B. Skinner Coaching & Psychotherapy is excited to announce that Registered Social Worker, Amy Shaw has joined our team!
Originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Amy began her professional practice specializing in dementia services, behavioural support, and geriatrics. After a move to Toronto to broaden her scope of practice, she has returned home to the Soo excited to use the expertise she gained to support the members of our community. Amy uses Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and supportive counselling techniques in her clinical approach and works to promote an empathetic and encouraging therapeutic environment.
“I am really looking forward to collaborating with the amazing members of this community to make a positive impact in a place that means a lot to me, “ says Amy, “ I am also looking forward to being part of the wonderful team here at B. Skinner Coaching & Psychotherapy and to work with and learn from my amazing team members.”
When asked what advice she would give to individuals that are struggling with their mental health and may feel hesitant to seek services, Amy shared, “When you are struggling with mental health it can leave you feeling very isolated and alone. Often, the stigma of mental health can make it even more difficult to reach out and can leave us isolated. Experiencing concerns with our mental health is a very common human experience. Seeking support can be very hard and takes a lot of strength. I would like to let people know that there is hope and that they are not alone. As a clinician, I am dedicated to a supportive and non-judgemental therapeutic approach and I would be honoured to support you as you embark on your healing journey.”
