Child Therapist

Tanya Elez, PhD, R. Psych., RMFT

Registered Psychologist, Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

210-552 Columbia st, New Westminster, British Columbia

I am a registered family therapist and strongly believe in working with young children in the family context. Family therapy has been demonstrated to be an efficient method for handling behavioural problems, normal life transitions, child's difficulty regulating emotion and so on. This is a collaborative process in which family members and the therapist work together in order to support the young child's development and their desired changes. Family therapy work can often be accomplished in a fewer number of sessions.

Janine Ray, MA, BA, ATR-BC, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

With young children who require support and counselling, I employ very specialized techniques depending on the child and their presenting concern. Using ONLINE tools like video conferencing, email and text supports, I 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. I work with kids with ASD in connecting with their emotions. I employ arts activities and play in all sessions with children to best support them and their needs. Art and play are wonderful tools to reach and connect to children.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact or 877-606-6161.

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.

Registered Clinical Counsellor, Clinical Traumatologist

5050 Kingsway, Second Floor, Burnaby, British Columbia

Therapy and counselling for young children is a unique and delicate process. I have experience and expertise in working with young children in a safe, relaxed and healing way. I believe that children are highly resilient and intuitive and therapy can be very effective and rewarding for them. As an adjunct to my approach, I offer intensive support to parents in gaining understanding and insight into their child's behaviors, even if they are highly difficult to manage. I also welcome any and all families with children who have mental health diagnoses as I have expertise in that area as well. Contact me for a free consultation to see if I am the right fit for you and your child.

I love working with children, we have fun with toys, colouring, art work, and games to help the child. This is called play therapy and it is different than any other kind of therapy. Children usually act out their emotions rather than talk about them as adults do. I usually meet with the parent(s) at the first appointment and then either later at that appointment or at the next appointment, I meet with the child and the parent and eventually work into play therapy. Often the child's play mirrors the anxiety or stress that the child is dealing with.Play therapy helps children get better, feel more secure and confident to be able to grow up happy and healthy.
