Michael Shahan, Marriage and Family Therapist and Enneagram Specialist based in Kansas City, Missouri

Hi, I'm Michael

I’m a Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), practicing out of Moss and Main Therapy Group in Kansas City, MO.

Like all of my fellow therapists, I’m trained to understand that every person is different. Part of our job is to figure out what therapy modalities and theories each individual responds to best and how each person can heal best.

What I didn’t know when I started practicing is, there’s a personality roadmap I can follow to help people find their path to healing more quickly and more completely. That’s where the Enneagram comes in. Today, I teach Enneagram methods to people as a personal-growth tool, and I work with professionals, businesses, and other therapists to help them use Enneagram inside their workplaces and therapy practices.

Most people go through life assuming the way they think, act, and perceive the world is more or less "normal." That's not true!

The Enneagram explains how people have very different core motivations and fears that fuel their actions. Unlike personality tests like the Myers-Briggs or the DISC test, the Enneagram reveals why people are the way they are, rather than focusing on what they do.

I use the Enneagram as a self-growth tool. By understanding the nuances of each Enneagram type, people can develop a deeper compassion for themselves and the people around them. And, with a little practice, you can start to see the world through the eyes of someone else - and it may look completely different than you ever imagined!
