon enjoys working from a strengths-based and goal-focused perspective, helping clients leverage their natural gifts while learning constructive tools for coping with present and future challenges. Shannon’s communication style is down-to-earth and empathic, asking clients thoughtful questions that encourage meaningful self-reflection. She incorporates cultural sensitivity and an awareness of how systemic and societal factors can contribute to one's experience in the world.
Shannon does her best work when working with clients who are navigating life transitions (e.g., relationships, marriages, friendships, purpose seeking, career changes, breakups, moves), and clients who feel they are “stuck” in their ability to manage mental wellness with life’s demands. She collaborates with clients to explore past cognitive and behavioral patterns in an effort to make room for constructive patterns for the future. She works with adult individuals, couples, millennials, and adolescents.
