Shanna has a Masters degree in Counselling and advanced training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). Check out Shanna’s page describing this powerful technique. She has experience working with various client concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, family and peer relationship issues, and stress related to life transitions. She is a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
Depending on the needs of her clients, Shanna may draw from various counselling approaches including EMDR, Coherence Therapy, Ego States Therapy, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. She jokingly considers pursuing professional development trainings to be one of her hobbies. In all honesty though, she believes that she owes it to her clients to make sure that she is constantly learning and growing professionally in order to best help them.
Born and raised a Winnipegger, Shanna does hate the cold but likes this city all the same. Travels have taken her to various places including India, Thailand (where she lived for more than a year), The Philippines, and South Africa. In her free time, she writes lots of case notes, enjoys playing board games and spending time outside (mostly in the summer!). Two of her favourite things are eating sushi and playing with puppies.
Sometimes the decision to seek counselling is not easy. Shanna believes that change is possible, that change takes courage, and that it is a privilege to come alongside each person as they move toward hope and healing. For more on Shanna check out her website here!
