Hey Yall Hey!
So you want to know something about me huh...
My name is Shanta (pronounced Shon-Tay) Jackson and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed here in Texas and Georgia. But outside of being a therapist, I am a real life homegirl. Yall...I just be chillin. You can usually catch me at the house with the husband and kid. Yeap, I am somebody mama...I am still shocked to this day. I have a 4 year old son, who is giving me a run for my money. He keeps me on my toes yall...and I question Jesus like...sirrrrrrr, why you doing like this?! No but seriously, he's the cutest most sweetest kid ever. Motherhood has stretched me in places that I didn't even know I needed to be stretched.
Anywhoooo, as you can probably sense, I am not your typical therapist and that's how I like it. It's funny, I became "The Homegirl Therapist" simply by me describing to others my style of therapy. I would always say, "I am like your homegirl, you will feel comfortable talking to me, and I just so happen to be a licensed therapist." Since then, thanks to my mom for telling me, "you really should turn that into something", I did. (Black mama's are magical.)I use my brand and platform to normalize therapy, to advocate for your healing & mental health, and breaking any stigma's and stereotypes that you may have about therapy. I ultimately use my platform to provide hope, in an language that my community understands. I'm your homegirl.
I am also co-owner of my private practice Trinity Rising Counseling Center, where I provide therapy to individuals, couples, and families in Dallas, Texas.
