To the editor:

I, Shannon Brandes, am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida and New York and a certified distance credentialed counselor. I graduated with my bachelors in elementary education from Wichita State University in 2009 and received my master's degree in mental health counseling in 2015 from Medaille College in Buffalo, N.Y. Recently, I obtained my distance counseling credential, which allows me to serve clients via technology if we cannot meet face to face.

I have been treating clients since 2014 working in a variety of settings to include forensics, foster care and adult mental health. A variety of mental health concerns that I address include, but are not limited to, anxiety, depression, phase of life problems, relationships issues, substance use disorders and other severe mental health problems. I have experience treating adults, adolescents, couples and families.

I believe in a holistic and integrated approach to counseling in order to have a balanced life. I derive counseling techniques from a variety of approaches in order to meet each client's unique needs. When or if desired, physical wellness can be a focus as I am a certified personal trainer. Christian counseling is also an option if this is desired of my clients. Each person that enters counseling in my practice is considered unique and will be treated fairly without fear of judgment.

Balance Becomes You is located at 13960 Stringfellow Road in Suite 3, Bokeelia. I take appointments between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday through Thursday, Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday is an option if needed, but not guaranteed.

To make an appointment, call 239-227-8622 or email at Visit my website at for more information!
