At Growing Roots Therapy , we offer Play Therapy and Counselling Services for children, youth and families. While our specialization is children and youth, adults often benefit from the creative methods associated with Play Therapy and the resulting impact. Play Therapy reduces the anxiety associated with traditional therapies. We strive to build connections and provide therapeutic experiences through play, art and conversations that lead us in the direction of emotional healing and positive mental well-being.

We believe in the resilience of the human spirit and the healing power of connection, presence and play. We know that life doesn’t always go as planned and we may find ourselves with hurts or symptoms that become overwhelming and get in the way of living the everyday lives we desire.

We provide developmentally appropriate services and a healing space that allows both children and adults to express their true selves. We operate from an attachment perspective and value family connections as part of the healing process.  We work with different approaches including Theraplay, play-based cognitive behavioral therapy, child centered therapy, and with mediums such as art, sand tray and puppetry.

At Growing Roots Therapy, we say that we are all on a path towards “Well Becoming”.

We also love to share what we have learned along the way and specialize in offering workshops and professional development for counsellors and other service professionals in the field.

At Growing Roots Therapy we hope to walk with you and your family to find both your grounding roots and your wings.

“There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings”
