Shannon La Douce,

As a mom and Army Veteran, I am passionate about supporting those who have dedicated their lives to service (of all types!) I am adept at working with the “givers” – the folks who are often over-extending to those around them.

I am committed to creating a safe and judgment-free space for you to finally be the one that receives support.

Whether you’re a veteran navigating the challenges of post-service life, a healthcare provider managing the pressures of the field, a mom juggling the demands of parenthood, or the friend who everyone turns to, I am here to partner with you to give YOU the support you deserve.

My decade of nursing experience spans across every chapter of life, from labor and delivery to end of life and cancer care.

-Outpatient mental-health facilities

-Active-duty army registered nurse, variety of inpatient hospital settings all over the country

-Nursing leadership

-Nursing faculty and clinical instructing

My Philosophy

I value working as a client-provider team to develop treatment plans that incorporate motivational interviewing, psychoeducation, medication management, therapy, movement, nutrition, and building self-esteem and self-confidence. I believe my clients know themselves and their needs best.

I enjoy guiding others towards identifying their own power and strengths and helping them access it.

What are some of your hobbies or interests outside of work? 

“Mom” is my most important title to two fantastic kids. This chapter of life is largely spent encouraging and fostering their passions.  I am very involved in coaching youth sports in my community and love to be out on the field with my own children. I love living in the PNW because of the outdoor playground it offers; hiking, paddle boarding, biking, and spending time at the coast and the gorge. I am a CrossFit Level I Trainer and a Certified Fitness and Nutrition Trainer which I pursued due to my love of fitness and helping others build strength, confidence, and health. I enjoy working towards new physical and mental challenges. Over the last couple of years that included running on a Hood to Coast relay team, participating in local CrossFit competitions, and a half marathon.

What personal experiences or beliefs most influence your approach to psychiatric care and how you connect with clients? 

I have been an athlete my entire life, served in the military, and worked in a variety of hospital settings as a registered nurse prior to becoming a PMHNP. Teamwork was essential to all of these arenas and formed the foundation of care I provide today. Working as a team and building a strong therapeutic relationship together to make my patients feel heard and advocated for is the most important aspect of my care. I have worked in a variety of nursing roles caring for patients at every stage of life; from labor and delivery to cancer and end of life care. I learned the commonality of all of these was how important support is during our difficult times. I am honored to be that support for so many individuals.

What is your favorite method for managing your own mental health and well-being? 

Juggling single motherhood and a busy career challenges me the most in terms of learning to prioritize my own self-care.  I enjoy weight training, CrossFit, riding my peloton, and running. The physical strength I build while training transcends into mental fortitude and confidence in myself and my abilities.  The more times I prove to myself that I can conquer a physical challenge, the more I believe in myself to make it through life’s hurdles and trust that I can navigate difficult times mentally.
