Shannon Thomas, LCSW-S

As the owner and lead therapist of Southlake Christian Counseling (SCC) it is my greatest desire that clients find a place where they can feel comfortable talking about anything and everything that is going on in their lives. It is very easy to hide our real feelings, even from those closest to us.

I work with a variety of therapy topics and focus on individual growth and improving interpersonal relationships. Those relationships can be marital, dating, families, friendships or the workplace.

As a trauma-informed therapist, my area of specialty is recovery from psychological abuse. I write extensively on the topic as a media content expert (www.shannonthomas.com/press). My best-selling book, Healing from Hidden Abuse: A Journey Through the Stages of Recovery from Psychological Abuse was ranked #1 Self-Help (Abuse) and #1 Hot New Release Self-Help (Abuse) on Amazon.com.

I began working with families in 2000, started in private practice counseling in 2007, and opened Southlake Christian Counseling in 2009. I have a Bachelors degree in Legal Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz and I received my Master of Social Work degree from San Jose State University. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Supervisor for post-graduate interns working towards their LCSW licensure. I am also a Field Instructor within the Master of Social Work program at Texas Christian University (TCU).

Meagan Reid, LMSW

Meagan Reid, LMSW

As a therapist, I enjoy working with adolescents, young adults, and married couples. Every individual has unique strengths and perspectives. I strive to enhance and improve upon those strengths by using creative techniques such as music, art, and other interests of my clients. I believe that everyone has the capacity to grow and heal in their own way, at their own pace. I specialize in trauma recovery with clients who are working through past or present experiences. 

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker under supervision to complete my graduate level hours to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my Master’s degree in social work in 2015 from Texas Christian University.

Jasmyn Jones, LPC-I

Jasmyn Jones, LPC-Intern

I have a passion for empowering people and walking with them through the challenges that life can bring.  I work with a variety of different issues, including but not limited to emotional/physical abuse, trauma, anxiety, low self-esteem, and depression. I strongly believe that each individual person is special and I use encouragement to help people find their inner strength. I enjoy collaborating with clients to develop treatment goals that will help them grow individually and improve their relationships.

I am qualified by the state of Texas as a Licensed Professional Counselor – Intern, meaning that I am currently earning my post-graduate clinical hours under supervision. I am supervised by both SCC Owner/Lead Therapist, Shannon Thomas LCSW-S, as well as Lois Vaillancourt LPC-S. The need for two supervisors is due to the requirement of being clinically supervised by a common license holder. In 2015 I received my Masters in Counseling and Development from Texas Woman’s University and I also hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Baylor University.

Monica Dane, Mentor Coach

Monica Dane, Certified Life Coach

As a Master’s level vocal instructor and Certified Life Coach, I blend my two professional loves by guiding my coaching clients through the process of finding their unique voices to share with the world around them. Coaching clients are encouraged to use their voices to speak up about their feelings, life experiences, and future hopes. I believe in the power of resisting the trap of comparison, and embracing our individual beauty.

As a Certified Life Coach, I specialize in recovery from psychological/emotional abuse, co-dependency recovery, grief/loss and life transitions. Relationship wounds can come in many forms and my coaching focus includes working with clients who are rebuilding after spousal financial abuse.

I work exclusively with distance clients by phone and online through video conferencing.  There is immense healing available in finding our voice, sharing our story with others, and walking through the steps towards full restoration.

Ginny Dodson, Mentor Coach

As a Mentor Coach with Southlake Christian Counseling, I bring over 15 years of experience working with women in all different stages of life. I love to see my clients walk away from the lies they’ve believed into the freedom and wholeness that comes from believing the truth about who they are and who God is.

My areas of specialty include recovery from abuse and being a group leader for the best-selling book, Healing from Hidden Abuse. I help coaching clients walk through the six stages of recovery outlined in the book and assist them in finding lasting healing.

I have spent three decades in Christian ministry and church culture. This history uniquely equips me to work with clients who are seeking wholeness after spiritual abuse.

My professional experience also includes being a postpartum doula. In that role, I provided direct support and coaching to help parents navigate the life transition that a new baby brings to every family. As a Mentor Coach with SCC, I carry this knowledge into my coaching sessions with individuals who are newly postpartum and looking for additional life support.
