About

In my individual private practice I work with folks of all ages to support their coping abilities, build greater strengths, and live their lives to the fullest. Together we explore the unique life they are living and in a co creative way explore future possibilities. At Ripple Effect Children's Services (Humber College partner) we work with an amazing team of professionals reducing children's anxiety, promoting strengths and resilience. If you believe that your child is beginning to struggle with challenging situations, has significant emotion regulation struggles or you want to equip them to better manage stress, we can help.
All services are delivered from a relational, strength based perspective. Polyvagal theory and IFS are core to my approach. You are the expert on your life and what ways of working make the most sense for you. I can offer perspectives, guide conversations, and make suggestions for the possibility for change. Together we co-create the direction of therapy.
I invite you to contact me to explore your interests and areas of need. After a phone/email conversation we can discuss if working together makes sense. I'm always happy to ensure you get the information you need if we decide not to proceed. You are welcome to ask me any questions you have to assist in your decision making process. All the best, Lisa

A Balanced Life's Groups

Various groups for children to reduce anxiety.

The Ripple Effect Program is specifically designed to give children and youth the skills and knowledge they need to better manage fear and worry before they turn into a more serious concern. This will also help them be better prepared to cope with future challenges as they arise. Through our 12 week educational group program, participants learn specific, individualized techniques to take control of their own thoughts, feelings, and bodily responses to stress, and develop personal tool kits to help transfer this learning to their daily lives.

More about this group

Parent Information Nights

Periodic sessions held throughout the year. Includes two group educational workshops for the parents/guardians and one individual session for the family. This will be a useful first step for those families who wish to learn more about anxiety, and how best to support their anxious child. The individual session is intended to help create a plan for strategies and any future supports or programs that may be needed.

Parent Support Group

10-week parent/guardian group program focusing on assisting parents/guardians of a child dealing with anxiety. The program offers information and strategies to help parents/guardians in supporting their child. Participants learn from each others' successes and challenges. The program is appropriate for any parent/guardian wishing to learn more about anxiety in children and youth, and will be useful as a follow-up, or as an alternative, to our Anxiety Education Program for Children and Youth.
