Utilizing play therapy, I help children recover from trauma and process their pain. I use art therapy to build resilience and inner strength, and engage interested parents in building long-lasting healthy relationships with their children. Children feel easily connected with me and I help you strengthen attachment with your child. I work well with the following childhood disorder: ADHA, autism, trauma and abuse, separation anxiety, issues with bullying, OCD and adjustment disorders. My play therapy room is conducive to every form of art therapy and very welcoming for children. I also support parents in re-parenting and building healthy boundaries with their children.

Critically important with youth is to build rapport through an interest shared by them and often this is better achieved through conversation. I work with kids who are verbal and who are open to counselling, usually youth or teens. Once rapport and trust are established it becomes possible for the child to share information very sensitive to them, and this openness allows problems such as depression, anxiety, ADHD to be understood and addressed.

My approach to counselling children is rooted working with the parents. Incorporating principles of attachment theory, I recognize the significance of secure emotional bonds in a child's development. I aim to address any attachment-related concerns with parents directly which will support the child in developing healthy connections. I tailor interventions with the parents to meet the unique needs of each child. Through exploration of emotions, coping strategies, and building resilience, children benefit from a supportive environment that facilitates their emotional growth and overall well-being.

Children are resilient. They have an amazing way of adapting to change in the world around them. When a child has lost their ability to adapt or is no longer able to cope and manage their world, a multitude of behaviors can manifest. This can be scary and frustrating for the parent or caregiver and can be equally difficult for the child. We understand and appreciate the struggles that children face today and how challenging parenting can be. We will work together to uncover the underlying issues and recreate harmony for both the child and/or parent. In a warm and understanding environment we will use a variety of techniques, customized to your child'd individual needs.

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.

In V2P 1S1 - Nearby to Mission.

Because children and youth show their problems in different areas of their lives and in a variety of ways, and because children or adolescents who function well at home may have problems in another setting, such as in the classroom or with peers, parents or caregivers, may feel confused and anxious about meeting the needs of these children or youths. Some young people may show signs of anxiety or depression, while others may exhibit aggression, get in trouble with the law. I work together with these young people with mental health or addiction problems including their parents to agree upon evidence- based interventions that equip them to function better at home, in school and with peers.

Registered Clinical Counsellor - BCACC certified

In V2S 6E6 - Nearby to Mission.

When working with young children, I do so as a secure attachment specialist. I typically work not just with the child(ren) but the family as an entire system of support and healing. My goal is to support the parent(s) of the child in learning secure attachment practices until the child begins to seek them out for support and guidance. When appropriate I co-counsel with my colleague Jamie Sabourin who also specializes in working with teens and children.

I offer children a safe place to express their feelings and provide guidance to support them in managing experiences that they are finding overwhelming. I focus on developing a healthy and trusting connection first and foremost and use a strength based lens in which children can feel empowered to grow. Children often need validation from a safe adult so being able to connect and listen non-judgementally is of crucial importance to me in this work.
