Hi, I'm Shelbi!

I am completing my Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at the University of Calgary and am thrilled to be joining the team at KORU Psychology as a practicum student September-April 2024/2025.

My approach to counselling centres around collaboration, the exploration of intersecting identity development, self-empowerment, and leadership. I value a systems perspective to behaviour and aims to create a safe and inclusive environment for individual clients, groups, and teams.

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) through the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC), a Certified Mental Performance Consultant ® (CMPC) with the Association for Applied Sport Psychology, a professional member of the Canadian Sport Psychology Association (CSPA), and a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) through the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I am the co-founder of Snodgrass and Duff Performance Consulting and Counselling Inc. and have been working in the field as an applied practitioner for over seven years. My formal training is in the areas of mental health, addiction and recovery, and performance psychology. 

 As a former elite swimmer, I am passionate about the field of performance and am a strong advocate of mental health being the foundation of mental performance, as evidenced in my work with Team Canada athletes and various provincial organizations and post- secondary institutions within British Columbia.

I enjoy traveling for business and personal reasons whether it be presenting in an academic/professional conference or exploring a new city. Outside of work, I value time spent with family and friends. Together we enjoy trying new restaurants, fitness classes, the outdoors, and attending music events. 

Take the first step towards confidence and new beginnings.
