About

I hold the following Master’s degrees: Psychology, which focuses on individuals; Marriage and Family Therapy, which emphasizes relational dynamics and family systems; Intercultural Studies, which recognizes the importance of cultural milieu; and Theology, which examines the human condition in the greater context of our humanity and the symbols and stories that inform and help shape a sense of transcendent meaning and purpose.

I have trained in somatically-oriented psychotherapies and the study of neurophysiology, which recognize that the human person doesn’t merely inhabit their body, they are their body. I hold a Master's degree in Theology as we are designed with the purpose of living in relationship with God and others

This combined anthropology has led me to developing an integrated, holistic approach to how I see and understand the clients I work with, as well as how I conceptualize the individual. I strive to cultivate my appreciation of each unique person in their pursuit of their authentic self in thriving relationships. To me, this is not just a goal of coaching; it is also our existential purpose and calling as human beings.

I integrate an individual’s body, mind, and spirit/spirituality because sometimes we are stuck in one or all of these vital areas of our experience. I have received certifications and training in several modalities and practices that support an integrated approach to wellness.

My Christian Faith and My Professional Practice

Frederick Buechner said:

The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet

For me, that place is a compassionate presence with others.

I am a Christian and I am married to a Presbyterian pastor. All my education- to include a BA, 4 MA and a nearly completed PhD- are from Christian and accredited universities.

MA, SEP, COACH
I have an enthusiasm for life and I am passionate about participating in authentic human relationship. I am a USMC Veteran and firefighter with over 10 years of training and experience helping people do better at life. This builds on 20 years working with trauma in varying capacities.

I am a mom of four active boys and I manage life with my husband of 15 years. My faith informs how I see the world and allows me to love those who are, often times, harder to like.

MA, LMFT, COACH
My name is Shannon Walker and I am here to guide you through life’s most complex and difficult matters. I truly care about my clients’ well-being and guarantee top of the line coaching services catered to your needs.

I currently have a masters degree in both Marriage and Family Therapy as well as Clinical Psychology. Currently, I am pursuing my doctorate in Clinical Psychology, which I will obtain in 2021. From providing in-home behavioral intervention to providing individual, family and couple coaching, I have developed a number of specialized, integrated skills that I believe can be of service to those willing to develop new perspectives about their current situation. My approach tends to focus on the emotional components that drive our decision-making and interpretation of our experiences.
