Shannon Judd

Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate

Shannon has a Master of Arts in Counseling with a concentration in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Wake Forest University and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. She is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (LCMHC-A) and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist Associate (LCAS-A) in North Carolina. She is also a National Certified Counselor (NCC).

Her experience includes working with clients who are dealing with life transitions, stress, relationship challenges, anxiety, depression, substance use, and more. Shannon’s preferred theoretical approaches include person-centered, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and motivational interviewing. However, her theoretical orientation can shift to accommodate the client’s needs.

As a counselor, Shannon strives to reduce the stigma against mental health and therapy while also reminding the clients that it is “okay to not be okay”. She treats counseling like a conversation between individuals in a safe space where the client can be seen and feel heard. She enjoys helping clients by showing up for them in ways that others in their lives have not. While also empowering them to find the power to overcome life’s challenges.
