Maybe you find yourself facing some difficulties that have taken you off course and despite your best efforts, things don't seem to change. You are working hard yet things feel stuck and overwhelming. You know that if you could find yourself in a helpful conversation, it would give you the chance to catch your breath and consider new possibilities. This might mean learning different strategies or finding a new way to look at the problem or an opportunity to try something fresh. You may not know exactly what you want, but you're ready for things to change. You want to feel back on track and enjoying your life and relationships again.

Children and youth often experience strong emotions (anxiety, sadness, anger, fear) that are the roots of their behavioral challenges, self- and emotion disregulation, and other adjustment issues. These issues negatively impact their quality of life. Through play and art therapy, I facilitate and witness the unfolding of children's lived experiences. I help them to explore and express their thoughts, emotions and memories that may not be easily expressed using words. Through interacting with their personal symbols in the play or their art, children gain self-acceptance which is the bridge to healing the inner pain and trauma.

I use play and art to facilitate my counselling approach with children. I focus on teaching children coping skills to manage intense emotions. Many children struggle to allow space for both positive and negative emotions. Some people find it difficult to feel any positive emotion such as joy or excitement and others find it difficult to sit with negative emotion such as anxiety or sadness. The reality is, it’s healthiest to be able to feel a broad range of emotions, including the positive and negative.

I work with clients who struggle with "regulation difficulties". When your "motor" is running automatically, too fast or too slow, it is very difficult to respond efficiently and thoughtfully. My clients struggle to be present, are unable to respond appropriately in times of stress, and cannot maintain a direction in life. Some of my clients have difficulties such as Complex Trauma, attachment issues, depression, anxiety and ADHD. This can happen to men, women, children and teens. Learning to be regulated can improve one's ability to focus and to learn, to be able to manage one's life and have deep meaningful relationships.

Oppositional Defiance Counsellors
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These counsellors can help with oppositional defiance in M4R or provide counselling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in M4R, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in M4R.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in M4R are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in M4R you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in M4R and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in M4R or family therapy in M4R.
