Shannon Deacon (she/her)

Virtual / In Person

Fertility, Perinatal, and Postpartum

I am a registered Social Worker practicing with families and individuals in East Toronto.  I have worked for over two decades supporting parents and families, particularly those at risk, providing teaching and counselling to many new moms.  My lens is based in attachment work, anti-oppressive practice and Emotion-Focused therapy, amongst other tools.  But really, my most valuable experience comes from being a mother myself.

When I became a mom, I realized that, while I knew parenting was going to be hard, no one can really prepare you for the intense, emotional, joyous, joyless, overwhelming, exhilarating, exhausting, exciting, frustrating and love-filled experience that is new parenting.  I believe that it’s important to provide women and families the space to talk about their experiences and challenges in a non-judgemental, solution-focused way.

Psychotherapy – Adults | Psychotherapy – Children | Social Work

As a Social Worker, a parent, and a regular human being, I have seen firsthand the challenges life can throw. In today’s world of fast-paced, instant-everything and go, go, go, many of us are feeling the impact and struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, and generally yucky feelings.

Using an emotion-focused, attachment-based approach with experience in CBT, ACT, EFFT, and 22 years of experience in the field, I work with children, adolescents and adults to help find relief and build coping strategies to face life’s twists and turns. I am working both virtually or in person, or in a hybrid approach and am currently accepting new clients.

Family Therapy

I work with families, children, couples and individuals to build and repair the connections that help us cope. Working from an emotion-focused, attachment-based approach with experience in CBT, ACT, EFFT, 22 years of experience, a Masters’s Degree in Social Work, and a minor in parenting a toddler, I provide solution-focused support to children, parents, families, couples and individuals. Working both virtually and in person, or a hybrid approach, I will meet with the family as a whole or in parts to help tackle the challenges together
