My Background and Approach
Shannon Edwards - Social Worker - Psychotherapist
I provide individual therapy to adults, children, and youth experiencing a wide range of difficulties including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, and grief. I also provide parenting and family support to help parents navigate the challenges of family life.
I utlise a collaborative and client-centered approach, and I am deeply committed to creating a judgement-free atmosphere.
I am extensively trained in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and am accredited in an internationally renowned parenting approach. I am also an EMDR therapist.
In addition to my private practice, I provide therapy to children and teens at a child and youth mental health agency. I have also provided counselling with employee assistance programs and at a long-term care centre.
I am registered with the Nova Scotia College of Social Workers and the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, and am member of the Ontario Association of Social Workers.
