Veritas Counseling Center was opened in 1991 as the solo psychotherapy private practice of Shannon K. Spellman, M.S.W. Since 1991, Veritas Counseling Center has been the registered trade name and the practice was converted to a limited liability company in 2003. In 2008, Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning were added to the practice. Continuing Education training for other professionals has been offered since 2012.
Veritas, pronounced "ver' uh toss", is taken from the Latin word "verity" and is used as a symbol for Truth. Truth, in this sense, basically means the absence of denial. At Veritas Counseling Center, clients are gently encouraged to break through denial that keeps them trapped in dysfunctional patterns so that they may move towards becoming their True Selves and being True to themselves.
At Veritas Counseling Center, LLC all clients are welcome regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, or religious affiliation. Ages treated include adolescents and adults.
