Loving, good-enough parents are the natural vehicles through which children learn to engage the world. When children are said to "need help," it is generally the case that their adult caregivers need help, too. Psychotherapists who work with children do well to engage parent figures in the process. The impact of therapy upon children is strongly influenced by the parent-child system. That said, children commonly encounter personal issues which their parents are unprepared to help with or manage. Childhood depression is among the most under-diagnosed medical conditions. Children who learn to effectively engage in therapy enjoy lifelong benefits from this important experience.

I provide therapy for children ages 12 and up at this time, and family therapy for parents in regards to parenting issues. I work from a family centered approach, where identifying family patterns and working on whole system change is important. My goal is to help support a family in creating positive, healthy family dynamics that help support the growth of the child, and create a stable home environment.

Research shows that Animal Assisted Therapy promotes attachment, empathy, self regulation, problem resolution & self-efficacy. Children need to feel secure for healthy development and to fulfill their potential as human beings; however, their are no guarantees this will happen. Children will often attach to an animal when people no longer feel safe. This positive relationship with the horse can be the bridge to a strong relationship with the therapist, caregivers and other adults in the child's world. Children are also naturally drawn to play- this is their "language" so to speak. It is also their way of healing. Horses are very social creatures and are by nature playful sentient beings.

Child Therapist

Eva Holden, R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

#780 10339 124 Street NW, Edmonton, Alberta

I work with children and adolescents ranging from age 3-17. While teenagers are able to engage in "talk-based therapy", my approach with children is play-based as play therapy offers children a way to express and process the thoughts and feelings that they normally may have difficulty putting into words. Through a developmentally appropriate, play-based approach, your child will learn about and work through a variety of issues that they may be facing, such as: Depression, anxiety, anger, emotional regulation, social skills, low self-confidence, sibling rivalry, coping with change, bullying, and many others.

I am also familiar with solution focused therapy and oth

Doreen Foy, M.Sc.(MFT)

Registered Psychologist

#204 Princeton Place, 10339 - 124 St. NW, Edmonton, Alberta

Significant life events — such as the death of a family member, friend, or pet; divorce or a move; trauma; a parent leaving on military deployment; or a major illness in the family — can cause stress that might lead to problems with behavior, mood, sleep, appetite, and academic or social functioning. In some cases, it's not as clear what's caused a child to suddenly seem withdrawn, worried, stress, sulky, or tearful. But if you feel your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem or needs help coping with a difficult life event, it is worth checking. I have worked with children for 14 years and provide an environment in which parents and child feel at ease in exploring issues.

Child Therapist

Tamara Hanoski, Ph.D, R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

9690 182 Street, Edmonton, Alberta

I work with children from the age of 3 to 17. While adolescents are able to engage appropriately in more traditional "talk therapy," younger children do not have the skills to verbally share their feelings or experiences. Instead, they will often work through their issues in more symbolic ways, such as through play. Different types of play are used, such as sandtray play, dolls or puppets, books, art, storytelling, and therapeutic board games. While the child plays, I ask questions and probe for more information, in an attempt to assist the child to share feelings, resolve difficulties, gain a sense of mastery, and problem solve in a healthy manner.
