I currently support young children by providing parent coaching. I am a certified Connect Parent Program facilitator and am experienced coaching parents through the work of Dr. Ross Greene, author of “The Explosive Child”. When working from an approach that helps support children's parents in a strengths-based, non-judgemental manner, children are able to make positive gains in their challenging behaviours and mental health concerns. Parents benefit from feeling heard, supported, and understood. This is a family systems approach that ensures that all family members benefit from positive changes.

Children, like adults, can be affected by anxiety, stress, pressure and self-esteem issues. It can be very challenging for children to balance a busy lifestyle of sports, school, friends, and personal growth. It can also be very challenging for parents to watch and support their child as they struggle. We use child play therapy as a great tool to support young children in expressing their inner thoughts and feelings, while also creating tools and strategies for how they can cope with things better. We will also work with the parents, as needed to better understand their child and learn tools on how to support them.

When working with children it is important to treat them with respect, communicate clearly with them, and listen very well. Often, we find that a child's behaviour is a reflection of what is going on in the family dynamic. We look at what the child is reflecting back to the family. Also, we work closely with parents to support them with family dynamics and provide parenting techniques that may work well for their specific child.

There are fewer things more challenging, and yet more rewarding, than parenting. Seeing our children grow and develop right before our eyes can be a source of delight, but it can also be something that creates stress and despair – especially when things aren’t going the way we want them to. The tension in our homes that our children can create can overwhelm us, and sometimes it may seem easier to do what works in the moment (threatening or yelling!) not realizing how that can make things worse in the long run. However, not being able to parent the way we want to can come down to a simple concept – we don’t have an effective game plan, based on proven principles, that is guaranteed to work!

Self Regulation Therapy is a gentle mind/body approach aimed at diminishing excess activation in the nervous system. It uses somatic techniques which are simple for children to understand and not impeded by language or other developmental concerns. This approach allows children to integrate overwhelming events and bring balance to the nervous system.

Everyone struggles at times with focusing, being patient, and managing emotions. We all have aspects of our lives that we find challenging, where we struggle with being the best versions of ourselves. Yet, what if we had learned at a young age how to create space between the input of an experience and the output of our reactions? Learning how, in that space, to process the experience, the physiological sensations, and the emotions it evokes? That’s the guiding motivation in my work with children. Combining powerful emotion regulation techniques with playful/art-inspired therapies, I assist children in developing a ‘toolkit’ of skills for handling the stresses life throws at them.

Depression, loss, anxiety, bullying, familial changes and other challenges impact children in dinstinct ways that differ from adults. Moreover, many factors impact how an individual child is able to handle these challenges. While I am the therapist, you as the parent are the expert on your child. Therefore I work with you and your child to co-create a treatment plan that is specifically designed to help your child learn how to cope with and express the strong emotions and behaviors that accompany life's challenges.

Underlying many children's behavioural "problems" lies an emotional need - for connection; perhaps to be seen, heard, comforted, or protected. My approach to counselling young children is by supporting parents and caregivers, so that they can feel more secure in their ability to support their children. As a registered "Circle of Security" parenting program facilitator (and Mum of 3 busy kids), I believe that recognizing our children's emotional needs doesn't have to be as hard as it seems. Together we can bring your own needs and triggers into awareness, and practice new ways of responding that can rebuild and strengthen your connection to your kids - no matter how old they are!

I am trained and experienced in working with Children and Youth. This is especially helpful when engaging the younger members of families. I often use expressive techniques, play therapy, and cognitive behavioural therapy when counselling children and youth. I aim to offer expertise to parents who are concerned about the best ways to support their children / teens and to manage behavioural issues by working directly with Children and Youth to help them understand the challenges they face and to learn new ways to confront and conquer them.
