Rickey Miller, Ph. D., C. Psych.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In L3T 4X1 - Nearby to East York.

I often work with parents to help them with their young child's problems. When parents learn more effective parenting strategies, they are able to effect major improvements in their child's behaviour and well-being. Children often benefit from not being identified as patients. However, each case is unique. Sometimes a young child does need psychotherapy. I work with each family to find the right approach for them. Common problems include sleep and eating issues, tantrums, unwillingness to attend school, phobias, self-destructive behaviours, depression, and bullying. I help parents become more competent, decreasing the need for future psychotherapy and improving family relationships.

Children are a delight to work with. I love creating with children through art and then finding ways for them to express their story through the process. I work with children from about age 7 or 8, as I am not a play therapist and I do not have play therapy specific training (play therapy is generally seen as a preferred method with younger children). However I will help a child or teenager have a special space just for themselves to express themselves as they need. I have worked with children and teens around grief and loss, anxiety, parental separation, and abuse within the family.

Regd. Psycotherapist: Individuals, Teens, Couples, Families

In M3J 2C4 - Nearby to East York.

Children are our wise masters. They know and see everything, much more than they should. I encourage my young clients to talk about what they are feeling and to feel the feelings in their body, so they learn to trust their instincts. I create a safe, playful, non-judgemental space for children to share, this is done via play therapy such a drawing, sculpting with play dough and acting dress up. I gently encourage young children to talk about their families in order to help them better understand their feelings and emotions.

As a therapist, I practice "talk therapy". For children to participate or benefit from counselling or family counselling with me, it requires them to have a level of education and maturity which enables them to understand basic conversation and benefit from talking. Some young children who are shy or not confident in speaking with adults may be better benefited from another therapeutic modality offered by other practitioners such as art therapy or play therapy. That being said I have worked quite effectively with a number of precocious young children who have enjoyed talking with me.

Certified Clinical Counsellor

In M5E 1W7 - Nearby to East York.

If you are seeking to enhance your relationship with your children, support them through their own unique challenges or broaden your tool kit for coping with the many challenges that parenting can deliver, I can support you to be the parent that you want and intend to be. One of the most powerful ways to help your children's emotional well-being is to enhance your own emotional-regulation skills and sense of emotional well-being; children learn how to regulate their emotions and cope with difficult feelings and circumstances by observing their parents.

Do your kid avoid going to school, find it hard to concentrate, feel sad, anxious, or angry, have a hard time socialize with other kids, challenge authorities and break rules all the time? There is always HOPE! I use art and play therapy as well as supportive counselling to help kids express themselves and learn coping strategies to increase their self-esteem, manage their negative emotions, and improve their social skills. After completing counselling, they will be able to achieve better grades and improve relationships with family members, peers and teachers. I also provide training for parents to learn effective parenting skills to manage children's challenging behaviors.

It can be especially scary when a child struggles, because it can be so hard for them to communicate and as adults, we often want to protect them from the things that can hurt them. On top of that, we know that the struggles of childhood can go on to affect adulthood. Fortunately, through different types of counselling, such as play therapy and attachment therapy, young children are often able to find a means of communication and are able to express themselves and their struggles.
