“A worried parent does better research than the FBI .”

Family stresses are normal but are not always easy to handle and cope with. Although there are many great books, websites and resources available, sometimes you may need more specific support for your child and family. If you are exploring this site, it leads us to believe that you may be considering getting support.

Some parents, children and families may need brief service, sometimes just a few sessions. Others may benefit from more ongoing support for a period of time. Either way, we have over 50 years of combined clinical, practical, and personal experience supporting children, youth, families, biological parents, adoptive parents and foster parents.  We use evidence-based therapeutic approaches, including principles of CBT, DBT, ACT, family systems, child development, attachment and emotionally focused family therapy. Our practice is grounded in trauma-informed care. We use our expertise to provide you with practical, hands-on, effective strategies and support for struggles such as family stressors, parenting teens, children and infants, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, emotional dysregulation, grief and experiences of child maltreatment, including sexual, emotional, and physical abuse and family violence.

We provide a welcoming environment for youth and families in the heart of Waterdown, Ontario.
