I am a licensed psychologist in the province of Alberta who can help you find a new way of understanding your child behaviour and a new way of responding to it.
By creating an environment where trust thrives and where all needs are respected, we will empower your children to discover their potential. There are three biggies in the parent-child relationship: cooperation, respect, and power. I can help you learn how you influence your child’s life and we can work together on what you would like to change. I am passionate about working with children and families and have many years’ experience with play-based therapy, which is a natural way to communicate for children. I am bilingual and speak Russian and English.
