Shannon Colburn-Blinn, LCSW

I know that seeking help is often a difficult decision whether it's for yourself or your loved one. I commend you on your choice to strive for a healthier life. It is important to me that I provide an accepting, comforting environment that allows you to feel safe when discussing difficult topics. As a social worker, I am very client-focused. You are the expert in your life and I want to join with you to enhance your strengths and prepare for a brighter future. 

I specialize in trauma, PTSD, brain injury, personality disorders, chronic pain, depression, anxiety and grief/loss. I enjoy working with a diverse population. I  am knowledgeable in working with children/adolescents who have ADHD, behavioral issues, attachment, neurological disorders, and self-harm. I am trained in EMDR, TF-CBT, DBT and use a wide range of techniques. I enjoy working with young children, teens, families & couples. 

When working with children, I utilize play/therapeutic art in my practice to assist children in working through the feelings they are unable to talk about. I am knowledgeable about IEPs and 504s and can assist in issues related to school as I know this can be a very overwhelming and frustrating process.

Reaching out for help is an important step toward making positive change in your life. I believe the therapeutic relationship is a collaborative one where I help you help yourself along the path of change. I have been working in the mental health field for 15 years and work with children, adolescents, and adults. I provide individual, couples, and family therapy in a safe and nonjudgmental environment. Day, evening, and weekend appointments are available.

My specialties include anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, grief, loss, chronic health issues, transitions in life, and relationship issues. I am trained in EMDR and holds certificates in mindfulness-based stress reduction, mindfulness interventions for children and adolescents, and cognitive behavioral therapy. In addition to working with adults, I work with children and adolescents who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, school stress or peer issues. I am a trained Gottman Method Couples Therapist and enjoy working with couples to improve their relationship. I use art, music, and play in my work and strive to help people develop healthy coping tools to manage stressors in life. I believe moving beyond your comfort zone to make personal change takes courage.

Ganit will have Sunday hours by appointment and is only offering telehealth at this time

Ganit Gray, LCSW

    Life can be overwhelming.  Opening up, finding someone to share that struggle with, and learning to move forward can be just as hard.  I believe that all of us have the power to make things better.  Once we get started, really amazing things can happen. 

     It brings me joy to join with clients in a partnership and help people find their way during dark times.  In therapy, we will cultivate a space where you will feel valued and empowered to find your way.  I practice from, above all, a strengths- and person-centered lens, and your values will come first. 

   I have sixteen years of experience working in community mental health, with two and a half years as a therapist.  I have helped people struggling with anxiety, depression, self-doubt, difficulty with motivation, periods of intense distress, and at times mood swings or psychotic thoughts managed with medication.   I also have taught public speaking at the college level and can assist with challenges with interpersonal effectiveness or overcoming fear of speaking in public.  I provide telehealth appointments on weekends with adults.  I have experience with Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and exposure- and acceptance-based frameworks.
