Child & Youth Counselling Victoria

Welcome to Rising Sun Counselling & Neurofeedback, Victoria BC.


As a Registered Clinical Counsellor in Victoria, BC, my goal is to help children feel safe and capable to be their true selves at home and in the world.  By combining the most effective methods in child psychotherapy with cutting edge brain technology, I support children ages 5 to 18 to release underlying tension, build confidence, and to access innate resources for problem solving and self-regulation.  My specialty areas include anxiety, trauma, depression, behaviour management, parent coaching, and support for children with autism, adhd, and learning challenges.

My home-based office is situated on two acres of lush forested land near the ocean in Cadboro Bay, Victoria, BC ~ a welcoming and inspiring setting for my young clients to heal and grow.

Psychotherapeutic modalities:playroom

I tailor my approach to each child and their specific needs.  Modalities that I utilize include:

~ Child-Centred Play Therapy – including imaginative play, expressive arts and movement
~ Mindfulness and Somatic Therapy – guided meditation and body awareness activities
~ Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – skill building for coping with stress and anxiety; GoZen!
~ Nature Therapy – spending time in the forest or by the ocean is soothing and eases discomfort around talking
~ Parent Coaching / Family Therapy – collaborating for long term change in the child’s life


Cutting-edge Brain Training:

Neurofeedback is a powerful evidence-based approach to rewiring the brain.  It is child-friendly, non-invasive, and especially effective when coupled with other therapeutic approaches.  Watch the video below to learn how neurofeedback has impacted a group of children at a Victoria-based independent school, Arts Calibre Academy:
