Anne Shannon

Therapist, Psychotherapy & Counselling
MA, Counseling Psychology (Trinity Western University)

Anne is a therapist, working in private practice in Vancouver for the past 20 years. Growing up as a missionary child, and active member of her church, Anne is well acquainted with the lived reality of mission and ministry and has a heart for the church.

The focus of integration of faith and learning in her training at Wheaton College and Trinity Western University is part of the foundation of her approach to coming alongside people who are hurting and wrestling with difficult life circumstances. For many years, Anne's work was with people who had experienced trauma and difficult early childhood relationships. A passion emerged for her, out of client’s questions, for the healing and integration of true self and helping people to live life fully alive. She now brings her experience and passion to leaders and those who are caring for others, coming alongside in the lonely places of leading and caring, addressing personal areas of growth, and strengthening resiliency and mental health. When not at the office, Anne can be found making paper and sculpting with it; at the beach; or trying a new recipe.
