NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS.
- Online and limited in-person child, adolescent and family therapy in a safe, warm and confidential environment
- Guided by the unique needs of each child and family; no one size fits all
- Specialize in treating child and adolescent anxiety and mood disorders through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
Children, youth and families face unique challenges in todays society. Environmental stressors, the influence of social media, increased academic pressure, cyberbullying, online exposure to continued social and political upheaval; the list goes on. The numbers of youth struggling with mental health has notably increased in North America*, and yet quality, evidence-based care is often hard to find. As a parent, it can be hard to know whom or what to trust when making decisions about the well-being of your child. Evidence-based child and family therapy can offer hope, relief and direction when youth face social and emotional challenges and families feel off-balance.
I specialize in providing online, activity-based treatment for children and youth. As needed and available, I am also able to provide in-person sessions. My practice is strengths-based and designed to meet the unique needs of each child/teen, parent and family. I use a mix of evidence-based therapeutic models, but specialize in providing comprehensive CBT and DBT to treat anxiety and mood disorders. It is my goal to create a warm, safe and inviting environment for all.
Whatever it is that you, your child and family are going through, it is my goal to help you achieve the level of happiness and stability you deserve. Please explore this website, visit Psychology Today or contact me to learn more. All are welcome.
