About Me

Are you looking to improve your mental health and/or the health of your relationship and willing to put the work in to do it? I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida and New York, a board certified Tele-mental health counselor and a Florida Supreme Court Family Mediator. I have successfully completed several biblical counseling courses in order to provide biblical counseling to those that are looking for God's Word to guide their path and to help improve mental and physical wellness. I have been a devoted Christian for the last 9 years and believe that God's Word is the truth that will get you to where you want to be. Biblical counseling is based upon the premise that you either follow God's Word or you don't. There is no halfway mark where you can pick and choose what to follow. If you are looking to press into God and follow Him to help improve your life, this is the place for you!

Each person and couple that enters counseling in my practice is considered unique and will be treated fairly without fear of judgment. The only thing that I ask of you is that you are ready to work and that you are looking to put in the work necessary to make the changes that are needed to make it to your goals. You are your own agent of change! I'm only here to guide you along through the process of this and to support you as you need it! Looking forward to working with you on this journey!

Written by V.A. on Oct 27, 2020 after counseling with Shannon for 2 months

I’m only at the beginning of my healing journey. Honestly, I should’ve done this years ago, but I strongly believe there is times and seasons for everything, yes even healing. I couldn’t be happier that God brought such an amazing counselor such as Shannon Brandes into my life. With each session I feel more liberated and powerful. Most importantly I feel validated. Shannon listens and brings great insight into what I’m going through. Whether it’s family issues, view of self or spiritual, she really helps me with it all become more aware of where my issues stem from and gives me great tools to work with. I would most definitely recommend Shannon to anyone and I’m grateful to God for connecting me to her.

She’s helping me sort through things and open up about things I didn’t realize were still holding me back
