Hello, my name is Shannon Hickman, LCSW, CST and I am an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 12 years of experience in a variety of disciplines. When I began my career, I worked in various group and individual settings, including hospitals, clinics, and drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Over the years, however, my path and passion has led me to open a private practice. My varied experiences encouraged me to hone in on my goals and my mission as a social worker. Now, I am committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment focused on individual and couples counseling as well as sex therapy. Furthermore, the breadth of my expertise which stems from my previous experience now allows me to help my clients with extremely diverse concerns.
I believe that it is a culmination of the experiences in my life which led me to pursue a career in social work and ultimately allowed me to specialize in the area which I am most passionate about which is individual and couples counseling and sex therapy. From the time I was a small child, I have always been driven to help others. One of the first jobs I chose directly out of high school involved working with elderly adults at an assisted living facility. This opened my eyes to a world of need and encouraged me to attain a college degree in an area that would allow me to help those around me.
