Written by N.I. on Jul 30, 2021 after counseling with Shonnia for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, and adhd

Shonnia has been a breathe of fresh air to me. In my short time with her Ive already made connections within myself I had not seen before. She is very intuitive and has been receptive even to backgrounds she is not familiar with. I would recommend her to anyone that needs help understanding their dynamics in the world, family or career.

Shonnia takes time to understand her patients rather than diagnosis them right away. She cares about what each individual is saying and takes it into consideration when speaking to them and giving out advice. I enjoy my time with her!

I’ve found Shonnia to be great for helping me to celebrate myself and ground myself. She asks the right questions and doesn’t pressure you. Has worked with kids and can sympathise with issues about teaching. I talk a lot and Shonnia is able to help me make sense of my million thoughts and bring it back to myself and what I want or need. I always come away feeling empowered and challenged. I appreciate her input and help hugely.

Shonnia is a great counselor who is incredibly supportive of the goals that I have in my journey through therapy. She listens very well and provides really good insights that have brought some realizations for me that I definitely would not have had otherwise. I'm really grateful for her and am excited to continue to work with her.
