About Sharise Sealy-McCallum

Sharise Sealy-McCallum, Guelph Counsellor for Youth & FamiliesMSW, RSW, Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist

I have 7 years (and counting) of experience in helping children, youth, and families in-person and in an online therapy setting.  My interest in working with kids goes back to the beginning of my professional career: I got my Bachelor’s degree in Child and Youth Care (BACYC), followed by a Master’s in Social Work (MSW).  Since then, I have worked within school board settings and in private practice.  Although I support clients of all ages, I specialize in counselling children and youth.

Some of the many challenges that I can help with include:

Providing support to people who have experienced racial trauma of all kinds is a common thread throughout my personal and professional life. I help with race-related concerns and challenges often faced by individuals who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous or Person of Colour). In my practice, I work from a strength-based, client-centered, and anti-racist, anti-oppressive approach that may employ Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy.

As we experience challenges to our mental well-being, we tend to be torn between conflicting emotions, needs, obligations, and identities. However, learning to navigate these challenges takes constant and proactive discussion and reflection, and I intend to support you on that journey. I look forward to getting to know you, learning about your unique situation, identifying challenges that we both might have experienced, and working to make the challenges smaller and smaller over time.
