Description

I have recently completed the Infant, Child & Adolescent Mental Health and the Advanced Social Work Practice Graduate Certificates through the University of Calgary.  
​
Education, work experience, along with, being a mom of twins has helped shape how I work with children, youth individuals, and families. Special Interests of mine encompass child and adolescent mental health and well-being particularly surrounding Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Eating Disorders.
​
Outside of work, I enjoy Lego with my kids, helping with home reno’s, yoga and playing with my pups Elvis and Milo.

Shannon Martin Counselling Services

Summary

I seek to work in tandem with people to come to understand how their worldview affects self-concept and in turn their coping. You are the best person to understand your experiences and needs. I offer a balance of holding space with people as they process life events and support self-acceptance / personal growth.

When working with children and youth my role is to not be needed when all is said and done. Thus I work with the family unit to help navigate challenges and develop coping strategies to heal and grow together.
