If your child is struggling at home, at school, with peers, or dealing with difficult life experiences, you as a caregiver can feel at a loss for what to do. As a therapist, I tap into each young person's innate coping skills and creativity, by providing an accepting place for self-expression and growth, and new skills. I also know that parents need support and ideas about how to help children navigate school, peers, and other areas of their life, so I involve families in treatment in many creative ways. I partner with other important people in your child's life, such as teachers and caregivers, to better support your family.

I carefully choose therapy approaches/suggestions for each child and family based on their unique needs and current challenges. I offer play/art therapy and counselling, as well as assessment and practical strategies to improve functioning in all areas of your child's life, including school, child care, home, and social environments.

Over many years as an educator, consultant, and mental health therapist for children 0-19, including those with all kinds of disabilities, I have refined my skills in adapting treatments and consultation services for any child and family. I look forward to working with you, the parent/caregiver as a partner in your special young person's healing.
