Shannon Mong supports adults & teens who want something to be better, yet are uncertain how to navigate from where they are now to where they want to be. Her goal is that you gain a better understanding of the situation and yourself, implement new strategies and skills to successfully manage the transition, and emerge with greater confidence to journey through future life events.
A clinical psychologist, Shannon Mong was trained at the Wright Institute in California and has been licensed since 2006. She works with clients across California in remote (video) sessions, with an approach that is down-to-earth, direct, and relatable.
Shannon’s approach is informed by psychodynamic theory and grounded in an understanding of human development, attachment theory, equity, and resilience. In everyday language, that means she recognizes each client has developed a unique approach to navigating change that’s been influenced by many factors – how your brain processes thoughts, feelings, and sensations; relationships with people you counted on while growing up; your gender, identity, race, ethnicity, and class; life events you’ve experienced; the stage of life you’re in; and the people you’re currently connected to. Shannon anticipates every client has many strengths (some they may not fully be aware of) and that you are motivated to use these to thrive, not just survive.
A Board member for the College for Behavioral Health Leadership since 2019, Shannon Mong has consulted, presented, and trained nationally.
