I can work with children over the age of 6 to process difficult feelings that stem from situations of abuse, neglect or who have had a lack of consistency in their upbringing. I will utilize tools such as drawing pictures and I will use other objects to represent feelings to teach the skills to your child in a less traumatic way. I also work on the early teaching of anxiety reduction skills with your child to better allow them to cope with their feelings. I also believe in your involvement as a parent because you know your child best and all these skills need to be practiced at home with you and your child!

Through play, art, and talk therapy tailored to their developmental needs, children can express themselves freely in a safe and nurturing environment. Therapy helps children build resilience, develop coping skills, and understand and regulate their emotions. It provides a space for them to explore and make sense of challenging experiences, such as family changes, trauma, or school difficulties. By addressing issues early on, therapy can prevent them from escalating into more significant challenges later in life. Ultimately, therapy empowers children to navigate life's ups and downs with confidence and emotional intelligence, setting the stage for healthier relationships and brighter futures.

I have extensive experience working with young children and youth who are survivors of trauma and/or struggle with mental health. While I typically focus on clients 14+, I will gladly work with parents and their children who need support. I'll initially meet with the parent/guardian, and then parents are welcome to join initial sessions with the child if that is preferred. Parents are always part of mapping out plans for care for children/youth under 14.

I work virtually and in-person with children and adolescents. Parents have told me that their children are more emotionally regulated and, overall, happier, as a result of therapy. The initial session is free so there is little risk in reaching out to schedule a session to determine if I am a good fit for your child. I offer in-person therapy in Orangeville (Mondays) and Inglewood (Fridays and Sundays). I offer virtual appointments on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings as well as Sunday mornings and afternoons.

Based on the evidence-based research, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is typically implemented when working with young children. EMDR is adaptable and suitable to children as young as two years old and has shown to be effective in treating a number of presenting concerns in children including anxiety, depression, trauma, pain and sleep disturbances.

Children’s behaviour is often a reflection of their internal experience. Including parents/caregivers in therapy can provide the opportunity for parents to help their child better understand their emotional experiences, to facilitate helpful communication, and to provide an environment that fosters both security and independence. I work with individuals, couples, children and families. Book a free consultation to explore if we are a good fit for therapy.

Instead of working directly with young children, our practice believes that the best work can be done by supporting parents. When we can learn to regulate our own emotions, heal our own wounds, manage conflict in our relationships, and learn to understand the needs and messages underneath our children's behaviour, we can help create the change we hope to see in our household. Our therapists know that parenting isn't easy, and have a deep compassion for this role. We can create a space for your process the difficulties of parenting, as well as help you find ways to intervene and cope better. If you want support now, book a consult or session today! www.kaleidoscopecounsellingco.com
