Parents & Caregivers

 Parenting and caregiving is an intense and complex commitment full of joy, sorrow, excitement and anxiety. The responsibility of caring for and meeting the needs of a dependent, is enormous and we don't have to navigate this pathway alone.  Together we will find the parenting plan, style and approach that works best for you and your family.

 

In exploring core values, work-life demands and family goals, we help new parents and parents-to-be build strong foundations for communication and shared parenting planning and responsibilities. We will learn about childhood development both physical and emotional. We will learn what's going on in your little one's brain driving their words and actions. Recognizing that all behaviour is communication allows us to build specific workable action plans for peace and harmony in the home. 

 

All strategies are highly practical and individualized, fitting into your schedule and family life.  Our therapists bring their personal and professional experiences as educators, counsellors and mothers to support you in your parenting journey.  We offer gentle guidance and hands on tools that you can put into practice immediately with your children. Cree has trained in the Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) model and use this clinical approach in supporting parents and caregivers to work through emotion "blocks" and other interventions designed to help you connect more deeply with your children.
