Is your teen struggling? Are they having trouble thriving in school, at home, or in their relationships? Do they need someone outside the family they can talk to? I’m Tim, and I help young people navigate the complex world of being a teenager. With me, young people can expect therapy grounded in respect, encouragement, humor, as well as evidence-based techniques. Whether it be anxiety, relationships, anger, or family issues, I work with teens to find out the root causes of their mental health challenges, provide a trusting and empathic ear, and find solutions that work for them and their family. ***Please note - I only work with kids ages 12 and up.

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.

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.

Sometimes children and young people (and their families) may need extra support if they are finding it difficult to deal with or understand their emotions and/or behavior. Counselling children and young people involves helping the child to develop a positive attitude to life, recognize their strengths and express themselves. It does not involve making decisions for the child, imposing beliefs on them or preaching. Counselling may be provided to children and young people on their own, or it may be provided to a child as part of a family (family counselling).

In V3H 4T3 - Nearby to Squamish.

I have worked with young children for the majority of my career, specifically in a school setting. My primary goal in working with young children is establishing a safe, caring, trusting and fun environment in which children are able to comfortably be able to clearly articulate their emotions and feelings. Helping young children become aware of their behaviors, feelings and emotions are often key in guiding them further, and implement coping mechanisms to help them manage their presenting concern.

In V3L 1B1 - Nearby to Squamish.

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.

Counselling or therapy with young children creates a healthy relationship between the parents and the children, as well as a healthy connection with other relationships such as peers and teachers. This type of counselling and therapy empowers children, improves their self-esteem, their ability to do well in school and any activity they may undertake in their life. It also helps to make them more resilient in life, to trust themselves and therefore able to make healthy choices without fear.

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 Counselor / Registered Social Worker

In V5G 1V8 - Nearby to Squamish.

I have worked with many young children over the last 30 years and have developed tools to help them to express themselves. I encourage children to work through issues in a manner that is supportive yet enquiring, all the while allowing the child to lead. Young children are able to reap the benefits of brain training with Neurofeedback (NFB) and work through issues with desensitizing hurts through EMDR. As well, when utilizing the skill of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), I offer many child friendly approaches such as games and drawing and have weighted blanks and animals to help comfort children with sensory integration / over stimulation challenges. My office is child friendly.

Children need to feel that they are an important part of the family. A better understanding of your child and his/her unique desire to possess a specific “place” in the family will help to unravel how his/her beliefs about who he/she is may be affecting their reality and subsequent behaviours. Children may not possess the tools required to problem-solve effectively thus will turn to acting out. Providing a child with effective problem-solving techniques, self-esteem, trust and a sense of being understood is important for inner development.
