Child & Youth Therapy

Our youth therapists offer support to children struggling with a variety of issues, such as depression or anxiety, and children facing specific challenges, including siblings of people with disabilities, children of divorce, or children facing serious illness or grief and loss.

Your child will be shown empathy, as our youth therapists create a safe and supportive space for your child. A variety of therapy approaches, such as art therapy and sand tray techniques, may be used that respect the development of children and make it easier for your child to express any fears or struggles. Our youth therapists will help your child develop healthy behaviour patterns and effective strategies for coping with difficult issues and resolving problems.

Family therapy treats the family as a system. Common issues can wreak havoc on once loving family relationships: conflicts arising from differences in cultural backgrounds, mismatched styles of communication or levels of comfort with conflict, and clashing views on child rearing practices. Unhealthy patterns of behaviour related to underlying issues, such as addiction, poor anger management, or unresolved grief from the loss of a loved one, place high levels of stress on the family unit, impairing interpersonal relationships within the family as a result.

Our family therapists provide a safe space where interested family members can work to improve lines of communication between members, and restore relationships stressed by misunderstandings and unresolved conflicts, or damaged by harmful interactions or patterns of behaviour. Family therapy helps your family restore empathy and supportive, loving family interactions, and support members struggling to ask for, offer, and accept, forgiveness for past harms done, in order to bring healing to damaged family relationships and restore the family to a strong, loving unit once again.
