Shannon Waters, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Clinical Supervisor

Life is a journey, one never knows when there might be a twist that could be overwhelming. Sometimes we need someone who is unbiased to share those twists, and it takes courage to reach out for professional help.

Are you trying to navigate life living with anxiety, depression, or trauma.? Do you feel discouraged, unappreciated, or alone in your life? It is my passion to walk beside you to help you develop self-compassion, mindfulness, conflict resolution, and inner strengths and to implement the tools you need to continue to live a joy-filled life through the journeys of life.

Shannon’s Approach

I believe in an individualized approach to therapy with a lot of collaboration from you, the client. I utilize multiple theoretical approaches that fit the client’s needs; however, person-centered therapy is usually where the therapeutic relationship work begins. You are the expert in the room, and I am simply here to provide direction and therapeutic expertise as we navigate life’s challenges together.

More About Shannon Waters

As a mental health professional, I have been helping people reach their goals for over five years. I have worked with clients from 12 to over 70 years of age in various settings and counseling modalities. I have found that people need most to feel validated, heard, seen, and safe while exploring their needs, wants, desires or to share their most troublesome experiences.

I received a master’s of arts from Corban University in clinical mental health counseling. My undergraduate degree was completed at Western Oregon University in psychology and a minor in sociology.
