I do not specialize in therpay for young children but I do help adults coping with the difficulties to raising young children. Parenthood is not as easy and most people think it might be. We learn parenting skills from our earliest role models, more often than not, our own parents or primary caregivers. This is not always a healthy relationship. This is not always positive parenting. A therapist like myself who has been educated in Early Childhood Developemnt and worked with young children for numerous years can help with the difficulties and stresses you might be feeling and help you to cope with it.

Children can often exhibit externalizing or internalizing behaviors when they are unable to express themselves or process/cope with their feelings and emotions. Therapy can be a safe space for children to make sense of their feelings through creative and engaging means. Depending on age, working with young children can entail working with parents on how to best support their child in what they are going through and to give parents a space to reflect on the kind of parent they want to be while expressing concerns or personal challenges they may be experiencing.

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.

If a family connects with me directly due to my past work experience, or if a therapist refers a family to me knowing my history in the field, I do provide limited space for families. I offer Emotionally Focused Family Therapy which has important engagement with parents/caregivers/guardians. Quite simply, I need you just as much as the child does for effective treatment! I offer avenues for connections and work towards "corrective emotional experiences" within the family. This actually goes on during the session---and beyond! Please do not hesitate to inquire if you feel I might be a fit for you.

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 use various creative commitment strategies to obtain commitment to children therapeutic engagement. For example, I use play therapy activities to engage children in key social-emotional learning areas to help them better support their mental health for life. This includes learning how to effectively manage stress, identifying emotions, emotion regulation, nurturing relationships, planning and problem solving, conflict resolution skills training, following daily routines, mindfulness meditation, staying positive, and feeling good about themselves.

At MCCG we offer counselling services that are aimed towards helping young children. Our therapists use different methods to encourage young children to be able to express their difficulties such as play and art therapy. Using these non-direct approaches help children to better discuss their own feelings and feel more comfortable with the process. This allows our therapists to gain insight into the unconscious mind of the child and help them process their emotions.

We have worked with children as young as 3 years of age. We have helped client deal with parenting issues as well as with trauma issues. Often, parents need help understanding why their children are behaving in the manner in which they are and how to help their children cope. Parents need coping skills too, especially when dealing with childhood trauma. With the children I have used therapeutic play as well as social stories. Children are very resilient and can give us all hope for healing.

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!

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.

As an adult therapist, I help parents cope w family issues. Patterns of disfunction are often unconsciously repeated. Whether you’re dealing with behavioral issues, common childhood problems, or serious attachment issues, it’s important to provide the stability, structure, and care all kids need to feel loved, self-confident, and safe at the same time parents need support with their challenges too!

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

Certified Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist

In L5B 3C1 - Nearby to Madoc.

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

In my practice I work with children in conjunction with the parents and sometimes the whole family. Children are often the 'canary in the coal mine' of the family dynamic and become mirrors of challenges individual members or the family as a whole is experiencing. As it takes a whole village to raise a child, it takes a whole family to help a child in distress heal. That is where my working with children begins, addressing the issues of the family.The family is the garden in which they grow, lets make your 'family garden' as healthy as possible so your children will thrive.

Having young children of my own and being a single mother I have come to know the difficulties children can face at home and school. Children experience numerous issues that impact how they act, feel or learn. Children can experience concerns at school, with bullying, family and health problems. Children also face difficulties with depression, anxiety, ADHD, self injury, eating disorders, disruptive behaviors, anger and sadness. The importance of learning healthy thought patterns at a young age can lead to a happy and fulfilling adult life, creating good interpersonal relationships, better self-esteem, communication skills, and confidence.

Although I don't work directly with children, I do parent/parenting coaching, which I believe is the foundation in helping our kids grow well and healthy, with good self- esteem and confidence to handle this life. Children learn. They are watching and listening, even when we don't think they are. Ultimately, they will be mad at themselves before they'll be mad at you. Validation is the key to healthy, content, and confident children. I can help you get better at that.

Play based therapy is an important aspect of connecting with children. I provide a safe environment for they to explore their feelings. The children I work with gain insights into their behaviour and the behaviour of others. They learn new skills and feel more confident and empowered in their lives. Children are unique and resilient people and with the proper skills and mentorship they will grow up to become adults who produce extraordinary results.
