The best part about what I do is watching parents and children find joy in being together. I love to work with parents who feel disconnected from their children and lost about how to support them. After families have worked with me, I hope they leave with a deeper connection to each other.
I use developmentally appropriate counselling modalities to bring healing to children and involve the parents as active participants in their child's therapy because I believe parents are the most important people in their child's life. I bring a wealth of specialized training experience in family play therapy modalities.
Parents need empathetic helpers on their team. I want to walk alongside you in exploring what specific needs your child may be trying to communicate with you through behaviours. Parenting is a challenging journey. I would love to be part of this stage with you.
