Keystone Child and Family Therapy offers specialized counseling in play therapy for children ages 2-18. Play therapy is a child-centered approach to counseling based on developmental principles, allowing a child to engage in the counselling process in their most natural form of communication: play. Play therapy is an effective form of therapy for a variety of issues including: behavioral issues, social-emotional issues, trauma, abuse, grief and loss, developmental concerns, autism, ADHD, transitional issues, divorce and separation, attachment concerns, adoption, etc. Parents are considered important partners in the process and so family therapy is also used in combination with play therapy.

As a Certified Play Therapist, I believe play is a key mechanism in communication for children. Through play, children can explore and express their inner thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Play Therapy provides a forum for resolution of a number of childhood developmental disorders and mental health struggles including trauma. I provide services to children as young as 3 years old and up.

Registered Psychologist

In T4P 3Y2 - Nearby to Olds.

In my therapeutic work with children, I focus on connecting with, and at times uncovering, the strength inherent in each child. Using an approach that is founded in attachment, mindfulness, and play, I guide children towards positive thinking and clarity of mind, which allows children to experience in themselves the ability to be resilient, strong, curious, and optimistic. I work collaboratively with the caregivers and parents of each child to ensure maximum success.
