Hello, I'm Shanaz

Shanaz Ikonne is a licensed professional counselor, speaker, consultant, entrepreneur, and mother who advocates for increasing workplace wellness.

I’m here to help break some generational chains, barriers, and anything holding you back from being your most authentic self.
I offer trauma-informed virtual counseling sessions that treat the whole person, nurturing the mind and body.
My practice focuses on the unique needs of individuals, corporations, businesses, and universities who want to reduce mental health stigma and mental illness by fostering an inclusive, safe place/workplace that promotes health, healing, and emotional wellness.
