Hello, Cyclebreakers. I am Shawnnell Batiste, your Barrier Breaking, Master Level, No Bullshitting Licensed Professional Counselor providing Mental Health & Wellness services to BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, Foster/Adoptive Families, and formerly incarcerated individuals, among other marginalized & disenfranchised communities. I offer Psychotherapy virtually to people of all ages in her native state of Louisiana, my resident state of Texas, as well as internationally. I offer Mental Health and Wellness Life Coaching beyond the boundaries of my Licensed states. After serving over 20 years in several capacities in Social Service, I formed Choosing Empowerment LLC, whose 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. I take seriously my commitment to being highly respected as a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor, Mental Health Advocate, Speaker, Author, and Leader in the Community, and my character, as an honest, informative, straightforward, compassionate, non-judgmental, and understanding clinician and the everyday person. I believe in accountability and empowering my clients and everyone around me to do the work needed to heal and become their best and highest versions of themselves.
