My interest in Marriage and Family Therapy stems from a desire to fill a gap that was present in my own community. Having had experiences where an unbiased sounding board could have been pivotal in navigating unstable relationships, I set a path that allowed me to be the change I wanted to see. The general philosophy that anchors my practice is “building healthy relationships one story at a time.” This includes the relationship with oneself. There is no one fits all solution to a problem, or one way of getting to a place of feeling well. This in mind I aim to listen, learn, validate, and advocate for what “works” for my clients.
In session, you will discover a therapeutic style which involves an integrated approach using Emotion Focused, Solution Focused, and Narrative techniques. Mindfulness is also actively incorporated into my practice. I have experience with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Strategic Therapies as well.
I have a passion for storytelling/sharing, and using story as a vehicle to highlight clients strengths, motivations, resilience, hope, and untapped desires. I’m glad you found me...let’s talk!

Shanet Dennis's Groups

Anger Management - Virtual

Anger is a normal human emotion; however, some may view anger negatively, because it is associated with the way it makes our body feel (hot, shaky, tunnel vision, etc). When anger gets out of control and turns destructive it can destroy relationships in our personal life, work, and home. Through our anger management group we focus on recognizing frustration in its early stages, understanding anger (patterns, thoughts, triggers), work through anger, develop positive communication skills, self-awareness, and learn to let go and forgive. Start the path to better health and channel your anger to reach new goals.

More about this group

Seeking Safety - Virtual

The effects of trauma and the use of substances aren’t always linked, but can often be found in the same wheelhouse. Some who have experienced trauma fall into unhealthy ways of coping with it, while some who have overused substances may not have found healthy ways to cope with unhealed trauma. Seeking Safety is a structured treatment model that aids in identifying and implementing safe coping strategies to manage effects of trauma, limit or abstain from substance use, and help clients find links among their thoughts, actions, relationships, and internal experience.

More about this group

Caregiver Burnout Prevention - Virtual

Taking care of a dependent love one can be challenging, stressful and at times overwhelming. Many caregivers experience disruption of household routines, disruption of relatives' leisure time and career, strain on family relationships, and lessening of social support. The purpose of this group is to provide psychoeducation to assist caregivers in identifying, understanding, and coping with the challenges that come along with caring for a dependent love one, while fostering a safe environment for sharing information, resources, insight and encouragement.
