Her background includes working as a certified elementary teacher as well as working in a counselling role providing one to one and group support to those affected by brain injury. Shelly's professional experience involves supporting others as they work through a wide range of circumstances including emotional challenges such as depression and anxiety, traumatic events, family of origin issues, grief and loss, as well as stress and burnout. Shelly draws from various therapeutic orientations, including cognitive behavioural therapy, narrative therapy, solution focused therapy, play therapy, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
