About Shannon’s Coaching

Shannon holds a master’s degree in Counseling/Human Relations from Liberty University, and is certified as a Christian Life Coach by the American Association of Christian Counselors (A.A.C.C.).

Although trained in the field of counseling, Shannon chose not to pursue licensure as a professional therapist because such would require that she only see clients face to face within the state of licensure. Rather, as a Certified Life/Relationship Coach, Shannon is able to serve clients from all over the globe, either face-to-face, by phone, or via Zoom.

Her specialties include helping clients of all ages:

  • * discover the root causes of why they are acting out sexually or entangled in an emotional affair
  • * understand the reasons why they are shutting down sexually or emotionally within a relationship
  • * examine unconventional or unwanted sexual fantasies and how to effectively manage them
  • * heal and create a new vision for the future after being betrayed by an intimate partner
  • * discern the healthiest choice possible when considering separation or divorce
  • * learn strategies to cope with relationships that pose special challenges to genuine intimacy
  • * help single, divorced, or widowed people develop the courage and skills to pursue a potential relationship


Shannon provides confidential coaching to women, men, couples, parents and teens, regardless of religious beliefs or sexual orientation. Her youngest clients have been 11-12 years old, and her most mature clients have been in their seventies.

Most coaching sessions take place over the telephone, but if you’d prefer to meet with Shannon face-to-face (especially for 3 or 6-hour Intensive Sessions) you may do so in her hometown of Richmond, Kentucky.

If it would be easier to bring Shannon to your home vs. her office (especially in the event of family coaching), she does make house calls (travel expenses and time rates apply).

Discounted coaching packages may be available after the initial consultation, as we try to save you money however we can. 

Group Coaching

If your group would like to schedule a session with Shannon via phone or Zoom, we welcome the inquiry! Some examples might include a 30, 60, or 90-minute session for:

  • * a local MOPS group
  • * a Sunday or Wednesday night youth group meeting
  • * a men’s Bible study group
  • * a Celebrate Recovery meeting

If you are female and would like to participate in an anonymous group for women who are either acting out sexually, shutting down sexually, or simply need to sift through emotional baggage and how it is impacting your health and relationships, consider attending one of Shannon’s 4-day Intensive Women at the Well Workshops in either Tyler, Texas or Richmond, Kentucky.

Shannon helped me in ways no one else could. When I started working with Shannon, I had hit rock bottom and had zero self-worth. As Shannon & I continued to work together, we got to the root of my issues & I was able to lose the shame & guilt. My marriage was saved & I have continued to grow in every way over the last 2 years.
