I always feel like I have a safe space while doing my virtual therapy. Katie makes it feel like I am talking with a best friend while also achieving my goals and expectations. I could not imagine doing therapy anywhere else.

Shannon is truly amazing, and I can’t speak highly enough of her. She’s changed my life for the better. I’ve gone through over 20 therapists in my lifetime and none made it past 6 months. Shannon has been with me for over a year now, and I hope I never stop having her in my life.

She is beyond amazing to my daughter and I. My daughter absolutely loves her and looks forward to seeing her. So do I. I would highly recommend her. She has helped me fight my battles and PTSD and treats me like a human being.
