Growing up can often bring forth many difficulties, especially when it is so difficult to explain what it is that is bothering you. In therapy with children, I focus on creating a positive environment with children in which they are able to share with me what it is that they like or enjoy doing, and believe me everyone has something they like, to help expand their understandings of themselves and move past the difficulties they are experiencing in the moment. It has been my experience in working with children that they have all of the tools and abilities to help themselves, but they sometimes just need someone who can help them figure out what to do with their tools and abilities.

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.

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.

Young children are faced with many issues and challenges including divorce recovery, anxiety, depression, ADHD, addictions and others. The approach taken is not only a cognitive approach but a practical “hands on” , “activity based” exercise approach. Pet therapy, art therapy and solution and strength based methods are used for the child in order to reinforce certain cognitive methods of thinking. As a professional, I have had extensive training and a lengthy amount of experience (16 years) in dealing with all ages including young child to youth to young adult. Possible other topics include goal building, personality type, career exploration, safe coping strategies and many more

Finding a therapist for a young child is difficult; you want to find the right fit for your family as well as someone your child can connect and feel safe with. When working with children, rapport (the trust in the therapeutic relationship) is at the core of healing. I take the time needed to develop this rapport during my first introduction with your child, using targeted expression therapy to get to the root of his/her concerns. This often involves talking or drawing pictures of feelings and giving a name to the 'problem'. I also practice within a strict family integration approach, building the core strengths of your family while working alongside your child on the path to wellness

Therapist / Counsellor

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.

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.

We were all there once upon a time and can you put yourself back in those shoes? Children change as they grow and we need to grow as well as parents. We need to develop ourselves in the ways we understand our kids otherwise they can out grow us, leading to issues outside of our scope and capability. Ideally we can grow faster in parenting skills knowledge and understanding than our kids do!

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 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.

Counselling for young children can address challenges with behaviour and emotions, trauma, stress, self-expression and problem-solving. Children can face many stressors including bullying and other school stressors, as well as family-related changes such as divorce, a move, illness and death. I include many modalities in therapy with young children, including music, art, play and role-playing.
