When my waitlist has availability, you are welcome to request mental health services. I will confirm that I am a good fit for your needs (or contact you to provide recommendations) and contact you as soon as I have space.

Next, we schedule an intake session. In addition to our conversations, I incorporate standardized screening and assessment tools which are specific to developmental stages. I present a plan for what I believe will be most helpful, which we agree to together.

Generally, I like to meet with parents/caregivers on their own first so that you can speak more freely; you may instead choose to include your child in the initial intake session. 

I provide therapy sessions for children and caregivers individually, and together. I use different family, talk, and/or play therapies to suit the specific needs of each child, caregiver, and family!

Some of the challenges I support children and families with are:

  • anxiety

  • ADHD

  • behaviour challenges

  • adoption

  • other caregiving changes, such as parental separation*

  • difficult life experiences (trauma and grief)

  • family relationship challenges

  • sleeping difficulties

I have special interests in supporting early childhood mental health, children who are neurodiverse (such as children with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder), and honoring cultural safety. 

*Please note that I cannot provide recommendations to court for guardianship or parenting time purposes.
