Are you the parent of a struggling child, teenager or young adult, wondering what you could do to help them feel better? Does your child want to take care of their emotions but most of the time, their emotions take control of them? Are they struggling with an unhealthy relationship or high anxiety? Do they make a lot of impulsive decisions that they later regret? Or, are you a teen or young adult yourself? Do you feel like no one understands what you are going through? Do you want to feel truly heard? Have you tried different types of therapies and nothing seems to work?
I specialize in DBT. I am one of the few Canadian psychologists trained in DBT for Children (DBT-C). I am also trained in CBT and emotionally focused modalities. I offer services including individual therapy, parent coaching, teen/young adult and parentDBT groups. I also conduct psycho-educational assessments for academic, behavioural, social difficulties.
Imagine what it would feel like to be equipped to handle difficult situations. Together, we will make a personalized plan to get things back on track. I offer a flexible schedule to better suit the needs of my clients. I look forward to speaking with you.
