My approach uses play -based techniques, CBT, and attachment work.
Being a parent or caregiver is harder than it's ever been for you. Your kids are at a challenging point in their lives and you know they need extra support. You also recognize you need to address the pain happening in your own life. Everything is confusing and you are desperate for clarity. The confusion prevents you from providing the best for yourself and your kids. You need help to put the pieces together and process what’s happening. With new understanding, you can make good decisions for your family and recapture the hope you lost. The first decision you’ve made is to open up to someone in a safe environment.

Play and art therapy allows us to listen and learn the issues and concerns of your child in their symbolic language.
30 years of experience working with children ages 2-25 years. I am honest, calm, fair, and a nonjudgmental therapist able to create real and meaningful relationships with children, youth, and their parents. I am a caring, fair, and a results-oriented type of person. I enjoy building a relationship that is honest, fair, empathetic, and positive for my clients because I firmly believe that it is through a supportive and non-judgmental relationship that the healing begins and therapeutic results are delivered. My goal is to help the child heal and learn how to cope with their thoughts and emotions

Do you ever lay awake at night wondering why your child is acting or behaving the way they are? Why have they become so anxious? How did they become so aggressive? I will help children and youth navigate through their emotions, worries and self-defeating thoughts in a fun and engaging style. I will teach how to regulate emotions through breathing techniques, meditations, recreational activities or help them with strategies to fall asleep easier at night. If your child struggles in school or you receive frequent calls from the school, I can help navigate the school system to assist your child or youth to be as successful as possible.

Many people wonder what is a “normal” amount of anxiety considering the current state of the world. Frequent hand-washing and social distancing cannot stop the panicky thoughts that flood our day-to-day lives and can potentially trigger pre-existing anxiety, depression, trauma that people are already facing.

I believe that Mother Earth is a garden and we are the flowers (her children) and that part of my purpose is to help those flowers grow. One of the reasons why I love being a social worker and what drives me to do this work is my own lived experiences. I am not only a survivor of narcissistic abuse and domestic violence, but I am thriving! What I find beautiful is being able to walk with folks on their healing journey for just a little while; creating that safe and nurturing space, that connection.

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 Peterborough or for a Peterborough 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 Peterborough, and play counsellors.
