My focus is on supporting families with children ages 10+ deal with the challenges of special needs such as ADHD, ODD, Learning Disabilities, Autism, and others. Anxiety and depression can frequently accompany these challenges, for both the child affected as well as the rest of the family, and I hope I can help make a difference. Children can experience medical conditions that impact their mental health as well as their physical well-being. They may not have the opportunity to process their emotions and feelings as they focus on their recovery. Also, when a sick child is given the attention that they need, their siblings can feel neglected. I want to help these children deal with their mental health concerns. Parents are not immune to feelings of anxiety and depression, especially when their children are struggling. A key focus on my practice is to help parents deal with their own mental health challenges as well as create tailored strategies to help support their children. I am a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) with the title "Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)" and hope I can help!
