Jade's Approach to Therapy

I am passionate about helping individuals overcome daily struggles, heal from painful life experiences, and achieve their future wellness goals. I highly value bringing authenticity to the therapist-client relationship, and I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental space to do the work. Together, we will explore your concerns and develop a treatment plan that fits your unique needs.

I approach treatment through a trauma and attachment informed lens and have advanced skills in Theraplay, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Narrative Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

I have extensive clinical experience working with children, youth, families and adults with complex mental health concerns (including anxiety, mood disorders, ADHD, behavioral challenges, trauma symptoms, dissociation, phobias, attachment disorders and relational challenges).

I have a special interest in working with families to address trauma and attachment injuries and emotional-behavioral concerns in an interactive, playful manner using Theraplay.

Additional Information About Theraplay

Theraplay is an evidence-based, child and family therapy that focuses on improving your child’s behavioural and emotional challenges through the parent child-relationship. Theraplay is a proactive and intensive treatment that is modeled on the natural patterns of healthy interactions between a child and parent. These types of healthy interactions lead to secure attachment and lifelong mental health. Treatment involves respectful, emotionally attuned, interactive and physical play that's based on attachment theory and brain research.

Your relationship with your child is the most powerful and influential element of change. Therefore, by focusing on strengthening and supporting your role as the parent/caregiver we can help your child experience previously difficult interactions in a new way, help them overcome fears, increase trust, and create a positive change in their sense of self.
