My background includes working with individuals who have struggled with a wide range of challenges including depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, borderline personality disorder, self-esteem, relationships, body image, substance use , addiction, anger, stress, guilt, shame, and more.
If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, stress, relationship issues or other concerns then finding the right therapist is a step towards finding solutions and increased skills to dealing with these problems. My approach to therapy focuses on helping you become comfortable and confident in your own abilities, while introducing new strategies from evidence-based approaches to help you create a healthier and happier life. Being able to understand your own story and explore the background of your struggles often gives new meaning and an ability to see new solutions to difficult problems. This is what I work towards.

Hello! My name is Shaelyn Busby and I am a fully registered psychotherapist. Are you looking for a therapist to support you in making changes in your life? Change can be scary, difficult, and intimidating even when we know change is for the better. I strive to meet my clients where they are at and empower them to have the courage to change their lives. In my practice, I use a number of different modalities to best suit the client. Every client is different so I believe every treatment plan should be tailored to the individual.

Did you wake up today and think to yourself, "something isn't right" or "I can't go on like this"? If you are struggling with your substance use and you're feeling like you are no longer in control, it might be time to consider change. Maybe you are tired of hiding your drinking as a way to cope with your mood. Maybe you have noticed that while getting high works in the moment to help manage your nerves, you are actually more anxious now than you have ever been. Change is scary, but may be necessary for you to reach your full potential.

Accepting New Clients: In-Person & Phone/Video. We believe that there is good in every person, and hope in every situation. We have helped individuals, couples, and families heal, grow, and connect. As relational therapists, we appreciate the impact that our relationships have on our well-being. We do not see clients as having something wrong with their minds that necessarily needs to be fixed. Rather, we see our clients as unique individuals, each with their own stories and perspectives, embedded in important relationships and contexts that impact them. We see strengths and we see hope, even when it feels like there is none.

Accepting New Clients - You find yourself feeling stuck, trapped in the same patterns. The replaying thoughts, emotions and images are a constant reminder of pain. You find yourself revisiting a painful or difficult past; or being terrified of the future. The urge to avoid or numb the pain is intense and overbearing. You feel powerless and a loss of control of your current life, seeking a way to empower yourself and regain control. Though life will always have its difficulties, a shining, brighter life awaits. I offer you a safe and compassionate space to explore the root causes of these difficulties.

If overwhelmed, stressed out, and anxious seem to be your common state of being, or if you are struggling with feelings of guilt, shame, and hopelessness, or if despite all your best efforts you can't seem to get from where you are to where you want to be, leaving you feeling stuck; then therapy can provide you with a safe space to be seen, heard, and understood. We can uncover the root of why you are stuck and struggling, and discover the innate wellness and wisdom that resides within you, which can help create a new way of being in the present, so that your future can look like what you desire.

Getting connected to a therapist can be hard. I ask you to contact with basic information, your availability and a phone number and I will connect with you (please advise me if I can leave a message on any phone contact you provide and/or if I can respond via your email provided (this allows a quick response). When we connect we discuss your needs, my qualifications and our working together. My approach to counselling is informal/goal focused. Taking on only a few clients allows me to genuinely focus. Rates are per session and results of change are noticed within four sessions. Counselling is a safe place to be honest and share with a professional who genuinely has concern and the ability to walk you through the change needed for you to be healthier/happier. Connect if I can be that help for you.

Choosing to come to therapy can be the first step in a profound journey of discovery and transition. That first step is one of courage, and a willingness to be vulnerable. Every person brings a different story to therapy, and my goal as a therapist is to create a safe space for you to explore your full self and concerns.
