Welcome to Chilliwack Counselling. My name is Shannon and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#3801) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors and the Owner of Chilliwack Counselling. I was born and raised in Vancouver and I received both my Bachelors Degree in Psychology (Hons.) and my Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology from Simon Fraser University.
I specialize in the treatment of mood disorders, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia, seasonal affective disorder, PTSD, stress-related problems, grief and loss, addiction and substance abuse.
I also specialize in Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy for couples who are contemplating separation/divorce, facing a betrayal (infidelity, jealousy, breach of trust), lacking communication and intimacy, or who are feeling overwhelmed by stress and family responsibilities.
Additionally, I am registered with the First Nations Health Authority to provide counselling services to people who are eligible for funding through the First Nations Health Benefit. I am also registered to provide counselling services through the Crime Victim Assistance Program and ICBC.
I also have extensive knowledge and experience working with The Mental Health Act, Forensics and Corrections and I am available for private consultation.
I am grateful for the opportunity to be granted access into the depths of one’s soul- in a collaborative search for peace. I hope that in the time spend together we are able to mitigate what we perceive as stress, if only for a moment. I wish to do so by advocating self-development and actualization. My hope is to connect with clients while supporting them during difficult times. In doing so, I wish to create a safe and comfortable environment.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor. I have 4 years of clinical experience in substance misuse, anxiety and depression, relationship and cross cultural concerns; 6 years of mental health related experience. I have worked extensively with individuals struggling with mental health issues along with substance misuse concerns (co-morbidity and concurrent). I tend utilize a holistic approach, drawing from a number of therapeutic approaches. I believe that each client is unique and deserves tailor made synergy.
I am a warm and nurturing Registered Clinical Counsellor who offers compassionate understanding and a caring approach to life’s difficulties. Whether you are experiencing loss and grief, trauma, anxiety, depression, or simply need some support throughout a difficult life event/situation/period, I am here to assist you. My work ethic involves creating a safe, non-judgmental and comfortable counselling environment, where you can take time to work on yourself and develop more authentic approaches to life. I believe that everyone is capable of overcoming adversity, and I will work with you to help you develop post-traumatic growth and better strategies for coping.
