Children learn best through play. Our Child Psychologists integrate a variety of creative and effective therapeutic modalities into session to help children and teens feel heard, supported, and important. Play, sand and art-based therapy are often utilized to keep children engaged and motivated. When working with teens, we meet them where they are at and prioritize establishing a positive relationship before diving into emotional topics. Our goal is to help children feel safe enough to process their emotional experiences so that they can heal and grow. Sessions often involve teaching and practicing practical tools for emotional and behavioural regulation, self-esteem, confidence, social skills, and problem solving.
Our team highly values the involvement of parents/caregivers in a child’s therapeutic care. We will work alongside you to support you with your child’s optimal emotional and psychological development.

Social development is a pivotal aspect of childhood. We help children learn skills to build and maintain friendships, create healthy boundaries, and improve positive communication with peers and family members.

This often involves learning how to tame anxiety and worry, melt frustration and anger, and increase calmness and happiness.

They will learn how to tackle new challenges, and reduce negative self-talk and worry, so that they can engage in meaningful activities with their peers.
