Shannon is a mother of 6 children, including 3 with Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD, and so is intimately familiar with the resources that exist—and also lack—to develop coping skills to successfully navigate society. She is also neurodivergent and is known for her kind, sensitive approach, working closely with clients to augment their strengths, enabling them to discover ways to make their lives more meaningful and authentic. She does not employ an ABA therapy method, and can counsel parents and clients on methods less likely to resulting in creating trauma. Additionally, Shannon is very empathetic to the struggles of women who have faced domestic violence, as they are also a survivor of domestic violence and childhood trauma.
