About

Is your child going through a difficult time, having trouble expressing feelings and/or communicating with others? Are they struggling with overwhelm, anxiety or difficulty regulating their emotions? I offer sessions to support your child in different ways: developmentally, emotions awareness and expression and increasing coping skills. The way your child perceives themselves and the world can make all the difference! We use creativity and talk therapy to explore and process thoughts and feelings, and together discover effective coping skills for daily support. It is not necessary to know how to play an instrument to participate.
I am a music therapist, registered psychotherapist, and use combination of verbal and creative arts therapy to address various goals. I work in a very client-focused, holistic approach, and use a play-based therapy approach for younger children.
As someone who has worked with children and mental health for many years, I understand the needs in an interpersonal and family dynamic - the support that is required to help a child reach their highest potential to thrive.
