Hi, I'm Kim. I have worked with people across the age span, individually and in families, for the past few decades. I am currently working with people who are interested in finding ways to better cope with strong emotions, complex trauma, mood disorders and building stronger connections in their relationships. I have a long history of working with children, teenagers and young adults in particular and am often described as conversational, humorous and creative in my approach. I believe in being transparent, flexible, nonjudgmental and creating safe spaces where people feel heard and connected.

Child Counsellors
Child psychologists in Ottawa, 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 Ottawa 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.
