I am a compassionate social worker providing therapy to clients struggling with challenging life experiences. It can be difficult to cope when experiencing stress, depression, anxiety, interpersonal conflict or low self-confidence. It takes courage to reach out for help and I provide a safe and supportive space. Together, we can focus on skills that foster resiliency in the face of inevitable life challenges. I have several years of experience working with adolescents and adults dealing with anxiety, depression, stress, grief, shame and guilt, interpersonal conflict, and substance use and other mental health concerns.

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.

Are you are in crisis, struggling with an on-going issue or seeking to be free of restrictive emotional patterns/responses? If so, I can help you move from a place of limitation, to one of possibility and choice. Psychotherapy can provide wonderful benefit with long-term results. Learning to take care of ourselves is something we often take for granted and is not always easily achieved given our histories or daily stressors. I will support you in stabilizing yourself and situation, so that you can face your challenges and evolve in directions that feel authentic, liberating and ultimately sustainable.

As a gay man I have a particular interest in working with other gay/Bi/Queer men, but all are welcome. My approach is uncomplicated. I work from a client-centred, trauma-informed, psycho-social perspective, using a goal-oriented approach.

The desire for self-awareness, personal growth, and change often motivates individuals to seek out psychotherapy. Disharmony within our sense of self and others can lead us to experience thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that prevent us from living our happiest and most authentic selves. Whether it is coping with grief and loss, processing trauma, or navigating existential concerns regarding identity or purpose, self-exploration within a psychotherapeutic relationship can move us towards an increased awareness of how these dynamics operate within our lives, and forging commitments toward actions that yield meaningful change.

You aren't alone. For many of us, the past few years have tested limits of our resilience. When you're overwhelmed, feeling down, anxious, upset or even confused about what you're feeling, you might find that your ability to cope is fragile or missing altogether. Sometimes you withdraw or act in ways you wish you didn't. You may have tried different things to feel better but the strategies you've been using aren't working so well or you don't know where to begin to fix it. But you're not broken ! It's normal to feel stuck in these ways that make it harder to live joyfully and to be present within yourself and with others.

With my current placement at ReNu, as a student therapist I look forward to assisting people to share their stories and provide a safe space for them to be able to feel their emotions as well as find validation in their life experiences so far. I truly believe and respect the human mind and its complex functions and will always be in the pursuit of understanding it. I believe that therapy is a positive first step and is a healing pathway to discovering oneself and an avenue of self-growth. I look forward to an experience of dedicated work towards this path of holistic growth and wellness.

Life can be difficult. Relationships, stress, dealing with systemic racism, depression are all too real experiences of life. I can help you navigate these challenges and issues that come across your path. If you are experiencing anxiety, relationship issues, trauma from racism or depression, I want you to know that there is hope. And healing is possible. As a second-generation Canadian, cultural sensitivity is a foundational piece of my worldview. I am trained with an anti-racism, anti-oppression approach. I don't know everything but am willing to learn. I can help you deal with your experiences, worries, hurt and pain.

As a Sudanese refugee, trauma was woven into my life story. It took me a long time to believe that I was strong enough to handle the weight of my own emotions, but I found a path that helped me to feel at home in my own body. Healing cam be messy and painful at times, but if we choose to ride it and extend ourselves grace, then profound and radical change can happen. With mindfulness and a somatic approach, we can start to discover that everything we ever needed is already within us.

We all face difficult times in our lives. I believe, however, that we have the strength to meet these challenges head on, overcome our blocks, and ultimately benefit from these opportunities for growth. Of course, we may not always be able to see our way through these times on our own. A collaborative therapeutic relationship established in a safe and supportive environment can allow us to unlock the strength and resiliency we all carry within us.
