Are you a parent who is concerned about your child or adolecent's mental and/or emotional health?
I am able to provide tele-play therapy for children and tele-therapy for adolescents and parents.
I provide a caring and non-judgemental setting for parents to work on reducing family conflicts, behavioral challenges, and other stressors using counseling strategies that are shown to be the most effective in research (e.g. cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy). My work with children and adolescents includes developmentally appropriate counseling strategies, such as therapeutic play and cognitive behavioral therapy. My work focuses both on providing therapy for kids and simultaneously working with parents to help their kids grow out of problematic behaviors outside counseling sessions in daily life.
I have a bachelor and master’s degree in social work with a focus on adolescent mental health. I did my internship at BC Children Hospital’s in-patient psychiatry unit and then worked for a health authority for 5 years with families, children, and adolescents. I have completed training in Child-Centered Play Therapy, Filial Therapy for parents and kids, Therapeutic Sand Play, and Neuroscience and Satir in the Sand Tray (NSST). I have also completed training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy for Trauma, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
