I have worked with children as young as 5 years old who have seperation anxiety, been abused, have FASD, or come from divorced and/or seperated families. These little people are sponges of their environment and display through spontaneous action what they are trying to cope with in their life. My approach is to help them cope with their emotions through play/art, breathing/relaxation exercises, and listening to their story in order to make sense of thier reaction. It is also imperative that I bridge the gap between keeping the child's confidence while communicating to their caregiver how to help the child on a daily basis.

With my many years in education I am able and skilled at working with and relating to children and adolescents. Childhood should be a time for healthy growth and development. For many children and teens, it is a time of great emotional stress. Children react to stress in many ways including withdrawal and acting out behaviors at home and school. I am here to help children and families learn the life skills necessary to be successful and happy. Family counseling may help to promote better relationships and understanding within your family. There is no shame in needing support. Family counseling during a divorce, or a child experiencing trauma can help all of you find some peace.

My approach when working with children under 12 years old is to ensure that they are provided with a positive and safe experience of therapy. I prefer to tailor therapy to their developmental stage by creating a fun environment that may involve play, art, and activities during sessions. Discussions about their interests, skills, and special talents and abilities are at the forefront of our therapeutic conversations to help build confidence and feelings of positivity. My background in relational therapy may invite parents or siblings into sessions as well. Please contact me for a free consultation if you are interested in determining if I would be a good fit for your child/children.

I have 20 years experience working with children experiencing a variety of life stresses. I use art and play to help children express their emotions and explore solutions. I meet with the child then include the parents to ensure everyone is on board with improving the emotional health of the family home. Home should be a safe place where you can relax and rejuvenate to conquer the world. Educating children and their parents about emotional and behavior solutions, lets them talk through problems to enjoy each other.

Understanding and exploring emotions can be difficult for anyone and lead to complex and often misunderstood reactions. Working with children to support learning about mental health and how and why we feel certain things is so important. I use many types of therapy to support children's needs including expressive arts therapy, and include family engagement when possible and desired. I am here to support your child's and families needs and have a lot of experience supporting children struggling with anxiety, social anxiety, depression, self-esteem difficulties and much more.

I believe that being a parent is a very tough job. Parents often feel powerless and seek to control their children with shame, guilt and fear. I believe that children need firm, consistent rules and clear, transparent rewards and consequences to guide their behaviours. I am very creative in designing methods of child management that are particular to your child and your family.

Children can be impacted by transitions and traumas in their lives. When they don’t know how to cope, the stress can build up. I provide safe and compassionate counselling where the child can talk about their feelings without the fear of being judged, better understand why they feel this way and learn strategies to move forward. I help children express their feelings and emotions through the lenses of play and art therapy combined with cognitive behavioural therapy for children. examples of common problems that can be addressed in my therapy: -bullying -loss/grief separation/divorce -depression, anxiety and panic -attachment disorder -behavioural challenges -learning difficulties

Working with children involves a combination of art, play and novelty. A child's way of problem solving is very different from an adult's. One element that is key, is to ask the child how they view the problem and what they think would make it better.Children are creative and spontaneous and often have similar solutions to their problems. It is important for the therapist to support their ingenious and inventive resolutions. The next step is communicating these ideas to parents and to help them put it into action.

Children explore and make sense of their world through imagination and play, so why should therapy be any different? Your child will experience upbeat, playful, and engaging ways to tackle even the most difficult/serious problems. My hope is that our sessions will be a place where your child experiences themselves as capable, knowledgable, and clever. And hey, let's still find a way to have some fun too! I've been told by many parents that their kids are so excited for the next session they can't wait to come back... A far cry from feeling like you have to convince them to do something. *Please note, I work particularly well with children from the ages of six years old and up.

In N6A 1M1 - Nearby to St Marys.

I work with children 5 years of age and older. Most challenges facing children are situational-environmental. My approach is based on what children require and respond to: respect, patience, calm and playful resourcing. Young children usually know exactly what their troubles are and need a safe, supportive, opportunity to express themselves. Given secure trust, they are creative and open about collaborating toward realistic solutions. Essential to my work with any child is engagement with their primary care-takers as well as relevant collaterals involved, to ensure that a lasting "circle of care" is established.
