Working with the Ministry of Child and Family Services last year in Child and Youth Mental Health in Campbell River last year revealed a particular passion of mine to work with kids. During my time there I created group care for kids in middle school suffering from anxiety, I did grief counselling for children who lost a parent, helped kids with depression, trauma, ADHD, borderline personality disorder. I helped kids with self- injurous behaviour, who experienced abuse, who had autism or were in the midst of pursuing a diagnosis. In my private practice I've helped kids with ADHD, with family adjustment , and with anxiety. I also have a child with ASD so understand what families endure.

As children use play as a natural means of expression, the most effective mode of therapy for children is play therapy. I have developed Holistic Expressive Therapy, an integrated approach which addresses the unique physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual needs of a child. I tailor design carefully chosen play and other expressive materials to help your child bring into the open the behaviours and blocked feelings that have interfered with healthy emotional growth. Through this active expression, inner strengths are discovered that can help your child deal with past experiences and cope with present situations. The result is an increase in confidence and strength to meet challenges.

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.
