Her Mission
Shantel Daniels is committed to helping her clients rejuvenate their relationships, personal sense of security and emotional safety. She knows that stronger partnerships start with the individual, and she helps each of her clients work on their own inner peace and communication skills so they can contribute to a healthier individual or partnership. She offers couples therapy, relationship coaching, marriage counseling, virtual workshops, and more.

Shantel is also on a mission to break down the barriers between people and their ability to access mental health support.  She believes getting mental and emotional health is like finally getting that access to someone who can be with you in ways that add to your feelings of safety and helps build your sense of security in a world often struggling with it's own.

Having someone show up for you changes the game, and knowing you matter can make the difference between being seen and that you matter or being isolated and alone.  No psyche is meant to be in solitary confinement.  Isolation and minimal access to caring and supportive others can cause anyone to quake (or start to break down), feeling no sense of belonging. The bottom line is, everyone needs a healthy place to belong. And when we do, we can thrive and feel secure from the inside out. (Stay tuned for Shantel's mini book on mental health). It will truly be a labor of love.

The Journey Began 

the numbers

a look at

Peony Enthusiast:

I love Peonies.  They usually bloom on a stem of 5. I imagine them already attached, already poised to  grow together. So delicate, They stand together and yet hold solitude gracefully. Just stunning.

A Lover of Musing

There are many ways to be inspired to create, yet when I'm inspired by my the muse of writing and divine inspiration, I find myself on the greatest adventures meeting some pretty authentic people or making more room for creative moments. That's what being open to new experiences has offered me. Beautiful play and connection.

Dance & Movement Fuel Me:

I love dance and movement. If I feel the music or the moment, there's no doubt I'm on my feet in motion, creating a moment of my own. Or in some free-spirited way, taking the moment in. I live for those times.

 And rarely do I miss my favorite ballet company when they are nearby. Perhaps next time i'll have to experience them abroad. I love love love dance & culture

Whimsical Adventurer:

I see the sunshine as a canvas. The outdoors a place to adventure. Whether I'm hiking, bonfire ready, or just pulling over to take in a new part of an old city or new one, the fun part is being in the moment, all planning aside. 

Books...Books, and More Books

I've always had this fascination with books and learning. Being a gifted child probably had a lot to do with that and the fact that I naturally enjoy sharing my discoveries. And I see stories as a way of expressing the creative part and in enriching life and connection.

And I love occasionally getting a little fancy and enjoying the imagination in the moment I get to create.

about me

fun facts

As a kid, I had no idea what tender love looked like. My parents were married for 40 years and I never once saw them be affectionate with one another. I did see them do things for one another. My father went to work and my mother tended to the kids. And I wondered what happiness looked like between two people. I knew I felt happy when I stood next to my father and he worked on cars. The only thing was, working on cars was far different than working on or being in a relationship. 

I took note when my father worked on cars to get them in their best running condition. I learned the importance of keeping the oil changed and fluids maintained. And I learned which sounds signaled which part needed repair. The squeak or new noise I heard when I started the engine was signaling me that a problem was arising before the part would eventually stop working. A relationship has signals of its own when it’s starting to falter: Emotional disconnection and lack of affection or care are the signals that a relationship is in trouble. Back then, I never knew signals that a relationship was failing. I did at least know that for a car. I was able to drive, yet struggled to stay connected.

Relationships were off my father’s radar, and when I asked what I should be looking for in a partner, he told me, “If you like em', I love em'. I needed more direction than that, and through the years, I learned so did others. He honestly gave me the best advice he had. In my heart, I knew that. 

"Helping Couples, Singles, and Organizations unhinge themselves from inauthentic monotonous living, for connection that gets them excited to get up in the morning"
                                                       - Shantel

Much like you know with those you may be seeking advice from. I discovered that when it came to relationships, many were as stalled as I was and had questions about what to look for, how to have one, and how to repair them. They were filled with more questions than answers. More guesses than solutions.

I persisted to find practical answers for you and me, and turn being clueless about love and connection into a thing of the past. Now I have answers, and practical solutions to relationship dilemmas. I became the expert in what use to be one of my most confusing subjects. 

And now I help couples find custom solutions to the dilemmas they face. We collaborate to create actionable steps to move from conflict to the kind of connection you can rely on and trust.

When it comes to relationships, winging it can never be a long-term solution Everyone traveling in the circle of relationship needs to know not only the thing that signals a problem – they also need to know how to get to the core of the issue and back to experiencing more loving connection. And a relationships full potential. I now know what this feels like in abundance. And I enjoy helping clients and people just like you develop your own loving connections.
