Hey there! I'm Seandel (Pronounced Shawn-dale). I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. My experience ranges from working in a juvenile detention center, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, and mental health centers. My diverse experience and education have allowed me to gain knowledge of working with children on the autism spectrum and their families, substance abuse, emotional disturbance, low self esteem, assertiveness training, mood instability, and survivors of sexual assault to name a few.
My therapeutic orientation is reality therapy and choice theory that does not dwell on the past but how to live in the here and now and not allow the past to stunt growth or dictate the future. I want to empower my clients, support them and guide them to develop healthy coping skills and self-discovery.
Life tends to show up whether we are ready or not, and I specialize in helping individuals, families, and groups process and deal with those issues. I understand the importance of building a strong therapeutic relationship that is genuine and promotes growth. My ideal client will value my supportive yet direct approach as he or she is ready to make changes in their lives and be the best version of themselves.

Seandel had me pegged in 15 minutes and through three sessions had made me think more about my 61 years than I could have imagined. She’s wonderful!!

I want to take a moment to express my appreciation for my therapist. She has been incredibly helpful, responsive, and great to work with. Her knowledge and skills are impressive, creating a safe and non-judgmental space for me to open up. She consistently respond promptly to my needs, and regular check in on me. Her guidance strikes the right balance, challenging me when needed and allowing me to find my own solutions. She’s down-to-earth and easy to talk to, making me feel understood. I highly recommend her.

She is an amazing person, she is to the point in a extremely perfect way. She listens so well and has helped me talk through and realize things I never knew about myself. She has been a huge help and a unbelievable support. I am so great full for her experience, professionalism and words of wisdom and reasoning.

I have appreciated the time spent with Seandel. She helped me to recognize and understand some of the ideas, restrictions, and challenges that I place upon myself (most times without even knowing). She listens and provides different ways to look deeper within to recognize patterns of behaviours and ways to work through things. It was great to have someone make sense of this for me.
