No Bullshit Therapist

Congratulations on the start of your Mental Wellness journey. Thank you for considering me to be your guide.

 

Let's start at the beginning: I was born to do this! The gift of Counsel is a special one (no more special than yours) and as many people have said to me, "It takes a special kind of person to do what you do." I simply have a passion for serving those in need and have done so by being an active part of programs that feed the homeless, being a foster/adoptive parent, and providing emotional support and sincere care for many children who still call me "Mom".

I spent many teenage years listening to the concerns of my peers, as I seemed to be a magnet for those who needed an open ear and a closed mouth. I learned early that people want to be heard, validated, and understood. You advise... they could take it or leave it. I knew so much of the business that as the horoscope journalist on the newspaper staff, I used it to create awesomely accurate readings (this is NOT my gift.) 

I graduated Valedictorian from Francis T. Nicholls in 1990. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Louisiana State University and my Master of Arts Degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University.

 

II am currently licensed as a Professional Counselor in Louisiana as well as Texas, where I offer Mental Health therapy through TeleHealth (Virtually).

Couldn't have found Shawnnell at a better time. She has been such a great help to me in every way needed and more. She is somebody that genuinely cares about her clients and will go above and beyond to make sure they get the help they deserve.

Ms. Shawnnell is amazing! As a person she makes you feel like you have known each other forever. She makes me feel seen and heard. It's a great feeling to actually feel like you have someone in your corner cheering you on. She is great at what she does. I am so blessed to have crossed paths with her and have her to help me on my journey of healing to become a better version of myself everyday.
