DEPRESSION AND GRIEF
Depression and grief can make the world feel like a very lonely place. It can be hard to try to explain the pain felt to others who may not understand. Together, we will consider your child's thoughts, feelings, and actions. From a place of non-judgement and compassion we will identify strategies to boost your child or youth's mood and renew curiosity in life.
ANXIETY AND WORRY
Direct billing is available for members of Alberta Blue Cross, the RCMP, the Canadian Armed Forces, and Veterans.
Every child is unique and special. Understanding a child's cognitive, academic, and social and emotional environment and the role their experiences play in shaping the architecture of their brain can inform how to help them fulfill their special potential. Using the just-right assessment approaches, Jennifer, Christine, and Jolene provide psychoeducational assessments that supports the whole child, family, and their educational environment so that they can shine.
OUTDOOR and MOVEMENT COUNSELLING
Many children and youth struggle to sit across from an adult and share their thoughts, feelings, and sensory experiences. Sometimes young bodies need to move while processing, whether that be through walking, painting, playing a game, or drawing. Utilizing our movement approach to therapy, we will support your child or youth to build upon their strengths and create a toolbox for areas of growth.
EMDR for CHILDREN
The collection of memories we each have become a part of our unique human experience. Sometimes past events that were scary, troubling, or traumatic become stuck in our children's minds and influence thoughts, emotions, and behaviours in the present. EMDR is one of the ways we can help understand how the past can affect the present. Connect with us if you think this might be helpful for your child or youth.
Anxiety turns a mouse into a monster. It makes conveying a simple message seem like delivering a presidential speech. It can turn day to day tasks into a seemingly endless crusade. Through working together, we will focus on calming the mind and being present in the moment. We will identify personal coping strategies that work for your child and move beyond the worry.
