There are fewer things more challenging, and yet more rewarding, than parenting. Seeing our children grow and develop right before our eyes can be a source of delight, but it can also be something that creates stress and despair – especially when things aren’t going the way we want them to. The tension in our homes that our children can create can overwhelm us, and sometimes it may seem easier to do what works in the moment (threatening or yelling!) not realizing how that can make things worse in the long run. However, not being able to parent the way we want to can come down to a simple concept – we don’t have an effective game plan, based on proven principles, that is guaranteed to work!

Children are in a constant state of growing, and the patterns and practices that they start now will affect their trajectory for years to come. It is important to help children identify and articulate their emotions early. By doing so we give them a good base for their emotional health and regulation, and set them up for successful relationships down the road.

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.

Self Regulation Therapy is a gentle mind/body approach aimed at diminishing excess activation in the nervous system. It uses somatic techniques which are simple for children to understand and not impeded by language or other developmental concerns. This approach allows children to integrate overwhelming events and bring balance to the nervous system.

I am trained and experienced in working with Children and Youth. This is especially helpful when engaging the younger members of families. I often use expressive techniques, play therapy, and cognitive behavioural therapy when counselling children and youth. I aim to offer expertise to parents who are concerned about the best ways to support their children / teens and to manage behavioural issues by working directly with Children and Youth to help them understand the challenges they face and to learn new ways to confront and conquer them.

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.

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.
