SHANNON SCHUREMAN, MSEd

Staff Therapist (she/her)

Shannon Schureman 2.jpg

Shannon Schureman is a staff therapist at Insight & Action Therapy, holding a Masters in Mental Health Counseling from CUNY Hunter College.  Formerly a photojournalist, Shannon seeks to empower people to tell their stories, eager to understand the context of their reality.  This interest in another person’s narrative lends itself to thoughtful curiosity and a distinct sense of empathy. Through close collaboration, she hopes for clients to get curious about themselves, process their intersecting identities and articulate their own narrative.

 

Further pointing her in the direction of the mental health field is her lived experience with chronic illness.  Living with a disability has layers that entail complex social and emotional implications.  Shannon understands these impacts firsthand and can support clients in navigating the ongoing and dynamic adjustments that life often demands.  Additionally, she has experience in addressing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, early adulthood struggles, life transitions, sexual and gender diversity.

Approach

Shannon uses a Humanistic, Person-Centered approach, honoring the unique insider knowledge that each person has on their lives. This is especially helpful for those with complex family backgrounds and young adults navigating identity development.  Through Motivational Interviewing and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, you will collaboratively navigate any uncertainties you may be experiencing, empowering you to resolve ambivalence and develop psychological flexibility. Clients often report enhanced self-concept and a greater capacity to engage fully in the spectrum of life’s challenges and opportunities.

 

Throughout the therapeutic process, Shannon is devoted to multicultural awareness and advocacy while centralizing the experiences of BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ identified folks, persons with disabilities, and neurodiverse communities.  She creates an informed and affirming environment that deepens a feeling of safety and unconditional acceptance.  Her warmth and transparency inspire close collaboration for meaningful personal development.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"I also just want to say how incredible my time with Shannon has been.  Therapy is even more rewarding than I imagined.  I've literally been telling everyone as if I discovered The Beatles."
