My Approach to Helping
My life experiences equip me to deal with a variety of issues that are faced by clients.
Shannon Sauls is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC)who has experience working with adults, adolescents, and families seeking support to overcome trauma, anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief, parental challenges, anger, self-esteem issues, codependency, and other challenges that arise in life. Shannon completed her Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology at North Carolina State University and her Master of Arts (MA) in Professional Counseling at Liberty University. She utilizes a collaborative and holistic approach to helping individuals overcome their challenges because they’re the experts on their lives. Shannon’s life experiences make her relatable to a variety of issues faced by her clients. She uses cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, mindfulness, S.M.A.R.T goal setting, and psychotherapy techniques, to sit with her clients in their struggles, offering them comfort and support to help them overcome the challenges they are facing. Shannon is passionate about assisting clients with learning the skills needed to reach their goals and be successful in life, as they define it. She believes in creating a safe, judgment-free environment filled with compassion and empathy, where individuals are free to openly discuss their experiences and become the best version of themselves, as they see fit. Shannon believes that experiences and challenges are unique to individuals, and so too should be the therapeutic approach she uses. We all need someone to believe in us, especially when we do not believe in ourselves.
