Whether it be you or a loved one, most of us have experienced some form of struggle or loss. In today’s fast-paced world many of us are also juggling the competing demands of work and home life, both of which have become further complicated by technology. We live in a world where we are more connected, yet lonelier than ever. For those with children, we are inundated with parenting advice, leaving us questioning whether we are doing enough, or doing it right. Children or not, most of us are not tending to our emotional health and overall wellness the way we want to be.

"Children have very deep feelings just the way parents do, just the way everybody does; and our striving to understand those feelings and to better respond to them is what I feel is the most important task in our world." -Mr. Rogers. Sometimes, big feelings or difficult experiences can be hard for children to express using words. Art and play tap into the languages that kids naturally use as they grow and begin to understand their environment, and can help provide an outlet for kids to express themselves.

Parenting can be hard. Social media, gaming, peer dynamics, school and mental health diagnoses impact children and teens which can lead to challenging behaviours that are difficult for parents to understand and respond to. At the same time, today's parents are dealing with their own life stressors (work, finances, relationships and mental health concerns) that can further challenge positive family functioning. Thriving Families Counselling provides support to parents and their children in achieving personal wellness goals and helps to foster positive change and understanding in the family as a whole.

I work with both children and parents to help them build healthier and more connected relationships. I have a special interest in children with behavioural problems and defiance.

Child Counsellors
Child psychologists in Kitchener, ON provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Kitchener build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
