I'm passionate about helping and connecting with others. My wealth of clinical and front line experience provides me with expertise and practical skills not possessed by most therapists. I view each client as an expert in their own lives, largely integrating their goals in counselling. My work is inspired by the science of neuroplasticity, thus I provide education about human behaviour and brain functioning to help clients make sense of their difficulties and see their challenges from a normalizing view. Many clients find this information to be helpful, hopeful, and empowering, as it gives us a roadmap for resolving their issues.

Feeling stuck? Overwhelmed? Anxious? Experiencing relationship hurdles? Grieving a loss or simply want someone to talk to? Whatever it may be, together we can work on positive change. We can uncover the patterns of thoughts and behaviour that may holding you back. We can replace despair with hope, self-doubt with self-esteem, and sadness with joy. Simply put, we can discover your better self. You may not have a specific “problem” necessarily in mind; you don’t need to be given a reason to begin the work.

When feeling stressed, anxious, or depressed, finding meaning could be a key component to help us cope. Through slowing down and allowing - there is room to learn about emotions, relationships, engagement, boundaries, resilience, recovery, and accomplishments. My goal is to help you feel empowered throughout your journey, while integrating your personal goals and strengths into your everyday life. Whether it be regulating emotions, thoughts or behaviours, I am committed to practicing a compassionate and non-judgmental approach where you are the author of your story.

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 am passionate about helping people find their authentic selves, to live fuller, more fulfilling and flourishing lives. Fostered by and continually growing through my own introspective explorations, the integration of a mindfulness component has proven to me to be very beneficial. Carl Jung said that an effective therapy was difficult to facilitate unless the therapist, as well as the client, was willing and able to change. Without this mutual transformation, all remain calcified.

Unresolved trauma, attachment injury, and old emotional wounds from the past create a fractured foundation. They affect our sense of self, make us feel empty inside, and lead us to believe that there is something terribly wrong with us. However, some symptoms that we experience as adults, such as excessive self-blame, addictive behaviours, anxiety, depression, a constant need to please others, sensitivity to rejection, and being easily overwhelmed, are caused by what failed to happen for us in childhood. Let me help you explore the part of you that was hurt and still carries the trauma and suffering.

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.
