Shannon Nichols, MA, RMHCI, RMFTI
Shannon provides a nonjudgmental space for her clients to share their life stories. She helps empower her clients to reach their goals by offering them unconditional support through the safety of the counseling relationship, coping skills, feedback, and insight. She is especially passionate about working with individuals living with anxiety, depression, trauma (acute and chronic), LGBTQIA+-related concerns, oppression and marginalization, grief and loss, and concerns related to couples and families. Shannon uses an integrative approach that draws from person-centered, trauma-informed, mindfulness-based, existentialist, and multicultural approaches.
Shannon received both a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a certificate in Family and Relationship Therapy from Rollins College in 2022. She is a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern and a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern. Shannon is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Gottman Method Couples Therapy Level 1, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and various mindfulness-based methods. She also received a Community Herbalist certificate from the Florida School of Holistic Living, giving her a background in holistic healing and plant medicine.
In her free time, Shannon enjoys being in nature, traveling, playing music, writing, yoga, meditation, and biking.
