Get to Know Shawna

Hi, I'm Shawna!

 

I'm a Registered Nurse specializing in mental health and crisis treatment but my true passion lies outside the hospital and involves coaching others to feel and live as their best selves.  

 

Through my private practice, Be Free, I offer coaching programs, classes and retreats to help individuals develop wisdom and skills that can provide greater peace, balance and happiness.

 

I thrive on using a unique approach, combining knowledge in mental health with EFT tapping, meditation, energy healing and spirituality.
