I place the upmost importance on offering a child a caring, trusting and feel safe environment to open up in. I treat young children ages 4 and up. Every step within the treatment approach that I take is discussed thoroughly before each session with you (parent or guardian/caregiver). Some of the issues you may have as a parent that I work with; anger/mood issues, low self esteem, eating disorder or symptoms, behavioural, anxiety, depression, learning challenges, parents parting ways. Every step within the treatment approach that I take involves you as a parent or guardian/caregiver. It is so important that we work together closely for your child’s health, & happiness & overall well being.

Having trouble with your child (6-12 years old) who is acting out? Don't know how to handle a situation and don't know if what your're doing is the right thing? Parenting is hard and does not come with a guide book. It is the most important job in our lives and yet the most challenging at the same time. I can offer you concrete and practical tools to help better manage your child's behavior. The goal is to connect with your child so that they will want to cooperate with you. If you succeed in connecting with your child, you will find that you are yelling and punishing less. I help parents be more efficient and have more peaceful households by using strategies that work.

I currently work with children 8 years of age, and older. Working with young children requires a very specialized set of skills, as therapy must be engaging and fun, while still being effective. In order to ensure that my young clients connect with the process, I build fun into everything that we do. Through the use of drawing pictures, role playing, story telling, playing games, etc - I am able to connect with young children, thereby helping them to fully engage with, and benefit from, the therapeutic process.

Certified Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

In L5B 3C1 - Nearby to Georgetown.

Children learn by trial, error and parental guidance, and when faced with new situations or expectations, emotions will surface as a normal reaction. Young children have limited communication skills, and often a temper tantrum is the only means to communicate that they need help. However, when severe emotional symptoms develop into an unhealthy pattern, parents should seek professional help. As an Expressive Arts therapist, I enter the child's world of emotions and thinking through play, art and music. Children love to play. It is their language of communication. Let me offer you my help to explore goals, solutions, coping skills and support for your child. 905-842-3626

Registered Psychotherapist (Q)

In N1H 3W5 - Nearby to Georgetown.

Young children look to their caregivers to guide them navigate this world and seek support during distressing moments. Parents that are able to tune-in to their children are able to pick up their child's cues. From time to time, children get caught in a negative behavioural cycle and seek their parent's attention in a negative manner. In counselling children, I support them to develop awareness of their needs and I teach them ways to seek support from their parents in a positive manner.

Through the use of play, art, or sandtray, children can begin to communicate their inner worlds. This form of communication, also provides a safe way of externalizing feelings that may be too overwhelming to talk about directly, but also a vehicle to make explicit that which a child cannot find language to express. My hope it to support your child to safely identify and express their inner realities; act as a safe container for this to occur; better understand the positive and protective intent of the challenges they experience; and support them to experience a healing and reparative experience in therapeutic sessions.

I have taken some wonderful classes by Nancy Reidel-Bowers, known for her contributions to the world of family and child play therapy. We learned in depth knowledge about child development, and applied that to relevant tools of therapy to engage the child at their level. Creative approaches: sand tray work with miniature figurines, music, drama, clay, art, painting, games, and so on. I played Wii video games for an entire session with a client once. He talked and laughed more than I had ever heard before; it was a beautiful moment in our relationship and in his therapy moving forward. I look forward to working with you and your child.

In L6X 1K4 - Nearby to Georgetown.

My children's work is very specific and focused. I work with parents who are having school issues. As a former teacher I know what buttons to push. As a father of 4 and grandfather of 7 I know firsthand the characteristics of children. My other focus is working with parents and lawyers to determine the desires of the child in custody or divorce proceedings. I work hand in hand with a female co therapist to ascertain the correct strategies and solutions. With parental permission I will use outside consult if appropriate.

There are a wide range of issues that affect children - they are vulnerable to many kinds of maltreatment and increasing stressors in our culture. However children often find it difficult to express their feelings and fears, which means that problems can be left undetected and unresolved. It is helpful then, to seek professional help if a child seems unhappy or distressed. With children, the construction of a trusting relationship between counsellor and client is especially important. Sometimes the counsellor will use puppets or sandboxes or play therapy to allow the child to tell their own story. In a safe trusting environment, the child can find their way towards emotional health.
