Children are experiencing serious mental health challenges early in life these days. Whether they have personality issues (low confidence/self esteem issues, need for control, perfectionism ideals) that make them more susceptible to stressful emotional moments or whether they are facing external life factors (school, family, friends, peer pressures, bullying issues) that result in a breakdown of their ability to function successfully, our children need just as much support as adults do. And it is only with the support and encouragement of the significant adults in their lives that our children can overcome these challenges and build the resiliency they need to grow into capable adults.

I love working with children and am passionate about helping them grow into bright and confident young adults. I use play therapy, art therapy and music to help children get comfortable and feel safe, which in itself, is often therapeutic. In addition, I give importance to working with the parents, and keeping them in the loop, as I believe that this relationship is extremely important for the healthy development of the child.

Childhood is a precious time in each persons life; yet children often experience challenges that are hard to understand and even harder to resolve. My approach to working with children is collaborative and caring. I value the opportunity to work with children towards a happy and fulfilling future. I work with parents, foster parents, and caregivers to provide counselling that integrates all aspects of their child's life. I want each child I see to have the opportunity to flourish, and I work with all areas of the child's environment to ensure flourishing is made possible.

Through play and art therapy, I am often able to engage young children and explore their problematic thoughts and feelings. I take great pride in working with the individual strengths and weaknesses of children to help them better process difficult situations and change their behaviours. Supportive parenting strategies and psychoeducation are often vital to long-term success with children.

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T5N 3N8 - Nearby to Nisku.

Most of my experience working with young children has been related to trauma. I find that children are incredibly resilient, and although they may struggle with language there are many ways to provide healing. I use interventions that involve creativity, providing a variety of avenues for the child to express his or her experience. I also use an EMDR with both children and adult clients. EMDR is an integrative approach to healing that allows for treatment to be tailored to the specific needs of the individual, while address the physical, emotional, and mental needs of the client. This approach allows healing to take place on all levels of functioning.

Most people find this as helpful as seeing me in person. You must live in Alberta, however, as this is the only province in which I am licensed to practice. With 31 years of experience, I have expertise in several approaches. My main approaches include cognitive behaviour therapy, psychodynamic therapy, humanistic therapy, and existential therapy. I am also familiar with solution focused therapy and oth

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.

In T9E 7H8 - Nearby to Nisku.

Therapy for young children provides an opportunity for the parent to work together with the child toward healing. As a parent, your way of being with your child can be a tremendous healing influence, especially when your child is having difficulties. Your place as their primary attachment figure is respected and supported. Tuning into your child's perspective, listening effectively, and being aware of what they need takes skill and careful attention by both counsellor and parent. Child therapy is thus an opportunity to create a safe place for confident and comfortable interactions that support healing for the child.

Registered Psychologist

In T5T 6M1 - Nearby to Nisku.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T8A 6H2 - Nearby to Nisku.

With very young children, we feel that it is more important to spend our time working with parents- helping to build their capacity and strengthen their parenting skills rather than having a psychologist work directly with a very young child. We coach parents and teach them new behaviour management strategies that they can implement at home.
