Children often prefer play therapy and sensory based activities, and adolescents often prefer to just talk.
Are you worried that your child may find the transition back to school this fall difficult? Are you getting calls from the school and in need of support? Or are you the parent of a child with special needs and you are feeling alone? I have been working with children and adolescents my entire career and I have watched kids struggle when their needs are often unmet by overburdened systems. School based concerns such as behaviour outbursts, anxiety and poor academic achievement are often related to unmet emotional needs, anxiety or trauma. If we support the child or teen first, the learning will come. And they can have fun!

My ideal client is looking to process past hurts that are impacting how they show up in the world today. They may have stuff from their childhood showing up in their current relationships and they want to unpack that or they may have experienced a traumatic event. They would want to clear out the stuff that is preventing them from living their best life. They would want more skills to regulate and cope with their current situation.

As a clinician, I believe that the only limits are the ones we impose on ourselves. I believe that being accountable for our current reality, the good, the bad and the ugly, is paramount if we are to remain in the driver’s seat of our own life. I believe that insight is the key to unlocking unconscious patterns of thinking and being that keep us stuck. Finally, I believe that thinking and wishing won’t make change happen but taking action will. Let’s get started on shifting your perspective and get you going on the path to wellness. I want to help you transform what IS into what you WANT it to be.

Are you a new parent dealing with the overwhelming change to your life? Are you feeling very emotional, stressed, and having a lot of worry? Is being a parent causing you to feel disconnected from others or causing issues with your partner? You are not alone. Feeling stressed out, isolated and overwhelmed is incredibly common. I am passionate about helping parents navigate through this challenging time period to start feeling better and enjoying life.

Play Therapy Counsellors
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counselling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in North Bay or for a North Bay play therapy counsellor, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists in North Bay, and play counsellors.
