I have been interested in mental health for as long as I can remember, working with children in many different capacities since 2003 and have been working in the field since 2012. I am also a member of the American Psychological Association.
I graduated with a B.A. in English from University of Vermont (2011) and an M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Saint Michael's College, Vermont (2014). I am a mother and a veteran of the United States Air Force.

Play Therapy and Art Therapy are very beneficial to children and youth of all ages. Children who have experienced challenges in their lives often do not have the words to accompany these experiences since they often occur pre-verbally. Play therapy and art therapy provide a form of release and information. Often children get stuck and simply need a little assistance. That is where my services come in. We will work together to uncover what is preventing your child from feeling their best self.
Sometimes certain circumstances prevent children and youth from feeling their best and most unified self. This is where psychotherapy can be of great assistance. Psychotherapy services consist primarily of talk therapy, and its success depends on the relationship between the therapist and the child/youth. Through this work, the client and family will learn new strategies and coping skills that will assist with future life challenges.
Anxiety, Depression, Loss, and Trauma are all areas that I can focus on helping your child move through.
I bring the therapy to you! We will meet virtually via an online platform. As long as there’s a quiet space with an internet connection, we can make it happen! I am flexible with hours and days, so let’s connect and find out what works best. Keep in mind that I typically follow the BVSD schedule, so I am not available for those holidays and breaks.
I have a sliding scale ranging from $80-$120/per session. I accept cash and checks made out to Shanna Shushereba/A Connection in Time and Space.
