Shannon Hargrave, LMHC Providing Online Counseling

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. My  journey first started in 2006 as a Youth Director at a church and  realized that the teens and parents I ministered to needed more help than  what my education and experience were so I went back to get my Master’s  degree from Palm Beach Atlantic University. During that time I also  gained experience working with teen girls in the areas of conflict  resolution, anger management, substance abuse, and low self-esteem.

I continued my counseling journey by doing intensive in-home  counseling for families with youth at risk of being placed out of the  home or who had just been placed back into the family home. I have also  worked with parents that have substance abuse issues that resulted in  DCF involvement and helped them overcome their addictions to become  reunited with their children. 

I have spent the past 5 years working in home, in schools,  Private Practice and residential mental health programs.  I have helped both adults, teens, children, families, and couples find hope and healing from a variety of different disorders and stressors.  

I have spent two years of my life living overseas. One year living in  England where I helped develop a drug education program for high school  students that we taught in the schools around Liverpool. The second  year I spent 11 months in 11 different countries doing a wide array of  mission work such as teaching English, farming, camps for kids, working  with homeless populations and encouraging missionaries.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Communication from Flagler  College in 2004 and my Master’s of Science in Counseling Psychology from  Palm Beach Atlantic University in 2008.

I am a DBT trained Therapist.  I also utilize CBT and TF-CBT.  I love to individualize my sessions to my clients personalities, problems, and needs.  I also use art and play therapy techniques with kids and teens.
