I am an AutPlay Therapy Provider, which is a play and behavioral therapy approach to working with children & families affected by ASD, ADHD, dysregulation issues, and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
All of our children are so very unique and constantly changing. Sometimes they need a helping hand to keep them moving along to thrive in their relationships and connections with others; or to develop strategies to support emotional regulation, social skills, life skills, anxiety reduction, concentration and focus, or processing of traumatic events. Throughout the process, parent/caregiver participation is a key component when it comes to working with children. My long-standing experience with neurodiverse children, youth, and their families will provide you with the reassurance you need to move forward.

I have been trained in various modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Play Therapy.
When people of any age go through stressors and trauma, it is common to feel like life is falling apart. In my own life journey I have experienced traumas, serious illnesses, and deaths of people closest to me. I know what it is to feel depressed and alone. I know what it’s like to grieve and feel like no one understands. My passion is to help people navigate through trauma and difficult situations, and feel a sense of peace and healing. Everyone’s journey is different and unique, so there is not a cookie cutter approach that’s right for every individual.

Whether a child is dealing with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, family separation or divorce, or difficulty regulating emotions, Play Therapy helps children learn new tools and develop resilience they can easily transfer into their day to day lives.
Childhood is often thought of as a magical time. The reality is that many kids face problems that leave them feeling worried, scared, angry, sad or confused. This can be difficult and heart breaking for parents trying their best to connect with and support their child. Very often, despite a caregiver’s best effort to learn more and help solve the problem, a child’s response is “I don’t know”. Play therapy can help provide children with the tools they need to express their thoughts and explore their inner world.

You give so much to everyone else and there is nothing left of you. You have lost yourself and you just can’t cope anymore.

Even in the best of circumstances change is hard. Unwanted or unexpected change can be even harder to accept. Often during life’s difficult transitions (e.g. grief, loss, divorce, new baby) you’re left feeling lonely, confused and even out of control. Things you once enjoyed may now feel overwhelming and stressful. Many of my clients complain of feeling exhausted, overcome with intense emotions and a general feeling of being "stuck". If you've been trying your best to navigate this alone but aren't seeing the results you want, help is here for you.

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 Barrie or for a Barrie 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 Barrie, and play counsellors.
