My training and clinical background running inpatient and outpatient hospital and community-based anxiety programmes, cancer survivor, caregiver, and bereavement programmes inform the work I do with my clients.
I appreciate that asking for help and sharing lived experiences are whole-hearted actions. It is a privilege for me to provide individual therapy to adolescents and adults during times of great distress, change, and loss. Clients often describe a loss of meaning and purpose in their lives, overcome by confusing and messy emotions that sabotage their functioning. Some clients are acutely aware of their compromised quality of life whereas others would describe chronic life conditions. My areas of specialization include anxiety, psychological trauma, depression, grief and bereavement, terminal illness, and chronic illness.

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.

I am uniquely skilled in supporting caregiver burnout - that's the mental, emotional and physical exhaustion you feel from the huge responsibility of caring for a loved one suffering with cancer , disability, or other health issues.
You may feel that no matter what you do, it's not enough. You carry a huge weight on your shoulders, which can be overwhelming. It takes courage to face the pain and grief of life's challenges. In my work as an arts-based psychotherapist, I am witness to my clients' courage and resilience on a daily basis. I offer a safe, supportive space to explore one's heart and uncover hidden strengths and resources together. My approach is collaborative, person-centred and trauma-informed. I have worked for over twelve years supporting clients experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, grief and loss, family conflict, trauma, and disability.

I have experience working as an intern with patients suffering and dying from cancer and HIV.
It is my belief that for healing and growth to occur for someone seeking help, acceptance without judgement is crucial, recognizing and acknowledging the woundedness and unmet needs within the client. This perspective encompasses and acknowledges the entire person with whom I am working, including the physical, intellectual, emotional, interpersonal and spiritual well being of the client. No one seeking help is turned away due to the condition from which they are suffering. My goal for each client is to provide a safe, trusting space so that healing and growth can be experienced.

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.
