With young children who require support and counselling, we employ very specialized techniques depending on the child and their presenting concern. We support children in expressing their feelings, and will either talk or use art making tools, or employ both in this important first step. We also employ arts activities and play in all sessions with children to best engage them and integrate their learning. Art and play are wonderful tools to reach and connect to children.

While I do not generally work exclusively with young children directly, I work extensively with parents of young children. My goal is to educate, guide, coach, and support caregivers as they try to sort out the emotional and behavioural struggles of the ones they care for. Primarily psychoeducational in nature, my aim is to help cargivers understand the workings of the developing brain and how best to interact with it to give the child the best chance at optimal development.

Young children (4-7years) internalize a lot of feelings and trauma. Play therapy, art therapy and talk therapy must often be combined in order to assist them get to the heart of what has caused them distress and to heal. If the family allows it, I prefer to work in conjunction with families, churches (if present in the child's life) and schools when counselling very young children. Pre-teens and teenagers respond to an array of methods and modalities in counselling and are a pleasure to work with as they seem to benefit greatly from the opportunity to be the expert on their lives and their feelings.

Dan worked for 6 years as an elementary school counsellor and worked with over 450 children during that period of time, some of whom were as young as grade one. With the very young, he found the use of play therapy to be the most effective tool in eliciting positive change. He worked with a wide variety of individual needs, ranging from depression to anger management, but also worked with such group needs as peer mediation, bully-proofing and conflict resolution.

Parenting is no easy task. There is no instruction manual. To the contrary, it is often difficult to know what is and isn't effective. Tired of bargaining and reasoning with kids who want what they want, won't take no for an answer, throw temper tantrums or melt down? I work with parents to develop effective strategies, provide support and let them know they aren't alone. I have 4 kids of my own, so I know the territory. I also facilitate a 4 week course for parents of anxious kids for the Ministry of Children and Family Development. Contact me for more information.
