A majority of my experience includes working with children, teen , and transitional age youth (age 16-26 years old).
My name is Shannon Walker and I began providing therapeutic services out of the calling to help those who truly want to heal. By taking a holistic approach to traditional therapy, I have come to discover that healing comes from the desire to change...because staying stagnant is no longer an option. I want to help you help yourself. If you are someone who likes a direct approach to understanding, connection, and communication, set up a free consultation and I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Sometimes life becomes overwhelming. Sometimes, tragedies and traumas mercilessly take their toll on us and leave us faced with the responsibility to pursue healing. I can be there for you - the person struggling to get out from under the cloud of stress, anxiety, depression, or feeling like you just aren't "good enough." I can be there for the parent who is struggling to manage or the child/ teen who has already endured scary and troubling challenges.

My name is Kristina and I am a Clinical Social worker. We all strive for connection no matter what that looks like. In my practice, I work with couples, families and teens who are having a hard time with these connections. That might look like deepening your connection with your partner or in your marriage, navigating conflict, and building shared meaning. For a teenager , you might be struggling to connect to who you are and how you relate to your friends and family. For family members of your teen , you want to connect with your child while still guiding them in making healthy choices.

Parents gain insight about developmental stages their teen is currently in, gaining the ability to connect and support the teen in the way that fits each individual child.
TEENS and YOUNG ADULTS are uniquely faced with mounting pressure about who they are, what they will become, as well peer and romantic relationships. All of this before they have a solid foundation of who they are. These significant life transitions can feel overwhelming and stressful, while this is typical it doesn't make it easy. Often motivation feels just out of reach no matter how much you want the change to occur. In my work with young adults and their families my goal is to be a support in sorting out the next step, identifying attainable goals and finding clarity to moving forward.

I am also experienced in treating adolescent trauma.
Vulnerability researcher and storyteller Brené Brown stated once that authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we are supposed to be, and instead, embracing who we are. Do you feel insecure, lost, or helpless? Do you ever feel immense pressure to be someone that you are not? Do you feel depressed or anxious about life’s journey or had a loss? Do you find yourself dwelling on the past or the future, preventing you from truly living a joyous life? Have you experienced trauma or loss and are struggling to move forward? I will help you understand yourself better so you can live a peaceful and happier life.

Taking the first step towards emotional healing can be difficult as life is full of ups and downs and sometimes we need a little help along the way. Have you been feeling anxious, depressed, hopeless, or stuck? Are you experiencing relationship issues or not sure of which direction to go in your relationship? Are you feeling disconnected from your friends/ family or yourself? Do you need help trying to understand your thoughts and feelings? Coming to therapy can be difficult and scary, but taking the first step is the most important and you will not be alone.

Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

Are you feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, unsettled, or unbalanced with life, in relationships, or even at work? Are you struggling to get better, But it feels that no matter how much you try, things seem to remain the same; you can’t seem to move forward. Have you found yourself asking: “why me? Am I the problem? Is it my past? My family? Why am I feeling this way? Will it ever end? Is there a way out?... It would be great to find peace. It would be great to “unload” the emotional “hurt,” be heard, and find answers and options to inner peace. You are not alone, and there is “hope” for happiness, Let’s find it together!

Parents dream of supporting their children as they develop and pursue their dreams. Many times parents can help them with the daily decisions and encourage them to develop habits that will shape their character in order to ready them for their future living these dreams. However, when problematic behaviors or when a learning/cognitive disability poses a threat to shatter future dreams, an expert who understands behaviors and the school environment can be key in providing a path to keep those dreams alive.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
