Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I work from the philosophy that we are all born whole and that treatment seeks to return us to that state of innate health and well-being. I try to avoid burdening people with needless labels and pessimism. My style is positive, supportive and encouraging. I do use psychiatric medications but try to do so cautiously to avoid risk and needless side effects. I work in a large holistic group practice called Wholeness Center where we focus on collaboration with you and with each other.Read more

Dr. Shannon says...

I work well with a wide range of issues from anxiety to depression to ADHD to Mood disorders.I am board certified in child and adolescent psychiatry, general adult psychiatry as well as integrative medicine. So, I am comfortable with folks of all ages, but I generally see children, teens and younger adults. I like to develop a warm relationship in which we can both be honest and open. I enjoy getting to know the families that I work with. I like to think of myself as a partner rather than the boss or expert. I really want to know what you care about and what is important to you.

I have been in the filed of holistic and integrative medicine for over 35 years. I have been trained in acupuncture and nutrition as well as herbal medicine and natural supplements. I have written two of the original textbooks in this field.  I sit on two national boards and speak widely all over the world. This is because I love to teach. That means I enjoy answering your questions and encourage them.
