"I have known Shannon since 2001 and have found her to be one of the most sincere and genuine people I have encountered in my personal and professional lives. Shannon is a stellar human being who is a wonderful advocate for those in need of counseling services, education and resource materials. Her ability to accept and respond to her work environment is indicative of her desire to be successful in whatever role she takes on"
-Leslie H. McCall (Founder & Former President, The Elisa Project)

"Before beginning counseling with Shannon, my life was utterly controlled by my eating disorder and negative body image. Writing this now, a year after our first meeting, I have newfound control of my life and have reclaimed the person that was buried under the surface for so long."
