Hi I'm Shane Adamson

I live in Frisco, TX. I own a counseling clinic. I cherish my marriage with Wendy and being a father to Taylor, Noel & Halle.

About Me

I grew up in rural Utah helping my grandparents with their farm. I remember most summers of my childhood harvesting cherries, apples, and peaches. I appreciate the hard work ethic that farming gave to me. I am a masters level professional counselor. My passion in life is helping individuals, couples and families to overcome complex personal problems. When I am not working, I enjoy the great outdoors, photography, and doing activities with my wife and family.

Why I am a Mormon

My beliefs are the paramount influence in my life. My faith in Christ and His teachings holds me together in times of adversity and provides me hope and direction as I plan for my future. When I was a teenager, I was rebellious, immature and made poor choices. During that period of time, I was confused, depressed, and my life was ridden with one crisis after another. Leaders from the mormon faith reached out to me and extended a two-month challenge to me. This challenge became a defining moment and significant turning point in my life. I decided to serve a mission for my church. It is really an exciting a faith building experience to submit your mission application and say, "I'll go where You want me to go Lord." I was called to serve in the Fukuoaka, Japan mission. I came to love the Japanese people. I kept a photo album of pictures of my family. The Japanese people are very hospital and welcomed me in their home. I developed so many dear friends and came to love Japanese culture, cuisine, including sushi! The Japanese people taught me about honor, humility and to be disciplined about education. My mission experience matured me significantly. As I attended college, I had a special experience where I felt God call me to the profession of counseling. When I sit with an individual, couple or family, I consider that personal and private sharing to be very sacred ground. Through my personal and professional experiences, I feel I have gained an understanding about the amazing complexity of human development. I see people as innately good and my role is to help them overcome challenges and reach their potential. I find my call as a counselor. While I enjoy my profession and being a mormon, my Family life experiences have brought me some of my favorite and most joyful life experiences. We have a quote on our wall that reads, "Family, we may not have it all together, but together we have it all." I love family Togetherness!

What do Mormons believe about family?

Shane Adamson
I love the adventure of life. I love hiking, biking, exploring and traveling to see new places and experience new cultures, landscapes and food. However, I have come to believe that the greatest happiness one can experience in life is most often in marriage & family life. It can come from a funny comment from a child, a family vacation, or doing service. I have come to believe that the organization and inspired teachings in the mormon faith creates strong families. As a counselor, I see the many "challenges of the world" that can so quickly attack families and replace happiness with tension, loss and stress. Some common things I see include: Marriages getting neglected, affairs, addictions and divorce. Children face bullying, peer pressure, and the many unhealthy things found on-line in popular culture. Pornography can harm youth or adults and quickly replace the sanctity of sexuality with heart-ache, grief, and addiction. Some people wonder what mormon's do attending church for three-hours! I strongly encourage you to find a mormon friend and attend the three-hour block. It will be common to hear messages about Christ, faith and repentance. As you pay attention closely to the themes of these talks, classes or discussions you will see the beauty of the LDS Faith. We are earnestly striving to learn how the Gospel of Jesus Christ can strengthen individuals (youth and adults) as well as marriage and family life. Many Mormon's have very strong families!
