Fostering self esteem, confidence and instilling hope for a brighter future.

THERAPY FOR YOUR CHILD/ADOLESCENT  |  AJAX, ONTARIO

I truly believe that self-esteem, confidence, and acceptance are core traits which are essential to create a sense of wellness within oneself. Working together with your child to strengthen these traits will lead to personal growth, resilience, and help him/her make more positive choices in life.

It is important to find a therapist you feel comfortable with, someone you feel you can trust. For this reason, I offer a free initial phone consultation to answer any questions you may have about the process of therapy, my approach, or how we will work together. I look forward to hearing from you!
