Referral concerns may include (but are not limited to): Difficulties related to child abuse or neglect, attachment concerns, single-episode traumas, psychological impact of medical-based trauma, self-injury, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, adjustment difficulties, grief and loss, anxiety-based regulation concerns, and aggression.
I work with children and adolescents struggling with trauma or regulation-based concerns, and their families. Trauma-informed care strives to create physical, psychological, and emotional safety for individuals with every contact. Trauma-informed care moves away from a "what's wrong with you" perspective and seeks to determine "what's happened" and how best we can move forward collaboratively in a safe, strengths-based way.

My specialties include anxiety, depression, parenting, child behavioral issues, relationship conflict, addictions, grief/loss and stress.
Getting connected to a therapist can be hard. I ask you to contact with basic information, your availability and a phone number and I will connect with you (please advise me if I can leave a message on any phone contact you provide and/or if I can respond via your email provided (this allows a quick response). When we connect we discuss your needs, my qualifications and our working together. My approach to counselling is informal/goal focused. Taking on only a few clients allows me to genuinely focus. Rates are per session and results of change are noticed within four sessions. Counselling is a safe place to be honest and share with a professional who genuinely has concern and the ability to walk you through the change needed for you to be healthier/happier. Connect if I can be that help for you.

I have a unique background of over 30 years experience working with young children, adolescents and their families. I offer a variety of client centred psychotherapeutic services specializing in individual and family therapy. My relaxed play-based approach helps children explore difficult emotions and situations. I use a strength-based approach helping adolescents building their self confidence, self esteem and coping strategies. When parents feel capable and they are better able to understand their child's individuality the potential risks for mental health concerns decrease for every family member.

Parenting is not just about navigating the day to day responsibilities of raising children. It's also about managing dynamics between partners as they navigate the complexities of child-rearing. Each parent brings their own upbringing, beliefs & expectations into the mix, creating a rich tapestry of perspectives. However, when these perspectives clash, it can create discord & tension in the relationship. Suddenly, what was once a seamless partnership feels disjointed, with communication breaking down & disagreements escalating. Parenting therapy offers a supportive space to explore these challenges

Society tells us becoming a parent should to be natural, joyful, and will happen within our desired timeline. For some there is truth to this, but many parents are left disoriented with the gap between their expectations and reality. We are urged to pour into our children, give them all of our attention, but also find time for ourselves and our relationship. The challenges of this stage of life can leave parents feeling lonely, overwhelmed and with a sense of personal failure. You might wonder who you even are anymore and if things will ever change - If you are struggling, you are not alone, and it doesn’t have to stay this way.

The need for connection emerges from our very core. Though we are social beings, when our core is wounded or in pain, we may instinctively attempt to protect ourselves, even from our nearest and dearest companions. Whether we’re going through a particularly challenging time in life or facing our usual day-to-day stressors, counselling can be an important part of a healthy lifestyle. I work with children, youth and adults learning to: respond skillfully to emotional distress; adjust to expected and unexpected life transitions; process grief and loss; and manage parenting demands and expectations.

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

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 Guelph build great relationships with the child and the parent.
