Welcome to Thrive Child and Youth Counselling! Thanks for checking out my website.
Choosing to start therapy can be a difficult decision. Taking the first step to reach out is a brave one. Whether it's anxiety, depression, grief/loss, trauma, substance use, relationship or other life challenges, sometimes we need a bit of an unbiased and compassionate response.
I offer nature based therapy when the weather allows. I live on beautiful land and have a German Shepherd dog who likes to work with me. In the spring and summer, we can wander in the garden and eat fresh veggies (or not). Children in particular like to get their hands dirty.
I've been a Registered Clinical Social Worker for over thirty years, most of it spent working with children, youth and families. My approach is to assist clients in exploring their feelings, thoughts and behavior through play, art and other modalities in order to better cope with life's challenges.
I am not taking new referrals at this time. I appreciate your interest in my service.
