Shannon Thomas, LCSW-S

As Owner and Lead Therapist, it is my greatest desire our clients find a confidential space where they feel comfortable talking about anything and everything 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 in all its forms. I write extensively on the topic as a media content expert ( 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

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 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.

The standard session rate is $125.
