About Me

I completed my Degree Bachelor of Applied Social Science (Counselling) in 2018. While finishing my degree I worked with men and women with high mental health needs in the drug and alcohol space. I worked in this space for 2 years until opening my business called Open Arms Health. I have now been in business for 4 years.

I assist women through anxiety, grief, loss, and stress reduction, conflict management, and relationship building. The women I assist come from our sessions together, reclaiming their time, voice, values, and vision, creating love, leadership, and happiness through their lives.

I offer a safe space where women can come and speak about what is on their minds. A space with encouragement, support, and growth. One that is nonjudgemental and gives a woman space and time for herself. My empathetic nature gives women what she needs to move forward in their life.
You may be going through some loss or stress in your life and it's becoming overwhelming. No one around you is listening or can understand what your going through. I see you, I hear you and I understand how that feels. Listening is one of my highest skills, which I believe you may need right now. Give me a call or send me an email to see how we can work together.
warm regards,
Shawn Matthews

"Like it so far! I was wondering why I act the way I do sometimes, and my therapist has helped me uncover why I act that way, and how to accept it and grow. :)"

"So far, so good. I've really discovered things about myself that I didn't even realize were present. Like how my actions are influenced by my childhood. I really like interacting with my therapist, I only wish she would respond more frequently. Other than that, I think the explanations for everything were very thorough!"

"Shawn is the best therapist I have ever had. She is kind, caring and very attentive, as well as a superb listener. I always feel better after a video session. She uses techniques to help me resolve childhood issues that are very effective. I am so glad that I was connected with her through this platform."

"I've enjoyed my experience with online-therapy so much. The therapist I was matched with has been incredible and has truly been helping me so much. I've loved the programme and all the worksheets, its kept me on track with working on myself throughout the week as opposed to just in the weekly live session. I would recommend this programme a thousand times over! Very grateful to have found this."

"Loving the worksheets and all of the options I have to choose from. Although I have had only one live session I loved it and can't wait to have my second session. It gave me HOPE."

"I have been working with my therapist, Shawn, for about 2 months now and she has been a huge help during a challenging life transition I have been going through. Shawn is empathetic and kind and I am very thankful to have had her support during this time. I have tried other online therapy platforms and I really like the worksheets from this program and feel it has enabled me to make a lot of progress in a short period of time."

"Shawn is a wonderful therapist! She has helped my partner and I become a stronger couple, but she has also helped us grow so much individually! We are better communicators and listeners now. Shawn has helped us to understand each other better and has given us practical tips so we can get through conflict as team. I have applied much of her advice to life situations outside of our relationship too. Shawn is warm, caring, honest, and professional. She is everything I was looking for in a therapist!"

"Shawn has been sooo helpful. I was initially pretty intimidated by the idea of therapy but she made it so easy and comfortable right from the start. We now have the tools to work together and communicate effectively. I would recommend her for anyone in need. 10 out of 10 experience."

"I found Shawn at a hopeless time in my life. I had done therapy for year’s previous with not much improvement. Shawn was able to help me heal from a very serious symptom and bring hope back into my life. Every time we got off the appointment I felt more positive about my life and better able to cope with my struggles. She changed my life!"

I also appreciate talking with my therapist and always felt a sense of calm and hope after each session.
