Hi everyone!
My name is Shondalee Eisnor and I will be filling in for Michael Ross for the next year, to continue to provide your community with mental health and addictions counselling support. I have been working with the Nova Scotia Health Authority for the past 11 years as a clinical therapist. During this time, I have worked mainly with adults who struggle with a range of concerns such as addiction, depression and anxiety. Previous to this role I worked with children and parents, around issues such children’s mental health, parenting, grief and general family stressors. When not at work I am with my family, as a mom to 2 young busy boys and an old chocolate lab. This leaves very little time for down time, but when I can I squeeze in some time in the garden, a movie or reading a good book. I look forward to working in your community and meeting you. Please reach out by phone 902-521-7158 (cell) or 902-543-5400 (office) and leave a message, or email
