What types of counselling do I offer?

I offer a wide range of counselling, from children struggling with regulating their emotions to adults dealing with grief and loss. 

If you don't see your particular struggle listed below, please reach out to me. Not everything we go through can fit neatly into a box. I'd love to set up a free consultation to discuss if I would be a good fit for you or your child. If there is something I'm not able to help you with, I'd love to refer you to a counsellor that better suits your needs.

Child Counselling

Child Counselling

I help children understand their brain, body sensations, emotions and experiences. I help them find coping tools that they can apply to everyday challenges. Play is considered the language of children. Especially in younger children, play can be a better way to learn about the child than sitting down and asking them about their problems. This is why I use the following techniques and activities: play, sand tray, art, books, and games. These practices help children be more at ease and be able to better express themselves.

The main struggles I assist with are:

  • Self-Regulation (Understanding their emotions and how to calm themselves down)

  • Grief/Loss

  • Self-Esteem

  • Anxiety

  • Divorce

  • Bullying

  • Problem-Solving

  • Teaching Resilience

  • Social-Emotional Skills

Teen Counselling

It is not easy being a teen today. There can be so many challenges they face as they grow and as their brains develop. From dealing with changes to their bodies, mental health challenges and school struggles, being a teen can be one of the most difficult times of one's life. With counselling, your teen can develop a wide variety of coping tools to use throughout their life in a "safe space" with an empathetic ear that is non-judgemental.

The main struggles I assist with are:

  • Self-Regulation (understanding their emotions and how to build a toolbox of strategies for life)

  • Grief/Loss

  • Self-Esteem/Body Image

  • Stress/Anxiety

  • Bullying

  • Depression

  • Divorce

  • Teen Related Issues

  • Teen/Parent Conflict

  • Mental Health Challenges

  • Conflict and Resolution

  • Transitions

Parent Coaching

Parent Coaching

The everyday challenges and stresses of being a parent can be exhausting. Whether you're raising young children or growing teens, the struggles never seem to stop. With Parent Coaching sessions, parents will be given proven strategies to support the individual needs of their child. These strategies will help to prevent the power struggle. My goal is to give parents confidence in their parenting and help them build deep connections with their children. Working with parents is a key component of a child's success. 

I provide effective parenting strategies for:

  • When your child has a tantrum

  • Effective discipline

  • Developing coping strategies for effective parenting

  • Building connections with your child

  • Conflict resolution with your child

  • Building self-esteem in your child

  • Help motivate your child

  • Navigate grief and loss

  • Setting goals for your parenting

  • Setting goals for your child's behaviour

  • Working with your child's teacher and school

  • Navigating support through divorce

  • Navigating additional support for your child's mental health and your own
