Shannon Theobald is a Licensed Associate Counselor (LAC) in the State of New Jersey, as well as, an experienced Life Coach and Executive Coach. Shannon’s passion has always been to connect with others in a way that is genuine, meaningful, and ultimately helpful in supporting the growth and management of all that is, life. There is no way to predict what life throws our way (sometimes, lemons), but how we react and navigate determines the quality of life we get to live (hopefully, lemonade). Add in the ability to have healthy relationships along the way (love: self, friends, professional & romantic), and you will be surprised how productive and fulfilled you can become personally and/or professionally. Shannon is dedicated to helping others find purpose and meaning in who they are and what they do, and uses a variety of approaches & techniques to facilitate this process, accommodating each client’s needs in an effective tailored way.

Prior to obtaining her LAC, Shannon had a long career at Dale Carnegie successfully coaching and consulting with employees and managers, at all levels, to provide training solutions that met the strategic development needs of the team—and larger organization(s). Though Dale Carnegie Training provided Shannon core certifications, please note, Shannon does not offer Dale Carnegie specific training or materials in her current role.

Later in her career, Shannon decided to pursue higher education to become a licensed counselor in order to help a wider population, on a clinical level. Currently, Shannon works at a non-profit agency serving adults with chronic psychiatric illness, in addition to, working for The Kraft Group, as both a Counselor and Private Coach. If you are considering counseling and/or coaching or want to learn more—Shannon would be delighted to speak with you and answer any questions you may have.

Shannon takes an interactive, supportive, and empowering approach to both counseling and coaching—but ultimately Shannon believes her clients are the experts on their own life and can decide what they are ready and willing to work on—because life is a series of choices that, in the end, only you can make.
