I work with people who, in spite of great difficulties, have not given up on finding meaning in their lives. I help them as they struggle with isolation, depression, anxiety, grief or early trauma. Some are trying their best to manage difficult relationships. Others are wondering about their orientation or identity--gendered, sexual, ethnic. Others still are planning the next meaningful transition in their lives.

I have worked with clients who have multiple chronic conditions or experienced an overwhelming event (accident/ loss of a loved one).
I believe that most of our personal challenges can be effectively addressed by our internal resources and creativity. My aim for therapy is to help my clients arrive at a personal, yet structured and novel, understanding of themselves, others and the world around them. I have studied Philosophy and Psychology and I extensively use philosophical and existential ideas and insights in my counselling. I am a Registered Psychotherapist in Ontario. I have certificates in Hypnotherapy and EMDR which can be used upon request.

I have experience in supporting a variety of mental health challenges such as anxiety & depression, with a specific focus in coping with cancer, life threatening illness & chronic illness, caregiver support, grief & bereavement , low self-esteem & abandonment.
It is common for individuals to feel stuck in their suffering. Recurring issues take up space within the mind & body, making it difficult to live in the present & within one’s full potential. I use an integrative, trauma-informed & strengths-based approach to build therapeutic relationships rooted in connection, compassion & empathy to help transform this suffering into deep healing. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques including mindfulness, visualization & relaxation to help clients process their experiences & unresolved trauma & to help regulate their emotions in a healthy way.

My expertise includes acute and life-threatening health conditions, death and dying, grief , trauma, postpartum mental health, stress, depression, anxiety, interpersonal relationships, life transitions, sexuality and sexual identity.
I am Shawna - a passionate and innovative therapist who believes strong mental health is rooted in resilience and connection. Having worked exclusively with young cancer patients and their families over the past decade helped me realize that emotional pain and resilience are not mutually exclusive experiences - they live together. Through the process of recognizing and experiencing our deepest pain, fear and longing we can become better versions of ourselves. My style is empathic, intuitive, and interactive, and I uncover and guide my clients to use their untapped strengths, resilience, and potential for connection in their lives.

Psychoanalysis was originally called the 'talking cure', that is a conversation, which can help you deal with difficult emotional states, such as depression, anxiety, grief , fear/insecurity and/or any other general problems with living. In my experience, it allowed me to recover from painful, familial dysfunction, and helped me to develop in ways I had not thought possible. But whatever your reasons for seeking therapy, the unique intimacy of the therapeutic conversation can always help you to become more conscious of the forces that shaped you, and support you in the possibility of more freely determining your own future.

I recognize that sometimes what we truly need is the space to express ourselves, our emotions and our fears, but this can be both scary and vulnerable. My aim is to create a safe and secure space where we can openly confront fears together and then learn new ways to overcome them. I have an extensive experience with anxiety and depression, bereavement and stress management and specialize with self-esteem work, life transitions and lack of motivation. I have worked in and am comfortable with both short and long-term counselling in both private work and within a group setting.

I invite you to journey with me in spirit, and to discover through your period of great stress, grief , or circumstantial turmoil, inner strength that you never knew existed, and just what you are 'really made of'.
It is my firm belief that everyone deserves someone to talk to, and to pour out what has been long kept in their heart, body, mind, spirit, and soul. It is with that belief, that I offer my skills, and trained ear as a counselor, in order to help you navigate through this situation that you are finding yourself going through. You are never alone. Although it may feel like this at this very moment, you are stronger than you think that you are. Real strength, in my opinion, is being able to be vulnerable, being able to disclose a hidden problem or area of great pain, and to deal with this 'head on', and with someone who can help you.

I am a qualifying psychotherapist with specialized training in grief and loss .
Grief can be completely devastating, and perhaps one of the most difficult things you may face in life. Grief is also a normal, human response to having loved and lost, and normal in the face of any loss , not just loss due to death . Grief is not a pathological problem in need of "fixing", but instead requires compassionate care, witness, and empathic support. It requires a safe space for its expression, and so do you. Whatever type of loss you are experiencing, your grieving heart needs extra TLC. There is nothing wrong with needing a little extra help or seeking the guidance of a counsellor at such a difficult time.

Therapy is unique to each individual, and I use a strengths-based and narrative approach to highlight the importance of who you are! I specialize in grief , depression, stress, anxiety, and life transitions while incorporating various modalities of therapy such as evidence-based CBT, EFT, and psychodynamic approaches.
The experiences and challenges that we go through in life do not define us, but instead shape us to be the individuals that we are today; These experiences help us to flourish and grow in ways that we could not imagine for ourselves. This is a philosophy that I hold in great regard when it comes to my practice and work with clients. I recognize that therapy can be intimidating to some. However, I am passionate about creating a space where we can come together and work through whatever it is you’re going through, no matter what it may look like.

Are you feeling lost? Isolated? A deepened sadness that no matter what you do, nothing seems to change it? Do you carry the weight of worry? Or struggle with loss ? How about searching for meaning or a new direction in your life? If this resonates with you, therapy might be worth exploring! Choosing to begin therapy can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be when you have someone walking alongside of you on this road. My focus is to help individuals, couples, and families heal, focus on strengths, and work side by side to redefine their path and journey.
