Young children are a very sensitive group when it comes to counselling. In counselling with young children, we use play therapy, art therapy, and sand tray therapy. We believe it is through these therapies that we can work through deeper emotions with children and understand their stories. Sometimes, children are able to narrate their stories, and by increasing their insights through play and art therapy, we can help them re-narrate their stories. We also include parents in therapy by providing them with appropriate feedback to modify their behaviour toward their children or help their children modify their behaviour at home.

Critically important with youth is to build rapport through an interest shared by them and often this is better achieved through conversation. I work with kids who are verbal and who are open to counselling, usually youth or teens. Once rapport and trust are established it becomes possible for the child to share information very sensitive to them, and this openness allows problems such as depression, anxiety, ADHD to be understood and addressed.

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.

Children often suffer from anxiety, depression and worry. I work with children of all ages, who are experiencing worry, anxiety, depression, ADHD, Aspergers/Autism and separation issues. I can also assist with parenting issues. Angry outbursts, tears, worry about being alone are all indicators that your child may be suffering from anxiety or depression.

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 love the non directive art and play therapy techniques I use. Children come to enjoy their sessions with me as I work to establish a relationship with them built on trust and positivity. Children are not pushed to open up but rather reveal their thoughts and feelings when they are ready. Often it takes several sessions to build the trust necessary for openness to happen.

I have over twenty years of experience in working with children. I understand that children process information at different rates and often in different ways than adults. My Counselling approach is gentle, warm and age and stage appropriate. I help young children and elementary-aged children to manage their emotions, build friendships, organize their school life, improve their academics, cope with anxiety, understand death, grief and loss, as well as deal with family dynamics e.g., separation/ divorce. I use play, art, narrative and cognitive behavioural therapy as some of my therapeutic tools. I really enjoy working with my young clients and seeing how happy they become!

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.

Children are such a joy to this world and are the future in the making. Whether your child is struggling in the moment with attention, anxiety, self-esteem or in another area, their resilience and energy provides them with a unique perspective that is often open to growth. If you are a parent that is wanting to provide the best support for your child's needs, it can seem overwhelming with all the information that is shared around parenting. We can work together to determine your family values and support yourself or your child in this journey.

In v5k 1b4 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

Much of my experience early on as a psychotherapist was with teens (12-18). I found the most helpful tool was creating a safe and judgement free environment where they were able to explore themselves, their inner thoughts, and their values, free of pressures from the outside world. Once establishing a safe relationship, we were able to identify emotions, what they mean, and how to express them in a healthy way. I often bring parents into the counselling room to be a part of the process too. By offering compassion for their own struggles, and a bit of knowledge on the developing brain, we can work together as a team to help everyone reach their full potential.

In V3X 3E6 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

Children are so precious to me, and because I have two of my own...I know how precious they are to you too. I work together with my specially trained (psychiatric dog) named Target, when I work with children. Not only does Target help a child to feel at ease, but there is something incredibly special that happens when a child is cuddled up to a dog with whom he feels both warmth and softness. It doesn't hurt either that 'Target' is a great intensive for children wanting to return. (Which is often a concern) Also my relaxed style, experience with working as a Youth Leader, and Directing Children's productions, gives me an edge on making sessions fun, hip and creative.

By creating a playful atmosphere work is done in the context of having fun and amusement. I use mini figures/toys and pebbles/stones of different shape and size to invite children to create their own 'internal landscape' on specific topics, as well as take part in 'sculpting exercises', where they can easily visualize and demonstrate different roles and positions within a family system.

Registered Clinical Counselor / Registered Social Worker

In V5G 1V8 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

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.

Social Confidence Life Coach

In V5H 3Z7 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

Is your child bullied or isolated from others? Is your child reluctant to go to school, has trouble making friends, or seems withdrawn and lonely? Many children have trouble with self confidence, anxiety or social skills. Improving self esteem, emotional regulation, and social skills deficits in the younger years reduces difficulties later. We all want the best for our children, and as a parent myself I know how it can hurt to watch your child suffer and not know how to help. Find out how your child can be helped by in-person counselling, online coaching, or online educational programs.

In V5C 0G2 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

I work with both young children and youth. During my approach I use a mix of CBT and art therapy. The primary concerns with children are youth are often anxiety and low mood resulting in school concerns, peer relationships, and parental relationships. I find that often children are unable to express how they feel. Because of this I use art therapy activities so they can use their creative outlet to discover how they are feeling and learn coping techniques and skills.

In V3M 3P6 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

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.
