I am passionate about parenting, and how we raise children to be resilient, independent, kind, compassionate, and responsible young adults. I help parents of typical children as well as those with special needs, by providing evidence-based tools and strategies. I also assist with mental health issues that emerge for parents. I teach you how to manage conflict in your home, parent as a team, advocate for your children at school, and calmly address parenting issues that trigger anger and frustration. I help you support your children in a loving manner while maintaining boundaries and limits.

My name is Sarah. I am a Registered Social Worker who specializes in supporting children , teens, and their families. I have extensive experience working with clients ages of 6-21 years old and utilize an integrative and collaborative approach that is tailored to be age appropriate. It can be challenging as a parent to see your child or teen struggling and not feel like you can take the pain away, or as a child /teen to not feel seen or heard. My goal is to create a safe, collaborative space where together we can build upon existing strengths and find alternate ways to work through those tough emotions.

When a child struggles in school it can be frustrating for parents, but also damaging to their self-esteem. A psychoeducational assessment provides valuable information about learning strengths and needs. Parents often pursue testing when their child struggles with the development of reading, writing, or math skills. Attention, behavioural, and emotional concerns are also reasons. Contrarily, parents may want to investigate enhanced programming for advanced children . Results can be empowering for students who were once confused about their abilities, as well as advise students and parents about future academic and vocational pursuits.

Over 20 years, I have specialized in supporting individuals and families through separation and divorce, children and teens coping with social, emotional or behavioral issues, and individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, and stress management.
The cornerstone of my work is in building relationships where clients feel listened to, validated, and able to build trust in the therapeutic process. Together, we start with identifying areas of concern as well as personal strengths, and work towards finding strategies to move towards positive change.Through the process, there is a wonderful opportunity for learning more about yourself and those around you. Talking about issues that may be causing you distress is an incredibly important step in building life-long skills of self-awareness, self-care, and self-compassion.

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.

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.
