Register Clinical Social Worker

5627 Main St Unit 105, Niagara Falls, Ontario

Children experience life, for the most part, in two places being home and school. When a child begins to struggle in either environment or both, counselling can be very effective. Our services work from a "multi-systemic" approach, which means, with proper consent, we collaboratively engage parents, grandparents, teachers, schools, previous counsellors, and any other systems that know the child in order to best assess and develop a treatment plan. Counselling Niagara also assists the parents in engaging and advocating appropriate services to support the needs of the child.

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Registered Psychotherapist and Consultant

Available for Online Therapy

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.

Individual, Couples, and Family Counselling

327 Scott Street unit 2, St. Catharines, Ontario

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.

"My son was bullied at school for 3 years. I could see he was at the point he would not go to school and was becoming very isolated. We got so scared and thought the worst, a friend gave us Kathryn's name. Kathryn saw him and taught him about bullies and why they do what they do. He soon had confidence, stood taller and wanted to go to school every day. What a difference it made in our son once he had understanding. Thank you for saving our son!!" Rachel
