Bill Huggins, Ph.D.

Therapist / Counsellor

In L6X 1K4 - Nearby to Maple.

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.

My speciality is in working with children and adolescents. At this time, I do not treat children under the age of 6. I am trained in providing play therapy as well as sand tray therapy.

Therapy for adolescents can improve the quality of life at home and have a significantly positive impact on the process of becoming an adult. When your adolescent has emotional or behavioral problems, a common thing you might hear from family members is “he/she will grow out of it with time”; sometime they do and sometime not. I strongly encourage families not to take their adolescents lightly by starting them with early sessions. They will get the necessary coping mechanisms that they will need to utilize in challenging times. Many parents visit my office for the first time feeling helpless and worried as to whether they are doing the right things, they are concerned things are getting from bad to worse. I’ve helped adolescent fine-tune their balance so...(view profile to read more)

Registered Social Worker

In M9A 1B7 - Nearby to Maple.

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.

In L4Z 2G7 - Nearby to Maple.

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.

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

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

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In L3T 4X1 - Nearby to Maple.

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.

Child Therapist

Jennifer Pinto, MSW, RSW

Social Worker and Psychotherapist

In M4K 1N8 - Nearby to Maple.

Teaching and strengthening children's ability to identify feelings and emotions is a building block to emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to be aware, understand, express and manage one's emotions. When children are given a positive space to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours together with balanced coping strategies, their self-esteem and ability to handle stressful situations increases. Parents and caregivers also need to learn and practice strategies to increase positive communication and connection with their children. Please visit my website to learn more www.jenniferpinto.ca

Regd. Psycotherapist: Individuals, Teens, Couples, Families

In M3J 2C4 - Nearby to Maple.

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.

Individual, Family and Marital Therapist

In M2M 4J5 - Nearby to Maple.

When dealing with young children I am quite successful because I am relatable, easy to talk to and have an informal approach. It's very important to listen when working with children and to gain their trust by not judging them and trying to understand where they are coming from. It's key to provide them with a safe and confidential space where they feel they can open up without fear of consequence.

Tara Koblitz, MSW, RSW, CPT

Registered Social Worker/ Certified Child and Play Psychotherapist

In M1P 4Y1 - Nearby to Maple.

As a Certified Child and Play Therapist, working with young children is my area of expertise. Children tend to play out the issues and themes happening in their lives using play instead of words. Virginia Axline, one of the early pioneers in this field, suggested that play therapy “provides an opportunity for the child to ‘play out’ his or her feelings and problems just as, in certain adult therapy, an individual ‘talks out’ his or her difficulties”. By entering their world through play I help children make sense of a sometimes frightening world. I utilize various many tools such as: sandtray, dollhouse, puppets, art supplies, lego, cars, emergency vehicles, and musical instruments.
