It would be an honor to support your child or teen and collaborate with you as their caregiver.
I work with children and youth using Synergetic Play Therapy. Through this framework, I support my clients to integrate their body sensations, emotions, and thoughts through play. Play in the language of children. When a child engages in play, they are able to explore the experience of the world in a safe and comfortable manner. I meet children where they are at and connect in a way that feels authentic and meaningful for them. I support children to develop emotional regulation, learn skills to better manage the challenges they face, and build on their strengths and resources.

I frequently work, though not exclusively, with clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, life transition and career direction. Seeking help can be stressful. I offer a safe space for clients to work on their issues and support them in ways that are just right for them. We co-construct the clients' desired future. Making changes can be stressful for the clients. I seek to support the clients in working out their next small step forward. When I work with clients challenged with anxiety or depression, I will help them to understand the mechanics of anxiety or depression and to acquire skills to cope with anxiety or depression.

What would it take to live the life you imagined? Have you truly found your authentic self? Visit me at Aster Wellness Centre and we will explore these questions to consider your current path. We often have our sights set high but lose track of what is truly important due to unexpected obstacles such as immense anxiety, anger, depression, fear, grief, and personal traumas. We don't ask for these things, but they are occasionally placed along our path, and can easily trip us up. The feeling that we are stuck or unable to realize our potential sets in.

Not all Binges are a Choice. The exact cause of BED is unknown, but chemicals in the brain, family history and certain life experiences may play a role in Binge Eating Disorder. BED often begins in the late teens or early 20s. BED affects slightly more women than men. About 40% of those with BED are male. I believe we “know” when our eating behavior is off and that dieting will not resolve the underlying anxiety. There is help, I’ve been there.

Teen Counsellors

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
