More about me
M.Ed, LMSW-C, LCSW
Years in Practice: 4
Hello! My name is Shannon Toy, but I prefer to go by my middle name, Julianne.
I live in Virginia, but hold licensed in 3 states. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Virginia, a Licensed Certified Social Worker- Clinical (LCSW-C) in Maryland, and a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in Michigan. I have experience working with a wide variety of clients all the way from birth to elder care. I have worked in many different settings including homes, the community, courts, jails, hospitals, schools, and offices. I also have experience doing teletherapy in multiple different formats. I have 4 years of therapy experience, but before that I worked as a case manager, and volunteered with at risk youth and individuals with developmental disabilities for many years. I have worked as a crisis therapist to provide brief therapy and to provide interventions with individuals with at imminent risk, and have done both individual and group counseling.
My counseling style is solutions focused, and strengths based rather than problem focused. I am a true believer in client centered care, and believe that you should be included in every step of your care. Working with me means that I will advocate for you and work WITH you to empower you to live a happier and healthier life.
If you are ready to take the next steps to finding your version of a happier and healthier life, I am here to support you. I look forward to hearing from you, and can't wait to get started!

About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
