Child Therapist

Nick Zwaagstra, MC:AT, RCAT, CCC, RCT

Registered Counselling Therapist / Registered Art Therapist

3621 Dutch Village Road, Halifax, Nova Scotia

I have extensive experience using Art Therapy (and play methods), conducting clinical assessments and providing therapeutic treatment for children, youth and adults with a wide range of mental health concerns, and issues such as child development, children in care, mental health, trauma and with bereavement support. I think that creativity in counselling and art therapy, in particular, with its use of symbolic language and opportunity for indirect narratives is very apt for helping children through transitions. It allows safe expression of feelings and promotes resilience and the capacity to cope. The art also serves as a visual record for reflection and communication.

Whereas I do not see young children in person in my practice I can be of assistance with many parenting issues. These may involve questions about raising and disciplining and motivating your children. You may be coping with issues concerning the impact of divorce , separation and remarriage on your children. Blending families can introduce difficult child raising and couple issues for you. Please contact me for experienced, practical and understanding help.

Pamela Rubin, CCC, MEd, RCT-C

Canadian Certified Counselor

260 Wyse Road, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

Parenting young children can be a stressful challenge. We may find ourselves reliving our own childhood traumas, or acting in ways we promised ourselves we never would. I offer encouragement and effective strategies. You ARE a GOOD parent! I assist people to magnify their strengths, gain perspective, and increase effective parent/child communication. I help people exhale, relax and connect to the humor and confidence parents need.
