Braeside Dr. S.W., Calgary, AB T2W 2V5

Children are just little people. They hear what you hear, they see what you see and, though differently, they understand and their little hearts get broken too. When little hearts get broken they need a safe place where they can come and, right along side of mom, learn what it means for both of you to care for their heart. Come, and learn how our Christian counselling and play therapy can both heal your child's heart and empower you to continue that healing.

Children receiving therapy with Lurline will benefit from advanced training in a number of play and creative arts strategies, as well as parent-child attachment. Play methods are more naturally designed to assist children with processing their emotional difficulties. Children feel more comfortable dealing with their strong emotions using play and art. The expectation of working through difficult themes using traditional talk therapies that were never designed with children in mind is rarely successful. Parents who bring their children in are kept informed, given suggestions for how best to support their child, and often may be asked to become involved in therapy sessions to improve success.

Masters in Social Work; Registered Social Worker

Ranchlands NW Calgary and Cochrane, AB, Calgary, AB T3G 1E4

Prusik works with children experiencing emotional & behavioural problems. By teaching children and parents simple emotional regulation skills ( "grounding") and by practicing these skills, children are able to create healthy neural-pathways (pathways in the brain). Prusik exposes children to various fun activities such as riding a bike, gymnastics, obstacle courses etc., and helps them regulate their emotions (i.e. anxiety, anger etc.). Prusik may incorporate board games and family activities into sessions. Each child is unique. Prusik creates a therapeutic approach that best fits each child/youth. For more information:

Usually children are seen in the context of being seen with their main caregivers (usually parents). Helping the caregivers to be able to overcome areas they struggle with as a part of helping their children can be the most effective help for the children. As the caregivers overcome their struggles they can be in a better space to help their children. However, sometimes the help for the children needs to be provided at the same time as help is being given for the caregivers. Help for the children is then provided and the caregivers may observe how the help is given to be able to implement some of the techniques themselves.

I work with children as young a five years of age and find that it is necessary to have parents' actively participate in therapy with their child. Children typically respond well to therapy when they understand that they are not the problem and they can see that their parents are learning and trying new skills and strategies too. Children are developmentally primed to learn new things with the right skills and strategies they make great progress.

Young people, like adults, experience stress. It can come from a variety of sources including doing well in school, making and sustaining friendships, or managing perceived expectations from their parents, teachers, or coaches. Some stress can be positive in that it provides the energy to tackle a big test, presentation, or sports event. Too much stress, however, can create unnecessary hardship and challenge. Adults can sometimes be unaware when their children or teens are experiencing overwhelming feelings of stress. Tuning into emotional or behavioral cues is important in identifying potential problems and working with your young person to provide guidance and support to successfully work throu....

Occasionally a child's response to life's pressures may become severe, and the parents' attempts to help their child may be unsuccessful. Children who have experienced considerable change in their lives or who have survived traumatic events need to express and understand their feelings. Stress related to a major life transition such as parental divorce may be impairing a child’s ability to cope and function. Separation anxiety, life-threatening medical problems, and repeat encounters with bullying are common difficulties for young children entering therapy. Through the therapeutic use of play, children are given the opportunity to express their feelings naturally, and safely, thus enabling the....
