Shannon Stalnaker, MS, LPC has worked in Family Based since 2008, starting as a Bachelor’s level clinician and working her way to Supervisor Certification. She is currently the Director and clinical supervisor of a Pennsylvania Family Based program at WellSpan Philhaven in Dauphin County. While on that journey in Family Based, Shannon had opportunities to work in varying clinical and non-clinical settings, each of which reinforced her belief that working with the full system is critical to healing.
Shannon’s primary areas of interest are building working relationships with the family and the community system. She also enjoys the balance of developing new therapists while navigating the high-risk needs of the families they serve. Shannon is immersed in these systems issues with her staff on a daily basis. This real-world experience informs her training approach with the Foundations Series, as she enjoys orienting new therapists to the ESFT approach in Family Based Mental Health Services.
