Meet Jenine Shaw
Hi, nice to meet you! I’m Jenine- a Mental Health Therapist with a Master’s Degree in Counselling
Psychology from Yorkville University.
This all started when I took an Intro to Psych course during my first year. It was my first time discovering psychology and I was hooked. I can’t quite put words to it, but there's something that continues to draw me in.
Applying psychology to help others is my calling and working with clients genuinely lights me up.
I am committed to this career because counselling allows me to fulfill that calling and
live my passion, week after week.
What to Expect When
What to Expect When
I specialize in helping professionals who have been dealing with anxiety, stress and depression.
In my work, I use an integrative approach, with a particular focus on Cognitive-Behavioral, Person-Centred, and Strengths-Based modalities.
My experience with coaching introduced me to motivational techniques, goal-setting models, and accountability/support frameworks that influence my current counselling approach. Additionally, I am dedicated to remaining informed on best practices and routinely attend courses to build on my pre-existing skills.
Lastly, I recognize the courage it takes to participate in counselling and honour the experiences you bring to therapy. As a result, you can also expect to find empathy, respect, patience, and understanding at the root of my approach.
Personal Interests | Closing Note
I am happiest and most myself when I get to tap into my creative side, spend time in nature, and connect with loved ones.
I love listening to music, and nothing brings me joy, quite like singing (albeit poorly) to my favourite songs. (Side note: if we do end up working together, don't be surprised if I share a few song recommendations every once in a while).
The main way I connect with nature is by walking in the mornings when the roads are empty, which allows me to truly take in my surroundings and fully immerse myself in the present moment. And lastly, I deeply value relationships and believe that connection is the key to a happy and fulfilling life.
One last thing that you should know about me is that I have a genuine interest in people and passion for what I do. I deeply cherish the ability to partner alongside others as they take risks, explore their emotions, and experience transformational shifts in their lives.
Thanks for reading this far. I hope this gives you a better sense of who I am and that we will have the opportunity to meet in the future!
See you around,
