My Approach to Helping
Shannon Gutschick is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) with over 10 years of experience in the mental health field. She truly enjoys people and feels strongly about assisting others. She specializes in treating anxiety, stress, undeveloped coping skills, low self-esteem, life transitions, relationship issues, and trauma. Shannon received a Master's degree in Licensed Professional Counseling from Liberty University. She uses a blended treatment approach, valuing different therapeutic modalities. These approaches include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Humanistic/Rogerian approaches, person-centered therapy (PCT), motivational interviewing, and more. Shannon understands that life can be hard and just having someone to discuss things with can make it easier. She also believes that having someone to challenge you will expedite change and growth. The therapeutic relationship is a partnership in which the clinician and the client navigate through the clients individual life challenges together. Shannon won't shy away from whatever those challenges are. She is warm, engaging and tries her hardest to make you feel comfortable from the very first session. If you are looking for the type of therapist that will listen to you, but also give you honest feedback and challenge you, please make an appointment with Shannon today.
