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 to talk 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 and life coaching topics. I focus on individual growth and improving interpersonal relationships. Those relationships can be marital, dating, families, friendships or the workplace.

I also specialize in recovery from psychological abuse. I write extensively on the topic and was co-investigator of the research project “Examining Patterns of Psychological Abuse.”  I have been a content expert guest on radio shows and my second book, Healing from Hidden Abuse: A Journey Through the Stages of Recovery from Psychological Abuse spent time as #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, Mentor Coach

As a Mentor Coach (Life Coach), I bring to Southlake Christian Counseling life experience being raised as a pastor’s kid (PK) in church and finding myself divorced after sixteen years of marriage. Now raising three beautiful kids as a single mom and all the responsibilities it entails. I am a survivor of covert and overt psychological abuse and bring my own recovery journey to my work as a Mentor Coach. I am not a licensed therapist and am therefore able to do phone and online coaching sessions throughout the country. My masters degree is in a field not related to counseling.

I believe there is hope and restoration on the other side of whatever trials we are walking through. There is immense healing available in sharing our story with someone else.
