We have a play room set up for working with children. My approach is to meet the child at their level through art, talk, and play. Children may also be invited to sessions for family work as they are part of the family system. Some of the approaches informing my work with with children are Family Systems Therapy, Response-Based Approach, Narrative Therapy, and Play Therapy.

With young children who require support and counselling, we employ very specialized techniques depending on the child and their presenting concern. Using ONLINE tools like video conferencing, email and text supports, we support children (in school or at home) 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.
