About the Author

Shannon K. Spellman, M.S.W. is an author and psychotherapist in private practice in Phoenix, Arizona.  She specializes in treating adult and adolescent survivors of incest and sexual abuse, challenging adolescents and family systems, addictions, codependency, and recovery issues, adolescent life cycle issues, posttraumatic stress disorder, family of origin issues and interventions.  Additional practice areas include anxiety, depression, couples' issues,  grief and loss, eating disorders, stress management, personal growth and coaching.  With over 28 years of clinical experience, she provides individual, couples', family, and group therapy, and also offers Seminars and occasional Weekend Intensive Workshops and Retreats.  In addition to her professional qualifications, Shannon is also highly committed to her own recovery and personal growth. 

As an author, and as a therapist and facilitator, she gently and appropriately blends together her personal experience and professional skill in a nurturing manner that allows others to safely heal and move forward in their lives.  Shannon divides her leisure time between the desert and the mountains and enjoys Spiritual pursuit, hiking, dancing, camping, trail riding with her horses,  and  playing with her dogs

Shannon also offers presentations and facilitates training workshops for other therapists on various topics, including working with incest/sexual abuse survivors, and working with challenging oppositional and delinquent adolescents in outpatient settings.  She utilizes a down to earth yet professional style, in both her therapy practice and her training, that allows the participants to feel comfortable and relaxed.  As an author she maintains this same style in a manner that helps the reader/listener to identify and challenge their own ineffective coping techniques while building new skills and strengthening the resources they already possess.
