As Occupational Therapists, we utilise a client-centered approach to assess and understand what may be impacting your child's independent functioning while also considering and addressing their mental health and wellbeing. We focus on play as this is the universal language for children to express their inner world, thoughts and feelings. We aim to support connection between a child's experiences and their narratives as well as connecting with those around them.
Our approach in therapy comprises of 4 main concepts:
Playfulness - Being playful to engage and build a meaningful relationship with your child
Acceptance - Accepting of your child for who they are, their strengths, differences and emotional states
Curiosity - Being curious about their play and behaviours and their perspective of the world
Empathy - Providing empathy with their stories, experiences, and emotions
Individual, dyadic & group therapy
For children and youth with various social, emotional, and behavioural difficulties including those on the spectrum and with sensory processing issues.

We acknowledge the land on which we work and gather is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum agreement. The land is home to many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous peoples.
