Academy Heath Centre, 4984 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke, Ontario

Parenting is challenging and if their was one parenting approach I would be a millionaire. Instead parenting demands matching parenting style with the unique needs of children. This is challenging as it would be much easier if we could say do X Y and Z. I spend time with each family and match the intervention to the needs of the child with the capability of the family.

When working with children, I use play therapy. Since play is fun, it makes it easier for children to confront what is bothering them. Play therapy can be used with children who are experiencing a variety of problems. I use a variety of different play therapy approaches and techniques in my work with children. I select and adapt interventions appropriate to the child’s age, interests, and treatment needs.

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.

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.

I am a former school teacher who has co-parented and worked with children around the world. I especially am interested in the happiness of children of divorce, or of two-home families. I have written the Imagine Program (click on View Profile) in order to help parents understand the world through the eyes of children, practise age appropriate parenting plans, and contribute to their children's success in school and life.

When our young children are struggling, the best route for support is to work with you, the parents first. Together we explore the challenges your little one is up against and we can discover new ways to support your child. If I can support you to provide the support for your young child, that's the smoothest route for them. While I may be fun to meet with, they really want you to guide them through the difficult terrains. However, if it makes sense to meet with them I draw on my rich training and experience in expressive arts, which includes the use of play therapy to faciliate change and healing in young children.
