Welcome to Connecting Parents and Children 

Counselling for Children and Families

Teens and Adults  

Connecting Parents and Children offers therapeutic services for family relationship issues, trauma, anxiety, depression and emerging development.  Individual and play therapy services are available for children and adolescents. Individual support and /or family sessions can benefit teens and young adults suffering with mood disorders, anxiety, and social and emotional challenges.  Adult services offered include individual counselling for depression, anxiety, stress, parenting difficulties, and the evolution of life's circumstances.  I work from an attachment framework and also have significant training in supporting both adults and children who have experienced traumatic events.  

My area of focus in supporting families involves strengthening the parent child relationship.  Within that relationship lies the power to nurture and support a child's growth towards social and emotional intelligence.  I will coach you to parent your child in a way that provides insight to his or her unique inner world while gaining empathetic understanding of the meaning behind the behaviours.  A connected and attuned relationship with your child will have a profound impact on the way they behave.  

Therapeutic interventions offered include cognitive behavioural therapy, attachment focused family therapy, play therapy, parent and child play therapy, sand tray therapy, trauma informed care, EMDR, and attachment focused EMDR.  I also offer wrap around services for newly formed adoptive families.
