Children’s Healing Studio Ltd

Providing Early Intervention and Prevention Services that Builds Resiliency in Children to Manage Big Life Changes and Loss

Children’s Healing Studio Ltd. is a place where children feel cared for, heard, supported and loved. It is a place where children receive play-based early interventions that support their development; help them to manage big life loss and change; and assist them to recognize, express, and regulate big emotions.


Children's Healing Studio Ltd. also provides consultation services for families and early childhood professionals. Our services include family coaching to support understanding of children's emotions and behaviours, support groups for children and families, and workshops and certifications for early childhood professionals related to child development. We are located in Vaughan ON, but virtual sessions are offered to support children, families, and professionals across the globe.

Here’s Why You Might Seek Services at the Studio

Mental Health Services for Children (Business Card).jpeg

A behaviour (general anxiety/social anxiety/separation anxiety, worries, biting, aggression, regression,

inattentiveness, temper tantrums). Through gathering information about the family and the child’s

history/health, along with observations and 1-1 interactions with the child, I can get to the root of the

behaviour and provide interventions during our sessions and to be continued at home.

A change or loss in the family (death, divorce, a move in- home or schools, new baby in the house,

parental/familial illness). With any loss and change comes unwanted behaviours. Many of which are

described above. Through family and 1-1 sessions with the child, I support children with understanding the loss,

processing the emotions that come with the loss, developing a new “normal”, and adopting coping

strategies to regulate their emotions and behaviour


A special need (needing support for the social and emotional development of their child…making friends, communicating with others, reciprocal playing with friends, following rules, expressing emotions, regulating

behaviour). Through 1-1 sessions with the child, in Studio, at home, and at school, I can support the child’s

social/emotional development
