Work With Me

Are you confused about the next steps of your journey and yearn for clarity and confidence?

When you don’t trust yourself or don’t have a clear sense of direction, it shows up in your life in unpleasant ways:

  • You lack energy and enthusiasm for life.
  • You feel disconnected from others and tend to isolate.
  • You can’t figure out why others are fulfilling their desires while you are not.
  • You question your choices or don’t feel confident enough to change things.
  • You feel stuck and overwhelmed.

I understand where you’re at. I was once there myself, feeling stuck and confused, unclear about my relationships and choices—until I decided to get out of my passive mentality and invest in the things that empowered me to be who I am and do the work that I do today.

My approach to healing is psycho-spiritual and integrates my education in traditional psychology as well as my training in metaphysics, mysticism and the intuitive arts. Combining counseling and coaching with spiritual  healing, expressive arts therapy and other healing practices, as needed,  I can help you get to where you would like to be. Each session is tailored to you and your unique experiences, gifts, challenges and goals.

You are intelligent, creative and spiritual, but you also need guidance and support to get out of the rut you are currently in. I will guide you step-by step while holding you accountable to do what you need to let go of what’s keeping you stuck.

transform your life with spiritual healing & art therapyPerhaps you feel frustrated and unheard in your relationships,  or worry that you may never fulfill your dreams. You may even be envious of other people’s success.  You listen to experts online, but it gets you nowhere, with so many choices it can be overwhelming. So while you watch others accomplish their dreams, you are still in the same place.  I’ve been there, and I couldn’t understand why everyone around me seemed to be moving ahead effortlessly while I was caught in the struggle.

But now I can help you transform your life through a healing process of personal growth. The challenges and unhappiness you experience are often the result of not trusting your inner voice. You may be blocking your own truth and clarity with fear or outdated beliefs and pushing yourself to be or do things you think you should be or do instead of what you really want to be doing.

feel empowered with Shanel Jackson, spiritual arts therapist


When you know yourself and have clarity about who you are and what you want, you feel:

  • Empowered to express yourself freely.
  • Confident in your ideas and choices.
  • Inspired, creative and at peace.
  • Really connected and understood in your relationships

Perhaps you think that you can’t afford to do this work or that you don’t deserve the freedom and clarity you are longing for.  Maybe you believe you should be able to find a solution on your own, or that your life is not so bad; that you should just be satisfied with what you have.  Now ask yourself, where do you want to be one, three, five years from now? Well, if you don’t do something about it NOW, you will likely be in the same place.

Isn’t it time to choose YOU and take the necessary steps to create change and feel more empowered in who you are? Make the leap today!

What some of my clients say:

Always a pleasure

“Shanel is a kind and open hearted person, she is also fun. Healing work is often a painful process but in my experience working with Shanel was always a pleasure. It was not easy, but I was always excited to try the various practices and assignments she offered during our sessions. I had a big transformation working with her and went from a pretty shy and timid person to a confident person who is more comfortable expressing my thoughts and feelings with others.  I struggled for a long time with my voice and being heard, I never spoke up for myself and I could hardly make eye contact with people when they were talking to me. In working with Shanel I got to the core of why I didn’t feel like my voice was valid and where a lot of the anxiety around being seen was coming from. Over time she provided me with guidance, healing sessions, tools and techniques that helped me completely change how I see myself and how I experience my life.” —Mary H.

She is the real deal

“I was looking for something different after being in therapy for a few years when a friend referred me to Shanel.  I was a little skeptical about seeing a healing artist because it has been my experience that a lot of “spiritual” people are kinda flakey and I’m really just not into a lot of the new age nonsense I’ve seen around.  Shanel is honest, direct and down to earth. Her perception is sharp and she gets to the heart of the matter in a short amount of time. I made breakthroughs with Shanel in months that could have taken much longer in therapy. She is the real deal, no nonsense.” —Emily K.

A great support

“Shanel was a great support to me when I was going through a divorce and one of the most difficult times of my life.  I was depressed, stressed out and scared. I had no idea how to begin picking up the pieces of my life. Shanel is down to earth, calm and always present.  Whenever I was with her, the tension, fear and anxiety I was experiencing would settle. Her attitude of acceptance and non-judgement allowed me to safely explore difficult truths. And the homework that she gave at the end of each session helped me heal and feel courage to begin the steps to get my life back on track.” —Deanne S.

It's time to heal all of who you are to discover what you truly want!


If you find yourself in a state of imbalance, experiencing lack of energy, restlessness, confusion, anxiety, feelings of depression or physical discomfort, you may need more than just someone to talk to. In my experience, spiritual healing can be very effective to support counseling or any type of therapy.

discover yourself with spiritual healing & art therapyI have been trained and certified in various vibrational healing modalities such as crystal healing, color and sound therapy, but my primary healing modality comes out of the African American folk healing tradition of laying on of hands. Depending on your needs, a Tarot card reading can also help get a clearer sense of direction of your life path and insights about the issues that you are struggling with.

If you want to make effective change, you need to start investing in yourself to receive the guidance and support to gain insight and clarity about yourself, your life and your next steps. I know I can help you. I integrate different tools to support you to discover and understand the patterns holding you back, so you can discover yourself, understand what your life is about and what you're here to accomplish.

Make the decision to embrace all of YOU and take charge of YOUR life. This is for you if you want to:

  • Discover a greater sense of purpose in your life.
  • Achieve fulfillment in your goals and aspirations.
  • Feel more joy and passion, connected to yourself and others
