Shannon Falkingham – MACP, RP (Qualifying)
Hi, I’m Shannon!
My passion and purpose is to help teens, tweens, kids and young adults shift out of whatever they’re struggling with so they can begin to find their voices, and learn to fully love and accept themselves for exactly who they are. Whether struggling with depression, anxiety, self-harm, or relational skills, it’s important to me that my clients know that they’re worthy of love and belonging.
My own experiences showed me that these stages of life involve many unique struggles and challenges – some overwhelming, isolating and difficult to manage. With so many new temptations and choices, young people can benefit from having a safe, compassionate space where they can take off the mask, see that they’re not alone, and gain support and skills needed to make lasting positive change.
Part of my work is serving clients with cognitive and developmental disAbilities, whose high incidence of mental health challenges often go overlooked due to the focus on their disability. I realize and acknowledge the unique needs of each individual, and enjoy collaborating with them in an empathetic, accepting, and genuine environment.
Above all else, I believe that everyone is deserving of the life they want to live and I’d love to connect to begin the journey together.
