nice to meet you

Shauna Wallace, BAS, MA, RP, CCTP-I

Hi, my name is Shauna and I’m a Registered Psychotherapist who specializes in empowering folks experiencing disordered eating and exercise, body image issues, trauma, and life transitions. 


I first became interested in supporting mental health when I was volunteering at my university's peer support network. I felt incredibly connected to supporting young adults in their mental health journey. Outside of school, I dealt with my own personal stressors by attending group fitness classes, the one constant for me through the ever-changing landscape of my early 20s. After some time, I became a group fitness instructor myself, finding solace in fitness as an escape from anxiety. I began to notice the restriction, overexercising, and emotional eating prevalent within myself and around me. This self-work and unlearning inspired me to pursue professional training and open a private practice dedicated to help others to experience this transformation of reclaiming their relationship with food and their bodies, as well as navigating other stressors like life transitions, trauma, and general anxiety and depression.


I look forward to creating a space together that best meets your needs.

beyond psychotherapy

On a personal note, I still LOVE teaching group fitness and enjoying all kinds of delicious food, except now these parts of my life support a life of abundance instead of a life of restriction.


You’ll also often find me hiking outside with friends and family, catching up on the latest season of Grey’s Anatomy, or connecting with other like-minded professionals on social media.
