I believe children are very resilient and I find that sessions with children and their parent(s) or guardian(s) are often highly successful within a relatively short period of time. My approach is to build trust so that the child feels safe with me. They will learn new coping strategies to deal with situations or changes that are outside their control. I also help parents to learn new ways of supporting and relating to their children that encourage their child’s sense of security, self-esteem and growth.

I offer adolescent and children depression treatment which may include individual therapy as well as family therapy and coaching or therapy for parents. My work with parents can assist those who are looking for ways to improve their relationships with their kids and establish a greater connection and mutual respect. I can also be of assistance if you or your child is in crisis, feeling out of control or experiencing thoughts of suicide. We have as much to learn from our children as they do from us. If you are in need of some support and guidance in your role as a parent, please give me a call.

Bev loves children and uses fun and play as she works with children. Adlerian techniques help Bev understand family dynamics so that Bev can help parents understand how to better interact with their own children. Bev also works directly with young children helping them to grieve, or to learn how to manage their own feelings in better ways, The homey environment of the office and the gentle interaction causes children to love to come for counselling; children are often reluctant to have counselling come to an end. Bev's philosophy is that what children need most is that their own parents are equipped in learning how to hear them, how to invite co-operation and how to problem-solve together.

Children are amazing, wonderful, and energizing people! Children today face many issues - and we often forget that being a child is no easy task. Young boys' aggressive behaviour may in fact be signs of high anxiety. A young child's outbursts in daycare or school may be responded to with the very action we are trying to avoid teaching. I am a strong believer in Dr. Ross Greene's model that Children Do Well If They Can. I take great hope and strive to practice the models outlined in the Collaborative Problem Solving technique. I believe that punishment does not work. It will only frustrate the child, and trap parent and child into a power struggle. I am passionate about helping kids!

My style and approach is one that readily engages children and youth in a trusting and safe relationship. I use directive activities to address issues such as anger, trauma, stress reduction, social skills and self-esteem. Play based activities are used to engage otherwise resistant children to help them verbalize their presenting issues, reduce their anxiety and encourage self-disclosure. The children and their parents walk away with effective tools.
