What I Do

You have the power and the resources you need to thrive throughout your first responder career!

I know this might sound like a really bold statement to make…especially if you are currently feeling overwhelmed or stressed out by some of the challenges of the job.

As a resilience training coach, I work with law enforcement professionals and first responders whose lives are being impacted by the stresses and experiences inherent to their job, so they can be more resilient and effective in their personal and professional lives.

Learning to discover your resources and to develop strategies to mitigate stress and resolve adverse experiences is putting the power of action in resilience. As a resilience training coach, I will work with you to build your resilience-capacity so you can minimize the influence of stressful incidents and adverse events in your life.

Organizational Training

To create a resilient organizational culture the practices of resilience-building must become a regular part of training for all employees, just as vital as all the that is important to the safety and well-being of your people. 

One-on-One and Couple’s Coaching

Even coaches have coaches! Why? Because coaches can help us to become more effective in reaching a goal. I work with individuals and spouses and partners to bring more resilience into their lives and relationships to be better able to withstand and thrive through the influences of living a first responder life.


As a neuro-science brain geek, I love every opportunity to speak to and share knowledge about our brain, the importance of integration, and empowering modalities to increase resilience capacity.

“Shannon King is an incredibly wise and experienced teacher and healer. I have been blessed with her presence in my life as my personal coach. Shannon has many tools at her disposal to help listen and heal both mentally and emotionally. She has come from 25 years as a law enforcement officer, and has ended up on the other side balanced, happy and healthy. She now teaches others in not only her profession, but other professions how to maintain that same balanced, happy and healthy lifestyle no matter what the stress of their lives. She has amazing intuition and has cut right to the matter when coaching me, saving me hours of contemplating and procrastinating my goals. She has a loving and warm demeanor. I always know I can share anything with her and she never judges- only comes from a centered place of love. I have reached my personal goals faster and far more effectively since coaching with Shannon King, and I highly recommend her to anyone!”
