Shannon Thomas, LCSW-S
As the Owner and Lead Therapist, 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.
As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), my primary area of specialty is recovery from abuse. I write extensively on the topic as a media content expert (www.shannonthomas.com/press). My international bestselling 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 also specialize in working with women as they face the many-faceted changes that come with perimenopause. This season in life can bring layers of physiological, emotional, and relational challenges. Underlining mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression can become exacerbated during this transitional period and counseling is an excellent source of support.
I began working with families in 2000, started in private practice counseling in 2007, and opened Southlake Christian Counseling in 2009. I have a bachelor’s 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, LCSW
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Senior Staff 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 received my Master of Social Work degree in 2015 from Texas Christian University.
