The affordable therapy program
Hi, my name is Shannyah and I am a mental health advocate, speaker and qualifying registered psychotherapist. I have an honours bachelor's degree in Social Work and am currently completing my Master of Arts in the counselling psychology program.
I focus my work on the impacts of trauma, racial identity and injustices, mental disorders, toxic work cultures due to mental health neglect, and other factors that hinder people from thriving through counselling, consultation, training and mediation.
I have been in the Social Work field for 8 years and have dedicated most of my career to working with Black, racialized and vulnerable communities, working with youth, and adults. In 2018, I founded a nonprofit organization, PositiveVibes T.O, where I educate youth and young adults in areas such as (but not limited to) mental health, racism and discrimination, sexual health, and leadership.
Using a trauma-informed focus, I plan to continue to support individuals, communities, and teams to overcome obstacles that impede growth and healing so they can live prosperous and purposeful lives.
