Hi, I’m Shane Wright

Accredited Mental Health Social Worker

I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker who has a passion for assisting people with insights into self-defeating behaviours and strategies to move forward toward a more fulfilling life. I achieve this by focusing on each person’s unique situation and strengths. I believe in creating a caring, supportive, and non-judgmental environment when assisting people to create change.

Prior to pursuing a career in counselling, I had a 24-year career within State and Federal law enforcement. I found mental ill-health was a significant factor that too often impacted the lives of first responders and their families. As a trauma-informed Social Worker, this experience affords me with unique insight when working beside first responder and veteran men and women.

My areas of interest include complex trauma, PTSD, grief and loss, veteran and first responder mental health, depression, anxiety, chronic health issues, adjustment difficulties, work-life balance, clarifying values and life goals, problem-solving, and communication skills.
