hi, I’m Shauna.

When life doesn’t go as planned, the human mind adapts the best way it knows how. These adaptations are brilliant, but there comes a point in time when they no longer serve us well. Perfectionism, over-analyzing, people-pleasing, mental exhaustion, feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness, low self-esteem, conflicting thoughts and feelings, and even unexplained physical symptoms are all good reasons to reach out to a professional.

My approach considers the whole person and their experiences, while offering a safe space for clients to share under the care and guidance of a trained and compassionate presence. I enjoy using creativity, attachment theory, and elements of Internal Family Systems to help clients find clarity and relief as we gently uncover the roots of their distress.
Whether you decide to sit across the room from me on the sofa or open your laptop, I’d be happy to help you establish goals and work towards them together. You can setup a brief phone consultation or schedule a s session by filling out some info here.
