Cavendish Dr., Burlington, Ontario

Mental health begins in infancy and childhood. Many issues in adulthood can be traced back to development in childhood. Learn the necessary skills to foster healthy parent/child attachments. The task of development involves mastering a number of milestones; emotional, cognitive and academic. Most work with children relies heavily on the involvement of the parent/caregiver. Learn ways to support your children to develop healthy ways to regulate emotions (e.g. anxiety/frustration/depression), problem solve and deal with relationships. (Psychological and Psycho-educational assessments are available.)

Registered Psychotherapist

Waterdown, Ontario

Being a parent is hard work, and it makes perfect sense that parents and caregivers need support at times! Along with working with older children, I have worked with families of young children (aged infant/newborn to six years old) for a number of years. I specifically spent 5 years on a specialty team that focused solely on the mental health needs of our youngest members of society, helping their parents and caregivers to become more confident in their responses to their babies and children. My goal is always to leave families with a greater sense of harmony, an increased ability to handle the big emotions using a variety of appraoches, and a greater ability to enjoy their little ones.

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.

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.

I am a former school teacher who has co-parented and worked with children around the world. I especially am interested in the happiness of children of divorce, or of two-home families. I have written the Imagine Program (click on View Profile) in order to help parents understand the world through the eyes of children, practise age appropriate parenting plans, and contribute to their children's success in school and life.
