Teen and Young Adult Therapy with Shannon


Do you ever feel like this?


These stages of life involve so many unique struggles and challenges, which can be overwhelming and difficult to manage. With so many new temptations and choices, young people can benefit from having a safe, compassionate space to sort through feelings, values, and goals.


Are you looking for assistance in any of these areas?

  • Developing strategies to reduce anxiety, stress, depression, hopelessness, or self-doubt
  • Developing healthy coping skills to reduce the use of unhealthy coping skills such as self-harm behaviours, alcohol or drug use, and sexual acting out
  • Developing and/or improving of self-esteem and working to encourage a sense of belonging, competence, and responsibility
  • Healthy relationships, sex, sexual identity, and gender identity
  • Developing ways to manage anger or control impulsive behaviour
  • Coping with traumatic events
  • Learning to express yourself and improve communication
  • Facing difficult changes in the family or community
  • Navigating the stress that comes with work-related problems, financial strain, and unemployment/underemployment

If so, reach out to see how counselling may help!

We will meet in a comfortable, confidential, and judgement-free space, where we will work towards building a relationship where you are comfortable sharing your personal struggles and stories.

Sessions will be geared towards whatever it is that you are needing that day. I won’t judge you if you drop the occasional F-bomb or want to chat about video-games. In fact, feel like playing a game while we chat? That’s possible! Do you enjoying colouring or using fidgets? They’ll be available. My goal is to make you feel comfortable and safe in your journey to process whatever it is that is going on for you. I am experienced in blending effective clinical interventions with the stuff teens and young adults appreciate.

If you are a teen, young adult or a concerned guardian in the Grey-Bruce area please give me a call at 226-230-3433 or email me at shannon@talkandplay.ca to set up a free 20-minute consultation!
