Overview of Psychological Services
Counselling for Teens (Adolescents)
I start by focusing on building a strong relationship with your teen to help them feel comfortable and increase their willingness to share and participate in therapy. I use a unique and engaging teaching style to help your teen explore their core values and support them in creating goals to address areas in their life where they are struggling.
Counselling & Consultation for Children
My approach with children typically includes a combination of child-friendly therapy strategies in conjunction with parent consultation. After performing a assessment I will help you understand the root of your child's difficulties and provide you with at-home interventions to support you and your family in managing these difficulties. I use developmentally appropriate strategies to help your child express their emotions so they can better manage emotional and behavioural challenges. I use a network of Occupational Therapists and Language Pathologists who I can refer to, to provide your child with the support they need to lead a rich, full, and meaningful life.
Counselling for Relationship(s)
I use my personal experience handling difficult relationships along with a number of proven strategies to help you work through relationship issues. I will help you clarify what's truly important and meaningful to you and help you use that knowledge to set goals and take actions that enrich the relationships in your life. I work closely with individuals, couples, and families experiencing challenges in their relationship(s).
Group Counselling (NEW)
I co-lead with another therapist (typically a female) so that we can provide group members with two different approaches. I also strive to make group a fun and engaging process which allows group members to feel comfortable and willing to participate. My groups give children and teens an opportunity to build life skills (e.g., confidence, self-esteem, communication) while under the supervision of a trained professional. My groups include outdoor activities and classroom facilitated activities (e.g., art, role-plays, group discussions).
If you are unsure whether I can meet your counselling or assessment needs give me a call to receive a free consultation. You can then decide whether I am a good fit for you or your family.
