I met with her when she was interning at the Meeting Point last spring, and at that point the matters under discussion were largely pragmatic ones, which she was instrumental in helping me navigate. She's full of creative solutions to weird problems, and especially knows a lot about interpersonal dynamics. She can shed a lot of compassionate but realistic light on power imbalances and tacit dissatisfactions between/among partners. She's personable, interesting, knowledgeable, and unconditionally accepting. She's got another website (the first result of her name on google) that outlines the other work she's done, much of which informs her knowledge base and her approach to being a therapist. In terms of what I don't know about her: idk about the degree to which she's practiced in trauma-focused therapies, and I don't know about her background working with people of color.|

She has not studied but has experience with Internal Family Systems as well which I have found extremely helpful. I believe she is a Buddhist, and is good for people whose life involves some amount of spirituality as she would never judge that. I am not clear on her overall familiarity with polyamory, but I am out to her as polyamorous and it was completely not a big deal to her. Not aware of how familiar she is with kink although I may find out.... She is literally the best therapist I have ever had and I think that she's highly adaptable to whatever people have going on.

He minimizes femme invisibility, talks about himself a lot to the point where the client then has to try to redirect the conversation back to themself, has made messed-up assumptions about trans people (like assuming a cis person would be sad about their trans partner's genitals during sex because the person is trans and not cis), and exhibits a #notallmen attitude at times (like when talking about being traumatized by mass shootings) because he's so obsessed with validating masculinity. I felt like I often was his go-to gender resource when *I* was paying *him*.|

I was skeptical about what was possible given that it had to be Skype work because he's physically based in Vermont but he's clearly figure out how to adapt therapy to a distance model, and I can't believe how many tools I've gained and how much my life has changed since starting to work with him.

- Extremely high EQ and interpersonal skills
- Is essentially a "bridge therapist" (she does not see clients long term, typically 1-9 sessions, with the intent of placing them in long term therapy after evaluating them.)
- Need a PCP at a Cambridge Health Alliance facility in order to be seen by her, but can request her if patient does have a PCP there.
- Comes highly recommended by her co-workers, and most people's only complaint is that they are sad she's not a long term therapist.

It's very good (IMO) for depression and trauma, which are her main specialties.

Also, she has personal experience with mentally-ill family members, which can be SUPER helpful if that's a thing you deal with as well.|

I gave her a 2 because she doesn't seem to be super versed in poly culture, but it's not a problem for me. Seems to be fine with pansexuality and my relationships with trans/GQ people. I haven't brought up much in the way of kink yet. Did seem a bit clueless about sex work, but nonjudgemental beyond "safety concerns." I'm white, so can't comment on POC friendliness. Does seem to be burner culture informed but isn't making assumptions. So far we're meshing well on discussions of boundaries and drug use. Dance/movement therapy aspect is a nice, low key addition to sessions and very helpful; I wish more therapists integrated the body into their work with clients.||Lots of narrow steep stairs to get to office, near Harvard||This therapist is now in the New York City Area 6/13/19|

Really good on communication strategies in couples therapy - actually ignored all the content of our issues and just focused on communication styles. Was all about meditation and traditional approaches to mindfulness - not my thing, but it might be yours; tbh I felt kinda judged when it didn't work for me. Didn't seem to recognize (definitely didn't validate) when my partner was manic/psychotic in couples therapy.||Up a few steps to get into the building, office is on ground floor, hallways might be a little narrow||Yes|

The basics Harvard Pilgrim, Blue Cross, etc.
|I don't know|
There are multiple therapists at this location, and they are specifically LGBT focused. If you went to Pride you likely saw them there. Shannon was not well versed in poly when I met her, but she was open minded, listened, asked questions to clarify, and ultimately helped me navigate poly as well as my own life. I was a patient of hers for over 5 years, and wish I was still local enough to see her.
10 minute walk from Green St. Station. Parking is on street only. There is a ramp for person's with a disability though the front entrance is a bit tight for wheeled mobility devices.
