Hello, Cyclebreakers. I am Shawnnell Batiste, your Barrier Breaking, Master Level, No Bullshitting Licensed Professional Counselor, and Mental Wealth Coach, and my Barrierbreaking team and I provide Mental Health & Wellness services to BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, Foster/Adoptive Families, and formerly incarcerated individuals, among other marginalized & disenfranchised communities. We offer Psychotherapy, Mental Wealth Coaching, skill building, and other resources virtually to people of all ages in Louisiana, Texas, and internationally. Choosing Empowerment’s foundation rests on the POWER of CHOICE and the POWER of HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS. As a part of the mission to provide access, Choosing Empowerment has become a training ground for therapists of color and those with a sincere and intentional passion for serving Marginalized and Disenfranchised Populations. We take seriously our commitment to being a safe space for our clients to be their authentic selves. We believe in accountability and empowering and supporting our clients and each other to be their best and highest versions of themselves. We are changing the way therapy is done with innovative and eclectic methods that are individual to the specific client. We welcome all who are ready to break the Cycle and rise above the BS!!
