As a Registered Psychologist and a Registered Art Therapist with training in Play Therapy , and a background in Addictions Counselling, I have the ability to combine a unique blend of approaches to meet your needs.
If you are in a caregiving role, (professionally and/or personally), you may be finding that you spend most of your time devoted to others and don't feel you have enough resources to then care for yourself. However, even the strongest and most caring people need support. My treatment specialty is burnout, compassion fatigue and secondary trauma. My sessions focus on activities that move you forward in your present, everyday life. I can help you slow down, tune into your needs, and begin meeting those needs within our sessions.

I specialize in working with children, adolescents and adults through several modalities (talk therapy, CBT -mindful and Trauma based, art therapy, play therapy , Sandtray and sensory work).
Humor, genuine compassion and empathy are necessary for healing - especially the humor part! Which is why they are benchmarks of my clinical practice. Combined together, the healing force created is a 'game changer' in people's lives. My approach to psychotherapy is person centered (congrats, you are unique! Your therapy should be too), grounded in attachment theory (relationships are our friend! Don't argue...everyone needs a friend) and developmental psychology (we all go through life changes, change suucks, but it's unavoidable). All this guides our path to wellness. Heads up - standard credential speech ahead...

Play Therapy Counsellors
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counselling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Edmonton or for an Edmonton play therapy counsellor, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists in Edmonton, and play counsellors.
