-Over 15 years’ experience working in a supportive role with individuals and families-


Shelly Teske-Hulan is the owner and operator of Teske Counselling Services. She obtained her Master of Arts Degree in Counselling Psychology in 2006 and became a Registered Psychologist in 2008. With over 15 years’ experience working in a supportive role with individuals and families, she has developed a deep understanding that each person’s story, experiences, gifts, talents and potential are unique. Prior to private practice, Shelly worked in a setting that allowed her to provide one to one and group support to people affected by brain injury. This work led to an interest in brain and body connections, trauma, and how physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and environmental stressors can affect the brain and body. Shelly has been studying and practicing in the area of trauma and issues stemming from traumatic incidents for several years. Early in her career, Shelly worked as an elementary school teacher both overseas in Papua New Guinea and locally in Alberta; she has thrived in connecting and working with a wide range of age groups and varying cultures.

Shelly currently works in a private practice setting and is passionate about supporting others as they continue to work toward their goals of personal wellness and healthy living. Shelly believes that all people have opportunity to overcome and be strengthened by life challenges. Her compassion for others, belief in every individual she works with, along with her spiritual and family values contribute to her authentic approach as well as her work ethic that is grounded in equality, dignity and respect for others.

Shelly specializes in areas such as depression, stress, anxiety, relationship or work-related challenges as well as trauma. Traumatic experiences can, but don’t have to, contribute to the development of trauma related stress disorders such as acute stress disorder (ASD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other mood and emotional disorders. Shelly is a Certified EMDR therapist and utilizes many additional therapeutic orientations to assist people with their challenges and concerns.
