As an Art Therapist, I work primarily with children of divorce who struggle with anxiety, depression, self-regulation, and social and behavioural issues related to changes in the family system. I practice Art Therapy using a Humanistic strengths-based approach while providing skill-building as a psycho-educational component to strengthen resiliency. Additionally, I believe that being creative (not necessarily just artistic) is an integral part of a prevention model to improve children 's mental health and actively promote creative expression in my life, my studio and my community.

Children and adolescents need support now more than ever. As an Expressive Arts Therapist, I am passionate about helping young people tap into their full potential. Through my holistic, whole- child approach, I see your child for who they are - the child behind the diagnosis, the child behind the disappointing report cards and the child behind the pointing fingers of their peers. I will take my time to get to know your child , to gain their trust, to develop a relationship, and when they're ready, work from a resource-oriented perspective. Every child has so much to offer... it's just a matter of helping them to uncover it all.

Taking the first step to begin therapy can be very challenging. I strive to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to discuss/explore any issues you are experiencing. By deepening your ability to be introspective and self-compassionate, we can explore any negative thinking patterns/habits that may be interfering with you making changes in your life. My style is warm, compassionate, empathetic, and collaborative, but also direct and solution-focused. I specialize in working with children /teens/young adults, and have experience engaging even the most reluctant young people to promote positive change.

The best child therapists in Toronto build great relationships with the child and the parent.
