Reality can bite, hard. I believe people can learn to bite back - and learn to be nourished. The trouble is, we can develop patterns of relating and being in the world where we remain stuck, no matter how hard we try. With a lifetime of accumulated armour and coping strategies, some having become sources of stress rather than relief, we can come to feel alienated, alone with difficulties, without a sense of hope for something better. Coming out of conditioned isolation and into fruitful contact with others and the world can be tremendously uncomfortable and profoundly liberating. Therapy is one tool to help with that process.

I want you to be able to me your story in your own way, and know that I wont judge you. I hope that you will feel safe enough with me to be able to express yourself as freely and as honestly as possible, knowing that there are no thoughts or feelings that aren't allowed in this space. And knowing that You are entitled to feel whatever it is that you feel, whether its fear or anger or jealousy or sadness, or guilt or shame.I will sit with you in this space and help you to express and explore whatever it is you might be feeling. You can be beautifully imperfect and authentically you in this space.

Life is challenging enough without adding a pandemic to the mix. Much of what we used to rely on to bring happiness day to day is now limited. So it is understandable we are more vulnerable to feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or experience strain in our relationships. This feels familiar to the clients I see, who describe being stuck, depressed, feeling angst, and not sure why or how to stop it. I've been there too, stuck with pain from the past and unsure how to throw the baggage away. I can help you find some peace, with a few satisfying 'A-ha' moment here and there, so you can release the toxic patterns for good!

Sometimes life gets hard. We can find ourselves feeling overwhelmed, overburdened, stuck in a rut, or consumed by worry. In these times, we may not like our behaviours; any efforts to help ourselves can seem futile or even make matters worse; we end up feeling isolated and alone in our struggles (even when surrounded by people). It may not feel like it right now, but change is possible – therapy can help. As registered psychotherapists we are trained to listen differently; seeking to understand unconscious processes that (while well-intentioned) may be getting in the way of the life we wish to live.

Many of us go through life experiences that leave us feeling overwhelmed, stuck, and struggling to relate meaningfully with others. I believe deeply in our innate capacity to heal, grow, and connect; sometimes we just need support and guidance on that journey. Whether working with individuals or couples, I prioritize creating a safe, warm, and attentive space to explore your challenges and generate new ways of being with yourself, with each other, and in the world.

Life can be stressful and we are all trying to make the best of what we have. But sometimes we get stuck, unsure of how to make the change we so desperately want to see in our lives. Sometimes even asking "what do I want?" can be anxiety-provoking and make us feel like there is nothing to be done. But we often need a little nudge in the right direction from someone who really gets it. Having someone to help us ask "what do I want?" and be there with us can make all the difference.

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.

It's important that you acknowledge yourself for taking the step of finding someone to provide guidance. In my thirty years of experience I've learned that a big part of the healing occurs as a by-product of the relationship between client and psychotherapist. When this relationship is grounded in safety and compassion, the relationship blossoms and healing occurs. My working style is client centered and collaborative. It invites self-inquiry--leading to a deeper understanding of issues and their root causes.

Are you experiencing depression, anxiety, disconnection, conflict, or loneliness? As a couple are you experiencing a distressing breakdown in communication? In individual therapy, we can explore the deep and often painful emotions that get in the way of feeling accepted, understood and truly engaged in one’s life and relationships, including exploring low self-esteem, self-criticism, and perfectionism. Couples therapy allows exploration of the negative cycle disrupting the relationship, leading to improved connection and communication. Family work helps reconnect the ruptured bond between caregivers and their loved one.
