About Shannon Gilbride, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Encinitas, CA
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT # 46373) with over 15 years of clinical experience, I provide individual therapy for adults and teenagers. My clinical approach is a form of depth psychology which seeks to bring about lasting change by increasing self-awareness in the context of a life-giving therapeutic relationship.
In addition to working in private practice since 2006, I have taught as an adjunct psychology professor at Point Loma Nazarene University and provided counseling services at a non-profit agency, a University Wellness Center, a residential crisis house, and various high schools in the San Diego area. I also enjoy leading various workshops related to psychology, parenting, and Christian Faith.
