Child Therapist

Cally Farr, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

7 - 1140 Fort Street, Victoria, British Columbia

I help parents deal with young children in a way that brings more loving and acceptance into their family. I often ask, what is your young child trying to tell you by his or her acting out or misbehaviour or intense emotions. In this way, we can explore together how the child's needs can be met in more positive ways, and how you can model more helpful behaviour and feelings to the child.

Child Therapist

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

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Available for Online Therapy

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.

Child Therapist

Oscar Trad-Pizarro, MA, RSW, CCC, RRP, SEP

Registered Social Worker and Certified Canadian Counsellor

550-2950 Douglas St., Victoria, British Columbia

Using my unique approach, I work with young children within the context of their family's involvement to work towards the goals they have identified. My approach allows young children and their families identify the issues of concern and apply the use of consequences and environmental accommodations as the primary ways to address those issues. Consequences and environmental accommodations provide opportunities for young children and their families to experience safe, age appropriate and effective ways to address their issues of concern.

Child Therapist

Erin Laird, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

201-1600 Bay Street, Victoria, British Columbia

With the exception of abuse or extreme attachment trauma, the support I can provide for young children is directed at the parents. As young children are rarely in control of their environments, and are unlikely to have developed the appropriate Executive, Language, Emotional Regulation, Cognitive Flexibility or Social Skills for talk therapy (even augmented with play, art and music), parents are supported in collaboratively working to help develop these skills in their children, instilling perceptions of capability, purpose and significance, and personal power. Parents are encouraged to be kind and firm, emphasizing respect and connection.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

It is always a pleasure working with young children and their families. Working in collaboration with parents, I help children understand their experiences and develop strategies for coping with life situations. When appropriate, part of my role is helping parents sort out how to best support their children's development. I have seen children for a number of concerns including separation and divorce, death of a parent, anxiety, trauma, and behaviour issues.

Blending families can introduce difficult child raising and couple issues for you. Please contact me for experienced, practical and understanding help.

Child Therapist

Sarah G. Flynn, RCC, MA, MREM

Registered Clinical Counsellor

#7 - 1921 Fernwood Rd, Victoria , British Columbia

Children are remarkably sensitive to their environments, particularly to what is going on for their parents. Often, when a child is acting out or seems troubled somehow, it is a reflection of what is going on at home. Young children do not yet have the capacity to put into words what their needs and feelings are. For this reason, in therapy I use various types of play and art activities to decipher what children are experiencing and may need from their caregivers. I work closely with children's caregivers to help them gain insight into what their children feel and need. I assist the caregivers to develop secure attachment bonds with their children.
