CHILD AND ADOLESCENT PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES

ADHD

Our sessions foster a supportive environment for your child to understand their ADHD and develop tools to achieve.

ADHD is one of the first “maybe’s” teachers and parents consider when a child is presenting as disruptive, difficult to contain, fidgety and/or forgetful. We work together to develop an academic plan that responds to their needs and helps them succeed, in school and beyond.

Schedule permitting, I will regularly attend IEP meetings with their school to discuss ways to provide ideal support.

If you are unsure of your child’s ADHD diagnosis, or need an Academic Accommodation, please see this page for more information.

Anxiety

One of the most difficult parts of managing child anxiety is that it manifests in a myriad of negative behaviours. Short tempers, racing thoughts, and acute focus on unwelcome thoughts are indicators of anxiety.

Our treatment begins with creating measurable milestones and clarifying your child’s goals. We search out the root of their anxiety to help them cope long term. My office is a space to celebrate their successes and support them through challenges.

I work with your child to help them name their fears, identify their triggers, and learn coping skills that empower them to manage their anxiety independently.

Depression

Many teens suffer from feeling unheard or invisible in the world. The added demands and intense pressures of adolescence can make them susceptible to developing depression.

Too often, depression in adolescents is dismissed, but depression can manifest in many ways: changes in appetite or weight, energy decrease, outbursts, feelings of worthlessness, helplessness, or even suicidal thoughts.

Creating a safe space for your teen to talk about their issues gives them a chance to identify the source of their maladaptive thoughts, and create strategies to address their challenges early
