SHANNON ALLEN, CCC, MACP
Staff Therapist serving AB, BC, MB, ON
Shannon is a recent graduate of the Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology program with Yorkville University and is a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC). She also holds an undergraduate degree in Human Ecology with a specialization in Family Studies from the University of Alberta. As a Human Ecologist, Shannon worked with clients following a holistic approach by honouring all their relationships and all levels of their environment. This lends well to her new role as a perinatal counsellor.
Shannon worked for a number of years with a non-profit organization supporting teen parents and their families. Her professional work experience also includes supporting young adults in a community setting from a strengths-based perspective. She is a wife and a mother of two daughters. Her passion to continue working with mothers in a therapeutic setting has been guided by the loss of her first daughter and the unexpected journey of motherhood.
