Shannon Byrne, Registered Psychotherapist (RP)

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I earned
my Master of Arts (Counselling Psychology) from the University of Western Ontario and have experience
providing intensive behavioural therapy and crisis counselling to children, adolescents, and adults, as
well as longer-term individual psychotherapy to adolescents and adults of all ages and of diverse backgrounds.

I work to support clients dealing with a number of issues such as obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), depression, traumatic brain injury, stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship concerns, trauma, and living with disability.

My therapeutic approach is eclectic and is informed by client-centered therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). I am committed to ongoing learning in order to best support my clients. I aim to create a warm, collaborative, and safe space in which clients can feel open to explore their thoughts, feelings, behaviours, experiences, and goals.

I know what it’s like to live with mental illness and I know how it can affect every aspect of one’s life.
Through my own journey (which is ongoing!), I have learned that while things may seem as though they will never get better, they can, and there is help out there. My hope is that I can support others in their own journey as many mental health professionals have supported me along the way. 

I am seeing clients in our Thornhill office, located on the second floor of the Promenade Mall.
