About

I am a Child and Family Therapist with two decades of experience helping children ages 4+ to develop or enhance their coping skills, tools and strategies to successfully manage life's challenges. I have a warm and engaging style that enables me to quickly connect with children, build a trusting relationship, and help children develop the skills and abilities they need to succeed. I've worked at various Children's Mental Health Centres in Toronto prior to starting a private practice. I would be happy to be a part of your child/family's journey and a catalyst to their change/success.
I have successfully helped children struggling with anxiety, depression, anger management, bullying, social skills, separation/divorce, and trauma. I use a variety of play based activities, games, books, videos, puppets and role plays to help children learn new concepts, develop insight and learn new coping skills. Learn more at www.leasidechildtherapy.com
I invite parents/caregivers to call me for a free consultation to discuss their child's difficulties/challenges and how therapy may be helpful to them or their child. I offer both individual child therapy as well as family therapy. Reaching out for help is often the hardest part -but then you've got someone to support/guide you on your journey .
