Hi, I'm Shannon Perrone (She / Her / Hers) the founder of Inner Bloom Healing.

I'm excited that you are considering working with me on your journey to wellness!

I have spent over 20 years studying how to help people and am happy to share my life's work with you.

I believe every therapist needs a therapist and I have been telling clients this for 20 years…’if you meet a therapist who doesn’t have their own therapist, run in the other direction”.  BUT we are good at finding many barriers to doing our own work, I get it, it can be scary.  So if your barrier is fear, let's lean into it… “I’m afraid my therapist will think I’m too crazy to be a therapist? What if someone sees me at her office? What will my family think?  I’m afraid to tell someone in the therapist community my trauma. What if I need medication?”

My experiences over the past 20 years working as a therapist, qualified supervisor, trainer, speaker, and manager at agencies, group practices, and now private practice have led me to this place.  I practice what I preach and have managed my own flair ups of imposter syndrome, vicarious trauma and let go of the shame associated with the fire and crisp of burnout. I know how to come out the other side with abundant lessons and growth and I continue to share the elixir on this Hero’s Journey.  I believe my noble path is this one, to help other therapists, my soul's GPS leads me back to this always.

How am I different?

I invite and give you permission to be vulnerable, all parts of you, even the shadow side.  I am dynamic and move with you, I am not your typical therapist, I emotionally connect with all of my clients creating a solid therapeutic relationship therefore I am invested in you, I am on your team.

I hold ethics and competence at the top of my professional responsibilities.

I believe in challenging the status quo and thinking differently, we will explore these possibilities together.

I work best with clients who come to session with an agenda, connecting the dots from last session to current and doing their homework.  Yes, I will probably ask you to journal and meditate.  If you are ready to do your work, then I’m here for you.  If you’re at a stuck point, knowing how to help others heal, but struggling to get past the block to do what you know you need to, I am here to hold you accountable.  I am not your typical smile and nod therapist; I am in this with you and I love working with clients who want to grow into their full potential and live their life in full bloom while doing the work they love.

It’s my goal to see you leave after each session feeling more confident, empowered, and excited about the future.
