Description

Registered Psychotherapist, Certified Play Therapist
​My interest in helping others started in high school when working at a daycare with a child who was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome. I started my career as a child and youth worker in an Assessment Receiving Group Home for the Children’s Aid Society. I then left the group home setting and worked for the School Board. I furthered my education by obtaining an honours degree in Psychology. Once I began to learn more about play therapy, I realized it truly placed the child at the centre of the therapy, and focused on their goals.

Facility Information

Summary

Generally for children ages 3 to 16, play therapy is a form of Counselling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health.

Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys–such as playhouses and dolls–to understand the child’s behavior and identify issues.

Our therapy area is a safe and welcoming space. Children are given the space to express themselves without feeling any pressure.  After all they are here to “play”!
