Raising children is a fullfilling but often challenging task. Managing children's behaviour and knowing how to best respond as a parent is not always easy. Whether your child is having difficulty coping with some obstacles in life or you are having difficulty knowing how to respond as a parent, therapy can strengthen both you and your child.

Child Therapist

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Therapist 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.

Registered Social Worker

When working with children, I use play therapy. Since play is fun, it makes it easier for children to confront what is bothering them. Play therapy can be used with children who are experiencing a variety of problems. I use a variety of different play therapy approaches and techniques in my work with children. I select and adapt interventions appropriate to the child’s age, interests, and treatment needs.
