Some of my highlights

Carrie is a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#15822) and holds a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology and a degree in Elementary Education. Carrie enjoyed working with children and families as an educator in public and independent school systems in Canada, as well as teaching internationally before turning her focus to counselling. Carrie has completed additional post-graduate training in Expressive Play Therapy and Sand Play Therapy which facilitates her work as a child and youth therapist.

Carrie considers it a privilege to partner with children and adolescents, in collaboration with their caregivers to support emotional, relational and mental health needs. Carrie’s approach to working with children is child-centered, solution-focused and strength-based. Children connect, communicate and develop through play, and providing therapeutic support through play can be especially helpful for children when they cannot find the words to describe what they are thinking or feeling. Children and adolescents often come to therapy needing to work on self-regulation skills, so she works with them to make mind, body, emotion connections in order to increase the awareness that also supports behavior change and coping skills. Through healthy connection and attachment, Carrie supports children and adolescents as they learn to see and express in healthier ways, become more empathetic and resilient, and uncover problem-solving skills.
