Child Therapist

Rosalyn Best, MoC, MEd, RCC, CAC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Suite 16, 2138 East Kent Ave, Vancouver, British Columbia

I’ve worked with children and youth for all my career. Children do not want to be “talked down to”, they want to be taken seriously. They want to play. They will communicate their concerns through their behaviour, through art and play, songs and words. Children are part of a family unit. A child’s concerns = the family’s concerns. Belonging and attachment are key. I use a family systems approach to counselling children. Together, we will work to help each family member express their needs in the family, and how they want the family to belong together.

Child Therapist

Keisei Anzai, MA, RCAT, BCATR

Registered Art Therapist

659-A Moberly Road, Vancouver, British Columbia

Working with children first needs to build trust. Spontaneous art is encouraged. No psychotherapy takes place, but it will be replaced by play in-between the art. Questions in a curious manner will be asked about images in the art but in a narrative form [story form] in order to discover and uncover crucial keys to the existing problem. Different kinds of art materials would be provided especially to find an art medium that will suit that particular child is important. Work towards having some kind of family support and understanding for the benefit of the child.

Child Therapist

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Vancouver, British Columbia

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 kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Child Therapist

Naomi Kolinsky, M.Ed, RCC

Registered Clinical Counselor

1418-750 West Broadway, Vancouver, British Columbia

With young children I use a combination of art, imagination, play, and talk therapy to help them express their feelings and discover creative solutions to their problems. They will learn new coping strategies to deal with changes and situations over which they have little control. I also guide parents to learn new ways of supporting and relating to their children that encourage their sense of security, growth, and well-being.

Child Therapist

Aaron Lautzenhiser, R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

3195 Granville Street, Suite 202, Vancouver, British Columbia

In my practice, I work with preschoolers, school-age children, teens, and young adults. I conduct psychoeducational and neuropsychological assessments for learning disabilities, giftedness, ADD and ADHD, organization problems, memory difficulties, developmental delays, FASD, head injuries, and other challenges. I also provide Cogmed training for attention and working memory difficulties. Cogmed can help children with ADD, ADHD, learning disabilities, and executive functioning problems. Cogmed can help your child to improve their short-term memory, stay on task, and concentrate in school. If you’re concerned about your child’s learning, I look forward to hearing from you.

Child Therapist

CaraLynne McLean, M.C.P., R.C.C., B.C.A.C.C.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

706 Queensbury Avenue, North Vancouver, British Columbia

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.
